Opportunities and new markets appear unpredictably, and reacting to them quickly and aggressively is more important than ever for large enterprises. The monolithic nature of the enterprise, however, is quite often directly at odds with the notions of innovation and the lean methodology. For the leaders of such enterprises, a complete rethinking of strategy is in order.

Enter The Lean Enterprise, which provides enterprise leaders a detailed examination of the motivations that drive innovative individuals and the support structures they need to deliver breakthrough products and services within an enterprise context. More notably, the book points out examples of the many failures of corporate leadership to empower the very innovators within their walls. Spectacularly successful startups, such as Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram were founded after corporate employees became fed up with the stifling nature of corporate bureaucracy and decided it was easier, and more profitable, to venture out on their own.

With the largest organizations in the world taking note of the obvious advantages of the lean approach, it is only a matter of time before enterprises level the innovation playing field. The Lean Enterprise: How Corporations Can Innovate Like Startups shows you how to unlock the hidden potential within your organization, today.

  • I love this presentation. It speaks to the the many truths about innovation in the workplace. Being inside government, I always find it amusing that we claim to want to be innovative yet we never enable our employees to get out there and 'own' their projects. Will share with my department for sure!

    Thanks for posting!
