Lean Enterprise Talk

Meet the co-author of Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organizations Scale.

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 co-author of Lean Enterprise Barry O’Reilly and local ThoughtWorker Rouan Wilsenach. They will 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.
