“The Lean Startup”, by Eric Ries, June In-Synk Book Review

My friend, Micheal Synk has been leading in-person business book reviews in Memphis, TN for a number of years. The one coming up on July 13 speaks right to my heart. Having lived in the world of Six Sigma for 3 years and having grown up with an entrepreneurial father, The Lean Start Up: How today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Improvement to Create Radically Successful Companies should prove to be interesting.

If you’ll be in the Memphis area on July 13, and if entrepreneurship and continuous improvement are in your blood, you’ve got to attend Micheal’s book review. And If You Go: Tell ‘im Dr. Phil Sent Ya’. (Who knows, maybe he’ll do a review of Managing Employee Turnover some day!)

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.
