18 lessons learned during the 6 year roller-coaster ride called Mendix
Last week I gave a talk about the lessons learned during the exponential growth of our company the last six years. I was invited to to talk at the Appsterdam meetup in Delft about “growing pains”. In other words: what lessons did we learn when our company grew from 3 to 100 employees. I enjoyed the preparations as much as the actual talk, as it forced me to step back and think about the things we did and did not last years.
I covered lessons learned in four categories: company, culture, product development, and product evolution. Attempting to cover all these subject automatically means that you stay at a high level. However, I think I was able to share some valuable experiences from the trenches. It will be interesting to dive deeper in the separate categories in the future!
Do you recognize these lessons? What are your most important lessons learned? If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask them in the comments!
