Combined with our experience of change management we are well positioned to help your company to adopt and scale entrepreneurial and agile ways of working. Together we can accelerate innovation and create long-term sustainable growth.

We provide proven tools and methods to accelerate innovation

We provide proven tools and apply the mindset and methodologies of Lean Startup and Design Thinking to reduce the risk and time to introduce new products and services to the market.

Our focus is on maximizing customer value, not billing the maximum number of hours. - Andy Cars

We specialize in searching for new business models

Lean Ventures specializes in working with large companies to search for and develop new business models and making this as systematic and actionable as executing on the core business. We call this venturing.

We believe that it's imperative for the long-term survival of companies to aim for a balanced portfolio that not only covers the core business but also reaches across to include venturing.

Every organization - not just business - needs one core competence: Innovation.  - Peter Drucker
