Running Lean
Ash Maurya
Tapa dura — Inglés
$23.000 $17.500
Descripción

We live in an age of unparalleled opportunity for innovation. We're building more products than ever before, but most of them fail--not because we can't complete what we set out to build, but because we waste time, money, and effort building the wrong product.
What we need is a systematic process for quickly vetting product ideas and raising our odds of success. That's the promise of Running Lean.

In this inspiring book, Ash Maurya takes you through an exacting strategy for achieving a "product/market fit" for your fledgling venture, based on his own experience in building a wide array of products from high-tech to no-tech. Throughout, he builds on the ideas and concepts of several innovative methodologies, including the Lean Startup, Customer Development, and bootstrapping.

Running Lean is an ideal tool for business managers, CEOs, small business owners, developers and programmers, and anyone who's interested in starting a business project.

  • Find a problem worth solving, then define a solution
  • Engage your customers throughout the development cycle
  • Continually test your product with smaller, faster iterations
  • Build a feature, measure customer response, and verify/refute the idea
  • Know when to "pivot" by changing your plan's course
  • Maximize your efforts for speed, learning, and focus
  • Learn the ideal time to raise your "big round" of funding
"If you are starting a company, or want to adopt the Lean Startup approach, Running Lean is a must read."
- Brad Feld, Managing Director, Foundary Group

La Clave es el Por Qué
Simon Sinek
Tapa blanda — Español
$23.000 $20.000
Descripción

Hay personas y organizaciones que son pioneras y logran éxitos continuamente. En cambio, hay otras, quizá mucho más cualificadas, que pasan desapercibidas. Steve Jobs, los hermanos Wright, Martin Luther King, HowardSchultz, Walt Disney, Harley Davidson... son ejemplos de grandes líderes y de empresas líderes. Son modelos que nos inspiran para actuar.

En el liderazgo es fundamental tener un PORQUÉ nítido y potente, creer en una idea, una marca, con tanta convicción que incite a las personas a pasar ala acción. Sinek lo argumenta en este brillante texto inspirador.

«Una exploración potente y penetrante de lo que separa a las grandes empresas y a los grandes líderes del resto.» Poli Lavare, coautora de Mavericks at Work

«Este libro te llevará a niveles de excelencia que nunca habías pensado que podrías conseguir.» General Chuck Horner, oficial de la Fuerza Aérea de los Estados Unidos

«Como nos explica Simon Sinek, en el liderazgo lo que quiero hacer y cómo lo haré no es el factor principal, lo fundamental es por qué quiero hacerlo.»
Ángel Castiñeira y Josep M. Lozano, profesores de ESADE y autores del libro El Poliedro del liderazgo

Biografía del autor

Biografía del autor

Eight-time entrepreneur-turned-educator Steve Blank is credited with launching the Lean Startup movement. He’s changed how startups are built, how entrepreneurship is taught, how science is commercialized, and how companies and the government innovate.

Recognized as a thought leader on startups and innovation, Steve was named one of the Thinkers50 top management thinkers and recognized by the Harvard Business Review as one of 12 Masters of Innovation. 

His Harvard Business Review cover story (May 2013) defined the Lean Startup movement. 

He teaches his Lean LaunchPad class at Stanford, Berkeley, Columbia and NYU, among others; and created the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps that is now the standard for science commercialization in the U.S. His Hacking for Defense class at Stanford is revolutionizing how the U.S. defense and intelligence community deploys innovation with speed and urgency, and its sister class, Hacking for Diplomacy, is doing the same for foreign affairs challenges managed by the U.S. State Department.

A prolific writer and speaker, Steve blogs at www.steveblank.com. His articles regularly appear in Forbes, Fortune, The Atlantic and Huffington Post.

Bob Dorf is likely the second most knowledgeable Lean and Customer Development expert on the planet, second only to Steve Blank, who developed the methodology and spent a decade extending and refining it. Together with Steve Blank, Bob published The Startup Owner’s Manual: The Step-by-Step Guide for Building a Great Company. Today, after two years of near-fulltime research and writing, it’s Amazon.com’s #1 Business/Entrepreneurship bestseller, published in 15 languages worldwide. The 608-page, painstakingly detailed guide is the most comprehensive, rigorous step-by-step roadmap available anywhere, guiding startup founders throughout the world. 

Bob Dorf travels the world, helping startups, foreign governments, and major corporations learn how to effectively deploy Customer Development process through intensive 8-10 week training sessions, as well as one- and two-day workshops and hands-on consulting that he conducts repeatedly in Russia, Latin America, and throughout the US. He teaches the Lean LaunchPad program at Columbia Business School, where he is an Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship, and has led training sessions at Tech de Monterrey, Mexico, Skolkovo Business School in Moscow, and repeatedly for the government of Colombia and Moscow’s GVA Launch Gurus “Startup Academy.”

Entrepreneurial from the age of 12, Bob received his last W-2 some 40 years ago, when he left a great news editor’s job at WINS Radio in New York to launch his first major startup. Since then, he has personally founded seven companies, including—as he puts it—“two homeruns, two base hits, and three solid tax losses.”

El Libro Negro del Emprendedor
Fernando Trías de Bes
Tapa blanda — Español
$16.500 $11.780
Descripción

Ser emprendedor constituye una postura vital, una forma de enfrentarse al mundo que implica disfrutar con la incertidumbre y la inseguridad de qué sucederá mañana. No existen ideas brillantes que, por sí solas, den lugar a negocios redondos: lo esencial es cómo un concepto se pone en práctica. Sin embargo el 90 % de las iniciativas fracasan antes de cuatro años y sólo el 3% de los manuales de empresa se dedican a explicar por qué. De ahí la relevancia de este libro. Fernando Trías de Bes, coautor de La buena suerte, analiza los factores clave del fracaso y define los rasgos que debe reunir un verdadero emprendedor: motivación y talento para ver algo especial en una idea que puede que otros ya conozcan. Pero, por encima de todo, es necesario disponer de un espíritu luchador: no fracasan las ideas, sino son las ilusiones las que se dejan vencer por falta de cintura, imaginación y flexibilidad para afrontar imprevistos.

Charlas TED
Chris Anderson

$22.000 $15.000
Descripción

Desde que se hizo cargo de TED en 2001, Chris Anderson ha demostrado que una charla breve y cuidadosamente preparada puede ser la clave para generar empatía, suscitar emoción, intercambiar conocimiento y promover un sueño compartido. Una charla bien planificada puede electrizar a todo un público y transformar su visión de las cosas; su poder puede ser muchísimo mayor que cualquier palabra escrita.

Anderson ha trabajado de cerca con todos los personajes que han dado esas charlas que tanto nos han motivado, y en estas páginas nos desvela las interioridades de los speechs de algunos de nuestros conferenciantes favoritos, desde sir Ken Robinson a Amy Cuddy, pasando por Elizabeth Gilbert, Salman Khan, Dan Gilbert o Monica Lewinsky.

Charlas TED pone a tu alcance la difícil faceta de hablar bien en público y te equipa para que des lo mejor de ti. No existe ninguna fórmula predeterminada, dos charlas nunca deberían ser idénticas, pero sí existen herramientas que dotan de poder a cualquier conferenciante. Estamos, sin duda, ante el nuevo manual del siglo XXI para lograr una verdadera comunicación eficaz y es de lectura obligada para todo el que quiera causar impacto con sus ideas.
