Recommend course:


The Lean Startup approach is becoming increasingly popular among companies of all sizes and organizations of all kinds. There are a lot of buzz words thrown around and the meaning gets muddled, but at its core, the Lean Startup approach is a way to apply the scientific method across business and product development.
