Passion in Action

Lean Startup: the art to be entrepreneurial is the first Politecnico course organized in collaboration with a student association, Entrepreneurship Club Polimi. The course is organized by students, for students.

The objective of the course is to introduce the students to the so-called "entrepreneurial mentality": a way of reasoning that typically belongs to the startup world, but that can be employed whatever career they will pursue.

In the course, we will give you the basic tools to create a startup: how to protect your business idea and understand if it is good, how to design an effective presentation, and how to raise funds for your idea. The lessons are held by important players of the Italian startup ecosystem such as PoliHub, Plug and Play, and Techstars.

The course is held in Italian.

Lean was born out of manufacturing practices but in recent time has transformed the world of knowledge work and management. It encourages the practice of continuous improvement and is based on the fundamental idea of respect for people. Womack and Jones defined the five principles of Lean manufacturing in their book “The Machine That Changed the World”. The five principles are considered a recipe for improving workplace efficiency and include: 1) defining value, 2) mapping the value stream, 3) creating flow, 4) using a pull system, and 5) pursuing perfection. The next sections provides a detailed overview of each principle.
