This event is for anyone wanting to apply lean startup principles to the creative process.Â In today’s creative economy, “Management” has a negative connotation for a reason. Management is a science that extracts efficiency out of stable and well understood systems (ex: supply chains). Leadership is required when dealing with the risk of unknowns, when you need to bring new insights to bear to solve a problem (ex: innovation in a changing world).Â A balance of freedom and control is essential to unleash the creativity that drives modern capitalism. Too much control stifles efficient problem solving, too much freedom opens the doors for expansive solutions that don’t have market fit.Â With its focus on Outcomes vs. Output, Lean Startup Methodologies can help lead teams to success, surfacing risk early and providing data to guide future decision making. The talk will include case study examples working to bring new ventures and value to market at Yahoo Brickhouse, HP Labs, the startup Betable.com, and even in affordable housing at TNDC.org.Â This event is sponsored byÂ WyncodeÂ &Â FIU School of Computing and Information Science.Â Free admission with RSVP; $20 for admission + T-shirt.
