To be successful, a new startup must use its resources wisely. Determining the most efficient use of resources can sometimes be hard. Fortunately, there are two frameworks entrepreneurs can use to help them:  The Lean Methodology and the Agile Approach.

On Tuesday, January 17 at 8:00 a.m. (1300 UTC), learn how these frameworks can help you answer such questions as: Should I build this new product or service? Will I be able to make money with this product?  How do I prioritize tasks?  Our two GIST Gurus, Ray and Melissa, will explain what these frameworks are how they can help you make strategic decisions for your startup.
