The July Book Club selection is The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continous Improvement to Create Radically Successful Companies by Eric Ries.
“Ries shows us how to cut through the fog of uncertainty that surrounds startups. His approach is rigorous; his prescriptions are practical and proven in the field. The Lean Startup will change the way we think about entrepreneurship. As startup success rates improve, it could do more to boost global economic growth than any management book written in years.” —Tom Eisenmann, Professor of Entrepreneurship, Harvard Business School
Here's my summary of the book
"It's a treatise that takes "Lean" management philosophy and techniques and translates them into both start up companies and starting up a new product. Great case studies, and great steps to follow if you are starting anything new. It will challenge what you know and what we read in the papers. Success comes from more than a great idea and luck."
Doors open at 7:30. Review begins at 8:00. We'll be done by 9:00 AM sharp. Coffee provided.
"The Review and Synk Notes are better than the book!"
