About the course
This course is an integral part of the EWOR journey and is meant to equip you with lean validation techniques that ensure you have validated your idea before building your product. Prior to this course, you should have already synthesised a customer need and selected an idea that addresses it accordingly. While the first course was to validate the customer need itself, this course validates whether your idea is valid to address your customer need.
