How can Lean and Agile help my business?

Most businesses fail because they solve the wrong problems.

Design processes like Lean and Agile have revolutionized the software, manufacturing and marketing industries by ensuring thatbusinesses stay connected to the needs of their customers. These techniques allow you to do more with smaller steps, and make sure you’re heading in the right direction, not just taking a big punt on an idea.

Leancamp is an unconference – an open, interactive event.

Not only will our speakers present and run workshops, you’re encouraged to do the same!  If you have something interesting to share, or ideas you’d like to discuss, you’ll find like-minded others ready to participate. Don’t be shy – this is a social event!

We’re also running an ongoing panel talk show, where everyone can join in!

What will I learn?

  • how to grow to millions of customers with small teams
  • how to focus your time on getting market traction faster
  • how to create and evolve your business model
  • how to build repeatable sales & marketing processes
