1. ‘Lean startup’ is the panacea against company failure
A company is a machine. One faulty part can destroy the whole thing even if the rest are working fine. The main one is the mismanagement of resources. One may follow the lean methodology to the T but if they spend more time & money than necessary then the company will fail (this includes mistiming the pivot). The lean methodology helps to weed out bad ideas with no market support and to reduce some of the uncertainty associated with building a new product.
