Episode #7 - a culture called The Lean Startup with Bob van Luijt (26m)

The Lean Startup, a methodology for developing products and businesses using short cycles of build-measure-learn to continuously improve. That's probably the crispiest definition one can provide but what impact does this have on products, on businesses, and more so on the culture of an organisation? A startup may embrace this methodology on day one of its conception and not even realise how its culture gets moulded by it, however more mature organisations who wish to realise the benefits of this methodology do witness a cultural change, sometimes not very successful ones. So it only seemed fair to speak with someone like Bob van Luijt, the CEO & Co-founder of SeMI Technologies, who's witnessed this multiple times. His current startup provides a solution called Weaviate which is a Semantic Search Engine with built-in Machine Learning to search through Unstructured Data and this is used by huge organisations for building, for example - their Knowledge Graphs. It was fascinating for me to understand from him how one can balance out cultural differences when working in a space like his and hopefully you and find it just as intersting as I did. I'm your host Vishal Prasad and this is EnterpriseJoy, educating organisations to be awesome!
