Hi, fellow Indie Hackers,
The Lean Startup is a book most founders usually read at one point or the other. If you've not read it, chances are that you've experienced the frameworks mentioned in the book at your place of work.
It has been 5 years since I last read the book so this was the perfect time for a refresher, as I'm jumping into a new project as we speak.
The Lean Startup operates on the quick feedback and iteration model. However, there's a step before building out a minimum viable product.
The step is deciding whether or not to even build the product. Here are 4 good questions to ask yourself before you jump in headfirst in a project:
Assuming your answer are affirmative, build out an MVP, talk to the customers, measure, learn, and pivot or persevere.
P.S. I read and summarize business books like these on DIY MBA
on a weekly basis. Check it out if you're interested.
