Global Product Management Talk On Indigenous Principles For Corporate Change
Most commonly in the the startup environment, we expend enormous energy birthing a vision to life. There is so much on a tactical level required to bring our ideas to fruition that culture tends to be viewed as something that we'll get to later on down the road. Yet, the single most powerful way to birth a vision with impact is to focus on culture from the very beginning.
Glenn says, "Anytime we hold conversations about how we can birth new ideas into life, the more we can engender a focus on culture the more new ideas will come forward with verve and impact."
