Justin Souter (lean start-up expert) — Building successful products with lean start-up thinking.

Lean Startup methods have emerged in the last 6 years as a distillation of Silicon Valley best practice.

Before you’re ready to write a business plan, Lean Startup methods help you prioritise what to do next, find early adopters to co-create your product or service, and ‘structuralise’ your thinking so you can share it with co-Founders, team members, and potential investors.

Justin will combine Lean Startup thinking with a toolset for product management to give you a framework to give Chief Product Officers the wherewithal to succeed.

About Justin

With a long track record in IT consultancy, Justin now works with entrepreneurs and corporate innovators and to find the solutions, business models, and customers for themselves using lean start-up, as a visual and straightforward process.
