Agile for Entrepreneurs

I had the chance to work with a group of entrepreneurs recently. My workshop goal was to give them good project management tools in under 2 hours.

It worked! One student said, “I could feel my brain learning.” 💥

For an entrepreneur, most projects have a lot of uncertainty. Creating new products, setting prices, and entering new markets are all endeavors that are hugely unpredictable.

So we focused on those types of projects. I gave them a 4-step process to use. I told them they need to work quickly, focus first on the biggest questions, figure out small steps to get data that provides some answers, and reflect regularly on whether they are moving in the right direction.

It was eye-opening for this group of young entrepreneurs and they all felt better prepared to approach their essential projects. 🚀
