Lean Inception Training

How to build the right product and guide your team to great success?


Based on the best-selling book Lean Inception: How to Align People and Build the Right Product, a method designed by Paulo Caroli, Lean Inception is a collaborative workshop that will help you align a group of people on the solution to be built.

Lean Inception is the effective combination of Design Thinking and Lean StartUp to decide the Minimum Viable Product (MVP). It is a workshop divided into several steps and activities that will guide the team in building the right product. 

Come and join the Lean Inception training by the Lean Inception author.

The Lean Inception book — a best-seller at Amazon.com.br — (and method) was born and have been growing in Brazil since 2011. From 2000 to 2008 Paulo has lived at Silicon Valley, where he was an early adopter of Agile, Lean StartUp and Design Thinking, the major influencers for Lean Inception. In 2019 Paulo moved to Europe and, along with other Lean Inception experienced facilitators,  has been sharing about it worldwide. Lean Inception has helped many Brazilian agile teams and companies to align people build the right product, effectively combining Design Thinking and Lean StartUp.

Paulo Caroli has facilitated more that 400 Lean Inceptions, he was been the keynote speaker on the major Brazilian conferences on the past years, and the Lean Inception book training has been delivered to more than 6000 satisfied people (NPS average of 9,32).

What are people saying about this training?

Lean Inception has become one of my favorites tools to bring alignment in a team when starting a new project, not only because of it effectiveness, but also due to its simplicity and focus on team empowerment. The training is very hands-on, actively engaging with the participants and successfully showing many different situations you may experience during the inception. Be ready to participate!
