Business Assumptions Exercise

by Giff on December 12, 2011

I recently updated my “startup assumptions” deck to the below version (link), and took the team involved with my current project through the exercise. It was a great way to get hypotheses on the table and see if people are on the same page. The next phase is prioritizing the assumptions and starting to run experiments to de-risk the important ones.

    Hey Giff – this has always been on my top list of handy tools. I’m glad I got to learn the thinking behind it from you at Leancamp.nnI’m about to kick off a bootstrapping course with about 25 founders, and I think this is the perfect way to dive in and get momentum. u00a0Do you have any tips on facilitating groups with it?nnCheers,nSal

    Excellent “lite” way to get started on business model thinking! Maps nicely into the Business Model Canvas #bmgen
