    One thought on “UX for Lean Startups

    1. Jose Papo on said:

      Laura Klein's book is fantastic. If you are expecting a web design, interaction design or color/look-feel design then you are in the wrong place. Laura writes about those things, but his focus is to show how a product team using the Lean Startup method need to iterate and test continuously the User Experience.The best subjects and insights I liked in her book:-- How to do Early Validation of problem/solution-- Tips about MVP Experiments like Landing Pages, Concierge MVP, Fakes, Wizard of Oz, etc [...]

      Too familiar for me to gain much from reading this but for anybody who doesn't do digital product design professionally, this book is a go-to resource if they need to get up to speed.

    3. Valentin Cristea on said:

      This could be a good intro book if it is your first in both Lean and UX. I was expecting a bit more being a UX-focused book but I was not impressed. "Don't make me think" makes for a much better UX book, and reading "The Lean Startup" + either Running Lean or Lean Analytics makes everything in this book intuitive.

    4. Steve on said:

      With a lively, if somewhat irreverant , tone , Laura Klein guides you through the process of starting a venture using UX as a gateway into finding a market and success. This book has pragmatic advice on what to do and how to do it now, and more importantly, what not to spend time on. Not just a concept book, this book discusses tools and detailed approaches. Klein addresses many of the concerns people might have about "skipping steps" in order to be lean, and explains the both the challenges and [...]

      Finish it within 3 days! #MONSTERKILLLaura Klein have a great and practical book. The message are so direct and had minimum example or sucess story. Lean UX are the new perspective and methodology to validate your idea, design and product immidiately and had lot of itteration. Always validate at all stages of developing process.This book teach us to research, doing validation, design a MVP, and we should build an interactive prototype for better validation process. Laura also teach us how to A/B [...]

      I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It explains UX design in the context of lean startups. It’s a great read for anyone, even if you don’t work at a startup. And it made me laugh out loud several times as I was reading. (I listen to Laura’s podcast, What is Wrong with UX, so I’m familiar with her sarcastic sense of humor.)Laura shows you how to validate hypotheses with UX tools like user research. She goes into detail about the different user research methods out there and when to use them. [...]

      Great read on the high-priority things to focus on in order to save resources while serving your users, your customers, and your business as well as possible. It says it's for "Lean Startups" and indeed it would be much easier to apply 100% quickly to an organization that already identifies itself as a Lean Startup, as getting buy-in in larger, more slow-moving organizations will be harder, but it's worth a read, even if your company is thousands people big and ships on a multi-year schedule.The [...]

    8. Kars on said:

      A ruthlessly pragmatic guide to doing user research, design and testing for non-designers in lean startup environments. I am not the book's audience, I mostly read it to validate some assumptions I made during my recent tenure as a product manager and designer at a startup, and was mostly satisfied by the end. Klein tries to spice up what would otherwise be rather dry material with a somewhat flippant tone of voice. It didn't always work for me. For people seeking advice on how to do design outs [...]

    9. M. on said:

      This book was hilarious, smart, and insightful. Klein does an excellent job of explaining both "what" and "why", and it makes for a very convincing book. I wish every company worked like this. Also I want to work with her now.

    10. Leisa Michelle on said:

      Great introduction for people who don't really know much about UX Design. It was well written, pretty funny, and valuable. Only downside for me was that it seemed a little bit repetitive. Still worth the read though!The introduction of the book talked about what Lean UX is and isn’t. It was compared to Agile Design and User-Centered Design, which meant nothing to me, to be honest. The actual definition was irrelevant to why I was reading this book - I care more about the practice and benefits [...]

    11. Jordan on said:

      Decent book with sensible advice - I'd call it a strong 3 / 5.Main points were:* test your ideas early and continuously - qualitatively (user interviews & observation) for open-ended questions - quantitatively (A/B testing) for well-formed either-or questions* prototype early and add incrementallyOnly two things I think could have been improved:* felt very repetitive to me* the tone didn't help me respect the material (but maybe I'm just old school?) a little "flippant", and sort of preempti [...]

    12. Sergio Flores Niklitschek on said:

      Un libro que habla sobre metodologías para diseño ágil de productos. La esencia de la metodología es validar las hipótesis con indicadores de experiencia de los usuarios para ver si las nuevas ideas de diseño valen la pena o no.Me parece que el libro es útil, y después se pone demasiado repetitivo, pero vale la pena aprender de él.

    13. Ginc Zivers on said:

      I had much fun reading this book Laura Klein is not only good UX designer, she also writes hellova fun and entertaining. This book is for all designers and product owners, entrepreneurs or anyone actually having some product and wanting to make it successful. She goes into details about analytics and testing side of UX and how to implement any ne iteration. A must read.

    14. Jay Yeo on said:

      Nothing extremely original if you've been reading up on agile and user-centered design. But there's a couple of decent takeaways:Find out what users say they want, and the motivation behind it, in order to build what they really want. Create hypotheses and test them.You don't need to test with a statistically significant number of people each time, because obvious problems surface after about 5 people and the rest is wastage.A/B testing helps you optimise your results for variations on a specifi [...]

    15. Johnny Graber on said:

      UX for Lean Startups is a good read for everyone interested in UX. I especially liked the ideas on experimenting with a few users to get a qualitative feedback on how your design works. And the best is that you can get that kind of feedback for the price of a few cups of coffee. The first part on analytics covered all I had expected from Lean Analytics in the same series by O'Reilly. Therefore UX for Lean Startups is a great replacement for Lean Analytics.However, I didn’t like the writing sty [...]

    16. Milele on said:

      I loved Laura's book. As I read it I kept on putting it down thinking "I need to put this down and go follow her advice IMMEDIATELY" and then I would pick it up because I wanted to learn more and hear more of her voice. Since I know Laura I could hear her voice advising, explaining, and gently mocking commonly-held falsehoods. The tone combines with the topic matter to break down pre-conceptions, to convince and teach. Laura's advice is incredibly practical. Having just been through a startup I [...]

    17. David on said:

      Great book on UX Design aspect of Lean Start Up concept. Very tactical with good advice on how to integrate user research (which was why I got the book). I must admit, convincing the client of user research is not easy. The clients (internal or external) are so ingrained in build-to-spec paradigm, whole premise of user research (i.e define the spec as we build) is very unsettling. Outcome-based crowd (e.g strategy work) gets the hypothesis aspect, but struggling with not being able to drive to a [...]

    18. Alice on said:

      I have more or less 3 months experience with UX and I am surely not a graphic. That said, this book has been one of the most useful work-related reads I have had in the last couple of years: it's easy but not simplified, it covers the three main themes I wish I had known three months ago and it's funny. Kudos to Mrs (Ms?) Klein for her style, I wish mine was more similar to hers. And really, if you think you don't need this because you are not a UX designer you are so wrong and you understood ze [...]

    19. Shi Jieming on said:

      The book extends the Lean Startup concept from the prospective of UX and provides meaningful guidances, e.g asking why before starting to fulfill user suggestions, always iterating, Lean lifecycle v.s. waterfall lifecycle. The core of the book follows the Lean concept structure. I believe the book can be LEANed from 200 pages to 50 pages by avoiding the lengthy language and bad jokes. I recommend that the book worths BRIEFLY reading and can be a reference book to read from time to time.

    20. Dani Nordin on said:

      A great read, although as with most books on Lean, it focuses heavily on new product development. As someone working in Lean/Agile environments that often have existing legacy products, it would be really useful to incorporate ways to use these principles with embedded teams.

    21. Luke Tucker on said:

      Some good quick content pieces. The last chapter has the most value, I'd go there. I heard Laura talk at the Lean Startup conf in 2014, she was a great speaker. She has a unique personality and writes a little quirky - not my favorite. Decent tidbits.

    22. Davi Bauer on said:

      Very good book. It reinforces the importance to use the design to validate hypothesis. Also, the book talks about qualitative and quantitative metrics. One of the main ideas is use the design as a way to ask questions and measure them through those metrics.

    23. Miles Wen on said:

      The author systematically led readers into the fundamentals of UX and product design, which is great. I particularly like the parts about how to conduct qualitative user studies. However, chapters on quantitative user studies are too shallow to be useful.

    24. Erin on said:

      Excellent, practical advice for anyone engaged in product design and Lean design. It's written for software, but a lot of this book is fantastic product design device that can be applied more broadly.I read a lot of while waiting in line for things, and loved the irreverent sense of humor.

    25. Gena on said:

      Fantastic read. Laura Klein provides easy to follow and very practical approach to UX design & research.

    26. AJ on said:

      Great book for anyone who works in software and/or software products.

    27. Amr Salah on said:

      Awesome approach to how to design any ux, from start till the end
