In the elaboration of MVP for experimentation, it is important to identify a key metric that will tell us if the assumptions in our hypotheses are valid. Alistair Croll and Benjamin Yoskovitz, the authors of Lean Analytics (O’Reilly), introduced the concept of the One Metric that Matters — OMTM, for short. The OMTM is a […]

MVP and the One Metric That Matters
A fórmula da eficácia por Alisson Vale
Imagine o Michael Phelps se encontrar com um amigo que também gosta de natação. E perceber que seu amigo vai conquistar muitas medalhas e que seu estilo vai levá-lo ainda mais longe do que o próprio Phelps chegou. Todos os dias eu comemoro e agradeço o sucesso do livro Lean Inception. Mas, hoje, eu […]

But Is It Really a Tech Firm?
There are lots of executives who would have you believe that the business they run is really a tech business. With tech firm valuations still at sky-high levels, it's easy to understand why. Tech commands a premium valuation because (a) the potential for non-linear growth relative to investment; (b) low barriers to entry into adjacent markets amplifies that growth; (c) scale of offerings changes the commercial model from transactional to flat-fee subscription, making a tech firm an unregulated utility; (d) payments take place behind-the-scenes of the tech consumption, creating sustainable recurring revenue; and (e) tech industries tend to be winner-take-all.
