Our business model workshops and working sessions provide a structured approach and common language for evaluating new ideas.


We partner with you to test and validate product concepts using rapid prototyping and other lean product development principles.


We use an agile and user centric approach to development, ensuring not only a well built system, but one users will actually adopt!

"LeanCog invigorated our product development process with its feedback-driven, test-based methodology... Their blend of strategic knowledge and technical expertise helped us seamlessly transition from product concept to workable solution. Their work has permeated into other areas of the organization and helped us win new business. This was the best money I've spent on rapidly prototyping a new product concept."
