Leancamp - Session Ideas

Entrepreneurs, designers, managers, developers, innovators – how can they help you? Leancamp is all about learning from people from other disciplines and different perspectives. It’s a rare opportunity to raise your current challenges and ideas, so that others can help you through them and contribute their knowledge.

Please comment and discuss. Use votes to register interest so the session host can understand if the topic is interesting to people. (Votes do not get used to choose the session – we’ll do that together at 10am.)

To help get the discussions going and give you an idea of what topics people might be interested in, please engage in the conversation – be open with your challenges and constructive with your suggestions

Want to make the most of this? There is some guidance, tips and tricks to get you started at http://leanca.mp/getting-started.

What session would you like to propose at Leancamp?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Kanban primer - designing your Scrumban board

    Seems like the Kanban session is proposed for London - so let's make a similar one in Barcelona! The idea is to share different approaches when designing your first kanban-scrumban board for your team. I will introduce our Scrumban approach, which I must say is quite popular (see http://www.slideshare.net/proyectalis/110506-scrumban-xp2011), but I want to see and shareLean Startup oriented Stuff!! ;)

        • Hypothesis to customer interview to actionable learning - a #custdev how-to

          I'd like to share an overview of the process I use for Customer Development, which has been evolved by combining insight from Johanna Kollmann, Janice Fraser, Cindy Alvarez, Rob Fitzpatrick and Ian Collingwood and others. Since both Rob and Ian - and Brant Cooper - will be joining us in Barcelona, I'd like to invite them to a round-table to discuss the approach and make suggestions.

          • Unleashing innovation and learning: labs, retrospectives, pair programming and other Lean & Agile strategies

            The title is pretty self explanatory: I'd like to share different strategies and practices to successfully increase learning and innovation on Agile & Lean environments. I will share some of the most interesting ones I've helped to implement on hundreds of Agile teams over Europe.

            • Cohort Analysis - how to do it in practice with Google Analytics (Barcelona)

              The aim is to continue Dan Hill thoughts from LeanCamp London:

              "Cohort analysis is a powerful tool to understand your customers and ensure the product decisions you're making are actually creating a better service for your users. How being better should come before, and ultimately leads faster to, being bigger.

              We'll look at what a cohort analysis is, how to use one in your startup or company, and how you can get started quickly with tools you're already using. Let me know if you have any thoughts or ideas for focus!"

                • Guesstimations: nunca dejes que la falta de un dato te impida seguir avanzando

                  Esta charla se impartirá en castellano. Esta es una charla sencilla que toca un tema de gran utilidad práctica. Cuando emprendes, especialmente si estás 'trampeando', a menudo te encuentras con que un dato que crees necesitas para seguir avanzando no está a tu alcance. "Oh, Dios Mío, no sale en Google!". Y ni hablar de hacer un 'estudio de mercado' o similar. Llegados a ese punto, lo mejor es 'Guesstimar'. Un ejemplo claro es determinar si tu mercado es atractivo - si es suficientemente grande. En diez minutos puedes conseguir una cifra que te permitirá continuar avanzando. No es magia,…

                    • Cómo trabajar, de verdad, con tus supuestos e hipótesis: el uso de los Árboles Lógicos de TOC

                      Esta charla se impartirá en castellano. Es muy fácil decirle a un emprendedor que la mayor parte de lo que cree son "supuestos" y que debe "verificarlos". Lo que nadie te enseña es una manera de trabajar de forma estructurada, sistemática y solvente con dichos supuestos. Las mejores herramientas del mundo para hacer esto fueron desarrolladas por el Dr. Goldratt, padre de la Theory of Constraints. Se denominan 'Thinking Processes' y coloquialmente, Árboles Lógicos. Esta herramienta contiene sus propios 'tests' para verificar la solidez del razonamiento y ayuda a identificar, sí que sí, qué supuestos son críticos y deben testarse…

                      • Using the Business Model Canvas to spot assumptions #bmgen

                        Having used the canvas for several years, and now working directly with Alex Osterwalder, I've met a lot of people who have developed new techniques with it. Some of them have been instrumental in spotting killer assumptions, so I'd like to share those with you. Broadly, I'll tell you about finding critical points in your business model assumptions, choosing a growth engine, validating your business model with real and hypothetical numbers, and if there's time, prototyping widely to spot better hypotheses and record better customer input. I imagine this will be a fast and broad overview, so if there's any…

                        • Are Lean Startup methodologies hurting innovation?

                          There is a current belief that startups are not aiming high enough. Are lean startups and customer development practices hurting innovation in startups?

Lecciones de la experiencia: qué funciona, qué no lo hace, qué necesitamos desarrollar.

                            • How can accelerators and incubators help you maximize the potential of your business idea?

                              In the beginning everyone does mistakes. It's difficult to launch a new product and a new company and lots of startups died in the first 6 months because they don't have the right knowledge, support, network and tools to launch a business.
                              So, I would like to ask everyone to share their start-up experiences and I would like to hear your ideas on how accelerators and incubators should work in order to help start-ups maximize their potential since the very beginning.

                              • Integrating design and research into Agile

                                What is the best way to integrate customer development research and design into product development using Agile?

                                I have no solutions and I'm looking to start a debate with people applying Agile, both from the development and design (UX/Visual design) perspectives, so we can find together some actionable ideas to implement in our work.

                                Some problems I find from the research/design front:

                                - it's difficult to estimate research when your audience have not been defined.
                                - research tasks need to be redefined and time extended to get relevant results.
                                - design tasks have an iterative nature, how you fit that…

                                • Introducing Unassumer to test core business assumptions

                                  The current iteration of Unassumer creates a survey to test your assumptions regarding who your customer is, what problems they want solved, and what solutions appeal to them. I'll show the product and would like to discuss where to take it.

                                      • In the founders' studio with Joel Gascoigne, founder of Buffer

                                        Joel founded Buffer (http://bufferapp.com) and used Lean Startup to take it from idea to first paying customer in 7 weeks ! And that was part-time bootstrapping!

                                        Joel will be in Hong Kong, but has agreed to Skype in for a session. We'll do the In The Founders' Studio interview format, so everyone can take the role of the interviewer and dig into topics useful to them.
