Beyond Experiment: Aligning Innovation With Corporate Strategy
The Lean Startup toolbox is great for taking innovative products from idea to scale. However, within large companies, our innovative products are developed within a broader context. The ultimate goal of innovation is to help the company achieve long-term success and meet its strategic goals. This talk explores how intrapreneurs can take innovation beyond running experiments and ensure that their work is aligned to corporate strategy. Such alignment can help avoid our innovation projects becoming ‘orphans’ with no company support for scaling. The notion of an innovation thesis to guide innovation with large companies will be presented along with examples and case studies.
