Lean Enterprise Exclusive Book Tour

Meet the authors of Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organizations Scale in a city near you.

By 2025, 75% of the companies in S&P 500 will be replaced. In 1960, the average lifespan of a company on the list was 61 years. In 1980, it was 25 years.

Today, it’s 18.

The pace of change is accelerating. Organizations must continually revisit the question, "What businesses are we in, and how can we organize to maximize our long-term potential?"

Find out how you can lead in the era of disruption with the authors of Lean Enterprise. Barry O’Reilly and Joanne Molesky share pragmatic strategies on navigating the most troublesome and counterintuitive aspects of scaling innovation. Gain insights into processes, portfolio and financial management practices, and organizational design and culture that will help you unleash innovation. 

This is an exclusive executive event, and space is limited. Reserve your spot today, and we'll confirm your registration.
