Conducting lean iterate-and-test cycles with physical goods as well as with software offerings (for manufacturing firms). This book describes a systematic approach to implementing Lean Startup practices in large organizations.

It is based on elements of practice developed by leading academics and practitioners in the corporate world, and it brings together the pieces in a practical and integrated way. The book includes case studies of the approach from several different industries.
