London Calling

Happy New Year!

Four months ago, The Lean Startup debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list. Since then, I have been immersed in a non-stop whirlwind book tour of North America, filled with as many events, interviews, and talks as I could physically manage. On Monday, I’m taking The Lean Startup across the pond to the UK to launch the first international edition.

A complete list of book tour stops for my journey is below. I hope you'll join me, either in person or virtually. You can also stay up-to-date by following me on Twitter or on Plancast.

And for those that have been asking, yes, a host of translations are in the works. I've included a preliminary list at the end of this post.

Most new businesses fail. But most of those failures are preventable. The Lean Startup is a new approach to business that's being adopted around the world. It is changing the way companies are built and new products are launched. The Lean Startup is about learning what your customers really want. It's about testing your vision continuously, adapting and adjusting before it's too late. Now is the time to think Lean.
This event marks the publication of Eric Ries new book The Lean Startup

His book, 'The Lean Startup', is an incredible work. Its only flaw is its name. Eric's principles of innovation apply to any organisation of any type and of any size, and not just startups.
Lean is one of the major trends shaping our world and its impact goes beyond just optimizing our supply chains. Lean startups can be the most capital efficient companies in the world, because they strive to prevent energy from being expended uselessly. Human talent, passion, and wisdom is too precious a commodity to allow it to be wasted.
