  1. 1. CYCLESA “hands-in” introduction to The simplest, proven way to build your business. Speaker | Bryan Cassady A “hands-on” introduction to the ABCs of Innovation Also Included: A DRAFT copy of the Cycles Toolkit
  2. 2. Scaling up is hard work and deadly if done wrong (70% of companies fail at the scale up phase) Tonight a new, simplified way to improve this process
  3. 3. About Me • 10 Start-ups in 6 countries (8 winners, 1 loser, 1 unknown) • As a consultant, dozens of scale-ups • Lecturer : KU Leuven , Solvay • Director Founder Institute/ Inacademy • My work is to help people in small and larger companies build the companies of their dreams 3 Beliefs 1. Good entrepreneurs learn to accept risk, great entrepreneurs learn to manage risk 2. The best way to manage risk is to be systematic 3. Almost any learning system is better than no system
  4. 4. What I see… (at companies of all sizes) 1. An incredible focus on the positive 2. A continual search for silver bullets 3. Scared to ask for help 4. If they ask, too much done internally 5. What they want to do lacks clarity / focus 6. Lack of systems / Lack of urgency 7. Avoid tough decisions and stay in a business too long Deluded Scared of Negative Alone Unclear Lacking Systems Not Making Decisions
  5. 5. Our agenda tonight, a solution… A = Alignment on needs / Ask for help B = Build ideas C = Communicate and Check S = Systems for growth We’ll try to apply them to one of my “soft spot” companies And then I will share some “dirty secrets”
  6. 6. Tools/ Tricks A pre-filled “True North” card 7 Ps card and feedback form One of dozens of tools to stimulate creativity And the energy of all of you…
  7. 7. Do systems/ processes matter ? If you have real product market fit and momentum you can (but probably won’t) succeed without systems and processes. The reality is most successful companies have hit the wall many times and pivoted their way to success. Processes / systems increase your odds of getting the pivots right and on time
  8. 8. A test… Who are these companies today? Personal podcasting and sharing audio content
  9. 9. Lean Start Up How many of my clients interpret this: Build, measure, learn Build, measure, learn Build, measure, learn Pivot to a Miracle. I believe Miracles seldom happen idea are built over time “Step by Step”.
  10. 10. Based on 2 years of research with over 300 companies There are companies that succeed and companies that fail. The biggest difference between winners and losers is smart winners make good, even mediocre, ideas great over time. The Reality… Quality Of Ideas Time Start Learning Cycles No Changes Bad Cycles Smart Winners Lucky Winners Losers Losers
  11. 11. Cycles: The ABC’s Of Growth. Cycle 1 Cycle 2 Cycle 3 Cycle 4 Cycle 5 Align/Ask Build Communicate Check Systematically Improve Idea Quality Time
  12. 12. The Mental state you need • Humility... know you will get it wrong • Vulnerability to ask for help/ to say you don’t know • Get lots of feedback • Learn and move on
  13. 13. Systems are the solution… Every system is perfectly designed to get the results it gets. W. Edwards Deming
  14. 14. A simple idea… Many forms The Demming Cycle • Design Thinking • Scrum • The Innovators Method • Innovation Engineering
  15. 15. Design Thinking U N D E R S T A N D E X P L O R E M A T E R I A L I Z E Empathize Define Ideate Prototype Test Implement

  22. 22. There is a BIG question you need to ask again and again. What is the biggest problem (death threat) that needs to be resolved ? Killer Death Threat A Learning Cycle Manageable Problems To reduce risk
  23. 23. SNARC Case study
  24. 24. SNARC A Semantic Social News Aggregator SNARC, When you want to know more SNARC helps discovering content by highlighting what is meaningful in a quick, smart and personalized manner. SNARC finds relevant content by learning from the content, the social web and you! 3 people with PHDs in Semantic Search / 2 start up experts and 500K to build their business

We are best in class We have 15,000 downloads this week Our server response time is down to .8 seconds We were listed in TechCrunch last week Success is on the way An “Oh so typical” scale- up We build something great, profits will follow. 80% product development 10% getting new users 5% finding a business model 5% other ________________________ 100%
  27. 27. 2 types of entrepreneurs 1. Risk takers (they like the macho bit) 2. Risk reducers (they like getting house odds) • A risk reducing entrepreneur will build a strategy that increases odds of success from • 10% • to 20% • to 50%
  28. 28. How… by asking again and again “If this business fails, why would it fail ?” “If this business fails, why would it fail ?” “If this business fails, why would it fail ?” Then finding answers

  32. 32. 5 Whys Why is no one paying for our service ? We never asked anyone to pay Why have we never asked anyone ? We haven’t found a pain someone is willing to pay to resolve Why no pain to resolve ? We haven’t focused on a specific segment yet Why no segment yet We have spent too much time at our desk Why too much time at our desk We are scared to meet clients because we don’t have ideas to sell We need ideas for things we can sell
  33. 33. Personally, I find nothing sadder than a CEO with a big team working alone on all the big problems…
  34. 34. TRUE Truly Simple Let's get paid N Narrative. Why it is important (the story) If we can't find a way to get people to pay for our service, we have no business regardless of how great our technology is, how many people download our product or how useful it is. O Objective 3 ideas to make money that we can test R Restrictions: We are not interested in A fee for use of the plug-in People will not pay T Tactical Constraints: We have around 250 K to grow the business, so the solutions need to be low cost. AND we need to work with partners H Here is the place to start Look at areas where the of Information value is high and searching takes time (eg Job applicants, News stories, etc° Make it a story Be honest Be specific Ask for help TRUE N.O.R.T.H = A way to ask for help..

  76. 76. Build Ideas B Once you know what you want to do it is time to build ideas that have a chance to deliver on your objectives. Contrary to the belief that the ability to build ideas is limited to a select few, there are tools, techniques that can help any team build better ideas. These tools are: 1. Effectuation (looking for ideas at home with the resources you have) 2. Systematic search for stimulus (get out of the 3. Diversity and willingness to bring in new people/resources. With these tools and techniques the process is clear, but clear does not mean easy. Removal of fear and an ongoing action focus is the “secret sauce” that can pull everything together.

To get effective feedback you need to be able to explain your ideas clearly, really listen (listening is not just hearing!), slow down to make sure you are on the right path and most importantly be ready to kill bad ideas. Deliverable: Do people understand the idea, what do they think of the idea, are we making progress. If there is no good hope of progress, kill the idea

  83. 83. www.cyclesbook.com Cycles Systems S A lot of research has shown that systems are the key to innovation success. Systems are made up of interrelated components of people and processes with a clearly defined, shared destination or goal. Systems work best when everyone shares an understanding and commitment to the aim or purpose of the system. The foundations are clarity and a commitment to learn, and improve. Great companies have 3 characteristics that set them apart from the rest. These characteristics are: 1. An ability to see and build on strengths 2. A commitment to build innovation eco-systems and 3. A commitment to ongoing action Deliverable: Simplifying the challenges, structuring the learning process, getting better internally and in your eco-system. Enough information to update your objectives and start another cycle.
