... and we covered the 4 metrics to “see the forest but the trees” at play at each stage of your lifecycle.
Now, at this point you're probably thinking that's all great but now you've got 2 big hurdles ahead of you …
This is where Lean-Case comes in and this is why I started this company.
Lean-Case takes care of creating high quality business plan for you and – if you want - we can handle all the leg work from end to end.
As I said, Lean-Case eliminates those 2 bottlenecks when it comes to assembling and presenting your business case.
Our service allows you to set up a customer lifecycle business plan including all the key metrics and dashboard in a few hours and share the dashboard with peers, investors, or your board.
If you need our help, we can do the job on your behalf from end to end – creating and discussing or validating the business case with you.
Now, let me briefly reiterate why your business needs a plan based on customer lifecycle model.
Whether pitching your startup to investors, presenting your project to your manager, managing your sales forecast or simply testing a new business idea, you'll need to be able to answer the 3 essential questions and understand the impact of changes.
