Lean Enterprise Book Tour: North America and Europe
Today Joanne and I commence a three week series of events in North America and Europe to support the launch of our book with Jez, Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organization Innovate At Scale.
The response to the book has been fantastic. Thanks to everyone that has taken the time to write a review on Amazon or O’Reilly Media. If haven’t already, please add your thoughts too — we thrive on feedback!
The purpose of this series is to engage business leaders in discussing the topics covered in the book, along with how you can start to implement them in your own organizations.
By 2025, 75% of the companies in S&P 500 will be replaced. In 1960, the average lifespan of a company on the list was 61 years. In 1980, it was 25 years. Today, it’s 18.
The pace of change is accelerating. Organizations must continually revisit the question, “What businesses are we in, and how can we organize to maximize our long-term potential?”
We’ll show how you can lead in the era of disruption by sharing pragmatic strategies on navigating the most troublesome and counterintuitive aspects of scaling innovation. Gain insights into processes, portfolio and financial management practices, and organizational design and culture that will help you unleash innovation in the enterprise.
This is an exclusive executive event, and space is limited. Reserve your spot today, and we’ll confirm your registration.

Why do some leaders and teams achieve great success in complex, uncertain, and fast-changing environments, while others who are equally capable struggle? For example, earlier this year, I found myself in a room with the heads of various competing departments of a large, bureaucratic organization. They had been tasked with the development of a new […]
I’ve been watching the outstanding HBO series Chernobyl which details the worst nuclear reactor meltdown in human history—an event that was approximately 400 times more potent than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. What occurred to me, and what I discovered over the course of the TV series, this was a cataphoric failure destined to […]
Nikolay Storonsky, CEO of the UK’s hottest fintech startup Revolut, has been extremely vocal about his company’s values. “Ninety-five per cent of founders, they will bullshit you,” he told the Financial Times. “I’m not going to do it.” Storonsky says, “I can’t see how work-life balance will help you to build a startup. You are […]
