Lean Startups

There is a a whole body of business wisdom growing up around the concept of Lean Startups.  

Essentially, this means taking a very controlled approach to learning about your embryonic business so that you can grow as economically and as fast as possible.

If you are into a start-up, this is essential reading for you.

There is a lot more written on the topic of Lean Start-ups than we can reasonably cover in 12Faces.
