Post-Lean Innovation for Mature Firms:
Learning to Disrupt before you are Disrupted

September 22, 2015 – Webinar

10:00 Pacific Time / 13:00 Eastern Time / 19:00 Central European Time

Overview

Exponential technologies are disrupting industries and setting the stage for a new Golden Age in entrepreneurship. But while these developments are exciting for entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, they pose very serious challenges for leaders of mature firms. The assumptions they have made about how their industry works are being undermined. Many of these firms are stuck with legacy assets, business models and technologies. As a result they are vulnerable to merciless disruption by new entrants leveraging new technologies and more capital-efficient business models.

In this webinar we will discuss how mature firms evolved into the pyramid shape they have today and how leaders can reshape them and retain innovative employees who in turn will build disruptive businesses.

You will learn about:

  • how exponential technologies sneak up on mature firms
  • how exponential technologies affect organizational structure
  • why traditional Lean as well as Lean Startup are insufficient to handle exponential changes
  • key characteristics of the emerging Post-Lean Era
  • specific innovation strategies for building disruptive ventures
  • Value Stacks™, a powerful way to discover the “food chain” in your industry
