Enter our competition for a chance to win this bestselling book which aims to innovate your business.

Whether you're thinking of starting your own business or simply want to evaluate the one you have already, this bestselling book 'The Lean Startup' by Eric Ries will help to guide you on your journey and make it a success.

About the Book

"The Lean Startup is a new approach to business that's being adopted around the world. It is changing the way companies are built and new products are launched.

The Lean Startup is about learning what your customers really want. It's about testing your vision continuously, adapting and adjusting before it's too late.

Now is the time to think Lean."

What does 'Lean' Mean?

Lean thinking is a business term and methodology coined by James P. Womack and Daniel T. Jones during their study of the Toyota production system.

Here's a great definition of the term: 'The aim of lean thinking is to create a lean enterprise, one that sustains growth by aligning customer satisfaction with employee satisfaction, and that offers innovative products or services profitably while minimizing unnecessary over-costs to customers, suppliers and the environment.'

Here at Something Different we consider lean thinking in our practices and believe it's an important concept for both startup and existing businesses to explore. 

If you're interested in finding out more about the principles of lean, take a look at this article from Think Business.
