Running Lean Workshop in London

conor 6th of November 2011 by conor

Web2Ireland has a very big readership in the UK both from UK startups and also from an ever-growing number of Irish startups who have either moved there completely or keep a strong presence there, particularly in London.

So I thought that audience might be interested in a Running Lean Workshop that is being held in London on Wednesday. It is being run by Ash Maurya, who is very well known for taking the quite academic and Enterprisey nature of much of the Lean material out there and turning it into a practical guide with more of a consumer web focus.

We have been using his book and one-page biz-plan methodology as part of the LaunchPad programme in NDRC and we’re big fans. We’ll be attending the workshop in Dublin.

So if you want to run your startup on Lean principles but want to get beyond principles, this should be perfect for you.

It’s £149.00 for the day and that includes a copy of the book. You need to register here.

Venue is Main Lecture Theatre, University of Arts – London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle, London SE1 6SB.

Wednesday 9th November from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
