Navigating Your Way to Startup Success, Paperback Book

Navigating Your Way to Startup Success Paperback


If you could avoid every failure in life, would you?

Failure is how we learn, how we grow, and how we improve.

Running a startup is no different than that: learning, growing, and improving all the way to success.

This 244-page how-to fail fast guide includes tools to help you get "analytical about failure".

Each chapter contains real-world examples as well as ways to potentially avoid the failure in the first place. The secret to failing well is to learn from it: to adapt and minimize the impact.

Every business has failures. No business succeeds without some change of plan. This book will show you how to create a startup designed to test its assumptions and procedures so those that are not worthy fail--often and fast.

This book builds on modern startup management techniques like Agile and Lean to bring an analytical and quantitative framework to the most common startup failures. Readers will learn: The most common startup failures and how to learn from or avoid them. How to fail faster to learn faster. How to deal with failure and success, as well as the ups-and-downs of running a startup.
