SXSW 2015

I'm excited to be speaking at SXSW for the first time in two years. On March 16, I've promised to talk about "Everything Eric Ries Has Learned Since 2011" - the ways the Lean Startup movement has grown and transformed since I published The Lean Startup. I'll also be officially announcing the launch of the Kickstarter campaign that I teased a few weeks ago.

Here's the official blurb:
In The Lean Startup, I argued that entrepreneurship is the management discipline that deals with situations of extreme uncertainty. I claimed that the entrepreneurial mindset could be used in companies of all sizes to pursue continuous innovation. And I claimed that companies could build an entrepreneurial culture by changing their processes and systems of accountability. I didn’t know if anyone would take me seriously. I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came next.
Over the past five years, I have had the chance to travel all over the world, working with companies of just about every size you can imagine. Three guys working on a garage on a new app? Check. Small business? Check. Religious nonprofits? Check. Medium sized manufacturing companies? Check. Hypergrowth pre-IPO tech startups? Check. Massive government bureaucracies? Check. Some of the largest and slowest multinational companies in the world? You bet.
What have I learned? Come hear the whole story...
On Monday, March 16th at 12:30, I'll be sharing what I've learned from five years of working with organizations of all shapes and sizes who are embracing the Lean Startup methodology.

Afterwards, we're having a party. Although this is mostly for friends and family, we've set aside a handful of tickets for members of the public. If you're in Austin, I hope you'll join the Official Lean Startup SXSW Party as we celebrate the kickoff of my Kickstarter campaign. The festivities will be held that Monday evening from 6:00pm - 9:00pm at Old School Bar & Grill.

Lastly, if you want to be the absolute first to hear about the Kickstarter campaign when it goes live, you can sign up on the sneak preview page here.
