Big companies aren’t like startups — they’re like dozens of small companies, each with existing products, customer relationships, and established processes. But that doesn’t mean Lean change can’t happen. Lean Startup advisor, speaker, and mentor Cindy Alvarez will talk about what has (and hasn’t) worked to drive change within big enterprises. As a current Microsoft leader (and a long-time startup veteran), Cindy knows the right balance of skunkworks and reassurance to foster experiment-driven cultures. In this webcast you’ll learn:
• Getting people to think problem first, not solution
• What NOT to say when you’re pushing for change
• Scrappy ways to settle product (and culture) debates without HiPPO input
