Lean Startup Night Cairo by Mahmoud

A Volunteer-Run Event

Escaping the Priority Trap

In his book, The Lean Startup, Eric Ries highlights the value of the iterative & incremental approach to technology development AKA agile( & scrum;) he also elaborates on his lean startup model by publicizing MVP & “The Build, Measure, Learn” loop. All this in mind, almost at all levels and growth phases of businesses, tech teams are continuously being bombarded by difficult yet crucial prioritization questions resulting in decision fatigue, and inaction.

We will introduce “OKRs” Objectives & Key Results. A simple yet effective goal-setting tool that guarantees visibility & alignment across the whole organization; Business, Tech, Design, Finance, Operation, etc.

This will extend your “lean startup” knowledge with OKRs a model pioneered by Andy Grove; Former Intel CEO & John Doerr; VC & Author of Measure What Matters. John introduced the model to Google back in the early days & they adopted it on-the-spot & have been publicizing it ever-since.

Whether you are a company of one, A small startup, A growing one or a big enterprise, OKRs along with Agile & Lean Startup models will definitely be an invaluable addition to your toolbox.

Please note that the registration will start at 6:00 PM for 30 minutes before the session, don’t be late!

Before the end of the day, we’ll play a little game at the end of the day to have fun!
