Concept

Do you know how some of the most successful products and businesses nowadays came to be? Through the Lean Startup approach. If you have not heard of it, this innovative methodology nurtures problem-solving, traditionally in product development, by following an agile, circular workflow.​

The Lean Startup formula: Idea – Prototype – Test – Measure (and repeat)

This formula promotes repeated, quick tests to validate the value of an idea. Instead of developing a full-blown product, service, etc. you create a basic prototype and test it in the market. Based on these tests, the product continues its development according to the initial idea or pivots in line with the feedback from the testers. 

With that being said, in a world of more than 7 billion mobile devices and more than 40 percent of all Internet traffic driven by them, fewer than 20 percent of companies implement digital in their HR and employee activities. 

Digital innovation in HR is still up for grabs. Change International and Lean Digital Solutions have recognized this industry gap and are here to help you be among the pioneers who fill it by providing you a two-fold innovative event.

Showcase the practice of the Lean Startup approach. Thus, you’ll be provided with an educational experience that you can bring back to your organizations.​
Crowdsource main challenges HR is facing and with your input develop a prototype for a digital product that will help resolve one of these challenges.
