How can I improve the rate at which as a startup a group of 3 people get things done?
We are a group of 3, and have a few web apps that run in a mostly automated fashion. But improving on these products in order to build in features and generate exposure to hit the tipping points of success is taking us a very long time.
We have a clear vision and direction, and are readily implementing lean startup principles, but we dont have the funds or cashflow to take on more staff.
In attempting to solve this problem I have read and tried to implement what I have learnt from the following books:
- The Goal, Elihayu Goldratt
- One Minute Manager, Kenneth Blanchard
- One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey, Ken Blanchard
- Lean Startup, Eric Reis
It seems the problem we're facing is quite similar to a post at Joel on Software/Business of Software.
