Whether you work at a start-up or a large, established company, we all know that building great products is hard. Most new products fail. This book helps improve your chances of building successful products through clear, step-by-step guidance and advice.
The Lean Startup movement has contributed new and valuable ideas about product development and has generated lots of excitement. However, many companies have yet to successfully adopt Lean thinking. Despite their enthusiasm and familiarity with the high-level concepts, many teams run into challenges when trying to adopt Lean, because they feel like they lack specific guidance on what exactly they should be doing.

Determine your target customers
Identify underserved customer needs
Create a winning product strategy
Decide on your Minimum Viable Product (MVP)
Design your MVP prototype
Test your MVP with customers
Iterate rapidly to achieve product-market fit
