      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    This Eric Ries bestseller is an elaboration of his famous business concept called Lean Startup. The Lean Startup: How Constant Innovation Creates Radically Successful Businesses, like the hypothesis, intends to revolutionize ways in which new companies are built and their businesses function.

    Summary Of The Book

    The world witnesses a number of people zealously starting their own businesses everyday. Some of them are even backed by the greatest ideas and commendable expertise. But in spite of such enthusiasts putting their sweat and blood into their dream projects, the world also witnesses everyday, a mighty big fraction of such businesses falling apart. What goes wrong in so many cases and what could save such fresh ventures is quite a challenging question. To answer this and to provide a safety net for all those determined to make their own startups work, Eric Ries writes this book, The Lean Startup: How Constant Innovation Creates Radically Successful Businesses.

    Inspired by the Japanese and their Lean Manufacturing concept, Ries coined this ingenious business concept in 2011. It gradually became a movement in itself and is now recognized as a modern and scientific approach to build lucrative new businesses and equip them for lasting success. In this book, Ries brings together all the valuable insights he gained from launching and working with several startups himself.

    The elementary philosophy presented in the book encourages entrepreneurs to eliminate steps and processes that do not add value to their system or clients. It introduces innovative ideas such as Validated Learning, Iterative Product Releases, Minimum Viable Product, and Continuous Deployment. Besides analyzing the reasons for premature failure of startups, it also examines ways in which new companies can considerably benefit from Validated Learning and cut down on the huge initial investments.

    Ries also emphasizes on making companies capital efficient and enabling effective channelization of human creativity. He writes about getting rid of expensive overheads and fancy metrics in order to better focus on intuitively designing and launching products that customers really need. He even points out the importance of identifying and fostering creative business habits that contribute to the success of any business. The book unfolds the ways to entrepreneurial success that lie above and beyond lengthy business plans and boardroom meetings.

    First published in the year 2011, The Lean Startup: How Constant Innovation Creates Radically Successful Businesses became a New York Times Bestseller.

    Introduces some interesting tools, but don't expect concrete answers here

    The book did a good job of introducing certain concepts such as MVP and concepts from Lean Manufacturing. Most of the examples covered in the book are from the software/web startup scene. How the concepts introduced in the book, when applied to certain core engineering fields are any different from existing techniques is still not very clear.

    Must read before if you like working in a startup.

    I never understood LEAN before reading this book. It explains clearly why the out-dated water flow model must be replaced by LEAN principles. The flow to be frank is not that great. You might feel a bit dull in between but it will save your time for sure. Also the author explains everything based on examples which is something very interesting. Must read

    For The Over Confident People

    I guess the first 30 odd pages are more than enough to get Eric's points across strongly. If you are an entrepreneur, do yourself a favour. Buy this and you would regret why you did not come across this book a little earlier.
