We (Mark Swets and Tim Schipper) have written a book (Innovative Lean Development) which is about applying learning cycles and lean principles to the discovery process in Product and IT Development. Our intent is to apply learning cycles to learn about blogging. Learning cycles are rapid bursts of learning to accelerate the development of something new and innovative. They can be applied to create new solutions, services, products, business models, etc. The intent of learning cycles is to speed up the discovery process. Since blogging is a new area for us, we thought, “Hey, why not apply learning cycles to the development of our own blog.”
So this is the start of our journey. For the initial series of entries, we are going to write about learning cycles and how we are using them to learn how to blog. We hope you find it interesting and valuable, and we are interested in your thoughts and ideas.
