The Lean BA, Inc. is a Boston-based startup with a mission to improve the understanding and communication of customer needs as a science and technology. We introduced "The Needs App" for SharePoint 2013 becasue we believe that organizations, partnerships and markets, of our customers, have become increasingly complex. At the same time, the tools, methods and systems for understanding the problems and needs of customers is continuously constrained by past practices, methods and tools. These practices or services are sold by mature markets of consulting services and tools built on mature but restrictive technologies, making change difficult until now.
We didn't invent the business needs assessment we just invented simplifying it. We don't think it should be difficult to understand and agree on a customer's needs and problems even in complex organizations.
Introducing "The Needs App", simply plug it into a SharePoint 2013 site and step through our simple process: People paint the picture to get results as a 3 steps.
