5.0 out of 5 stars A "must-have" and "must-practice"!, March 29, 2012
The Startup Owner's Manual shows you how to test business models. If you want to avoid infant/instant mortality of your venture and boost success chances, this book is a "must-have" and "must practice".

No matter if you are a start-up building a business or a corporation building a new growth engine: You need this book! However, reading it won't be enough. You need to practice testing and pivoting business models. The Startup Owner's Manual will teach you how and it nicely builds on our Business Model Canvas!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading for Startups or Large Companies, October 23, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Four Steps to the Epiphany is a must-have because too many business models fall victim to unproven assumptions that look good on paper and in a business plan.

This book will help you avoid that trap by reducing the risk and increasing the success chances of your start-up or corporate project. In The Four Steps Blank outlines a practical approach that will help you move from a business model hypothesis to a tested and scalable model in an concrete way and with low initial cash requirements.

I use Blank's method in conjunction with the Business Model Canvas to help companies reduce their risk of implementing new business models. Blank's 4-step method shows readers how to systematically test and validate business models 'by getting out of the building and talking to customers' before moving on to launching and scaling.

Blank's book convinces not only through its content, but through the author's proven entrepreneurial track record. If you are really serious about succeeding with your start-up or corporate project buy the book now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gamechanger, July 27, 2010
With Gamestorming Dave, Sunni, and James created one of the most valuable and applicable collection of tools and techniques for organizational design that I have ever come across. The "games" outlined in the book help you make ideas more tangible and meetings more productive, notably through visual techniques. Gamestorming is a window into the future of how groups will work.

There is no way around this book if you are serious about making innovation and change happen in your organization.
