    I originally first learned about Ramli and his work from reading his fantastic blog posts, http://ramlijohn.com/. He has now become a friend and a trusted colleague, one of the people in my inner circle of Lean Startup advisers I look to when I need perspective.

    Take the time to get help from Ramli - you'll be smarter and enriched.

    I was at my wit's end in the customer development stage for my company, when Ramli came to the rescue. He took a call on short notice to run over our customer dev process together. He was generous in linking to additional reading material, and providing referrals to others who could help us.

    Most of the time, when I ask business coaches/advisors, I get vague answers to even the most targeted questions, but Ramli was quick to mention 3 key metrics (% expected conversion rate, # weeks involved, time it takes for each interview) that helped set our expectations for the next month at our company.

  • Sanjatourani
    Sanjay Tourani,

    Ramli was incredibly useful in providing advice on what exactly I should focus on with regard to a MVP. As somebody with a technical background, he understood fully well the temptation that an engineer like myself has when it comes to just building things, but he made me understand how coding/building the product is far from the being the most important thing when it comes to a MVP. I would highly recommend talking with Ramli if you have any questions about your startup, lean principles, MVP or just in general!

He walk me through the logic of creating a hypothesis, how to test it, and a different ways to get your idea validated.

This call has been more than useful for me. If anyone is thinking about doing a customer development, especially how to validate your product/service quickly, what is the purpose of your cust dev effort, I suggest you talk to Ramli beforehand.
