“Lean” Liberty? – Moneyball and the Investment Readiness Level-video

The whole idea of a “Lean Startup” mentality as it applies to both Government and the Arts and Culture are very interesting to me. Can our Constitution be seen as a “Lean” Government in that it is the result of known facts about the human spirit and the thirst for power? The National Science Foundation is currently using “Lean” methodologies (thanks to Steve Blank) to direct it’s grant application process. Could a “Lean” approach to government spending get us out of debt and growing again? What would a “Lean” approach to HealthCare policy look like? Can “Lean” get us back to Liberty?

Moneyball and the Investment Readiness Level-video

Posted on December 21, 2013 by steveblank

Eric Ries was kind enough to invite me to speak at his Lean Startup Conference.

In the talk I reviewed the basic components of the Lean Startup and described how we teach it. I observed that now that we’ve built software to instrument and monitor the progress of new ventures (using LaunchPad Central), that we are entering the world of evidence-based entrepreneurship and the Investment Readiness Level.
