Kelly McAdoo  |  City of Hayward, California  |  @McAdooKelly

Kelly McAdoo shares the story of how the City of Hayward, California has applied Lean Startup to improve resident satisfaction, empower employees, and prioritize scarce resources while also providing the ability to measure the impact of their actions on the community.
