The Lean Analytics Model

Episode #351 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

Every week (on Saturday), the blog hosts a link exchange between Hugh McGuire (PressBooks, Librivox, etc...), Alistair Croll (BitCurrent, Year One Labs, GigaOM, Human 2.0, Solve For Interesting, the author of Complete Web Monitoring, Managing Bandwidth: Deploying QOS in Enterprise Networks, etc...), and me. It wasn't a random selection of people. I chose Hugh and Alistair because they come from diverse backgrounds and are people who - no matter what the occasion - keep me on my intellectual toes. In short, these two are too smart for their own good, and hanging out with them makes me want to learn more and do more and be smarter. Alistair has had a fascinating career. Most recently, he co-authored a book called, Lean Analytics - Use Data To Build A Better Startup Faster, with Ben Yoskovitz. In this episode, we debunk the whole "lean" model and discuss what data is useful and what data is clouding our judgment. I hope you learn as much as I did from this chat. Enjoy the conversation...
