Using Lean Principles to learn about Start Ups

Budding entrepreneurs at St Mark’s spent three hours with Lean expert Bruno Pešec from Norway, and Alister Lee, learning about the principles of Lean last week.  By playing the Lean Board game, which is competitive and fun, students were able to learn the core lean start up principles such as the importance of uncovering what customers really want before setting out to build a product.   Seven students from College and a further four from UniSA worked together on their mythical companies (based on real ones) in a competitive environment.  We hope to facilitate more workshops of this kind into the future.
