A Mentor Capitalist in Silicon Valley, I advise startups and corporations on building features, products and businesses that matter.
Workshops are great way to level up your teams on the latest innovation techniques being used by the brightest in Silicon Valley.
In this one day workshop for cross functional teams, I cover the history and principles of lean while sharing case studies of corporations applying lean to new product development. We get hands-on by creating value propositions, hypotheses and experiments. By the end of the day, teams have a solid understanding of how to apply these tools and techniques to new products and features.
In this one day workshop, I work with leaders in all levels of the organization to debunk the myths around heroic leadership. We apply complexity thinking, powerful questions and environment design to create actionable experiments for embracing antiheroic leadership. An optional mentorship check-in program is available to ensure attendees are practicing their new skills.
Beyond the workshop experience, teams need the right advice at the right time.
Teams get stuck applying lean to their daily work and have no one to turn to inside the organization for help. I've successfully coached teams across several different verticals at different stages of development. Whether it's sustaining or disruptive innovation, at a product or feature level, I'll get your team on track.
Beyond the team level, what's the plan for keeping your teams aligned to a strategic initiative or vision? Without a strategy in place, your experimentation will not have the lasting, meaningful impact on your business. I've advised many organizations on clarifying their strategy and measuring progress toward an end goal.
Inspirational keynotes are an important part of energizing your organization and getting them excited about a new way of working.
If your organization or conference is in need of an engaging speaker, I also share my insights and case studies for those interested in learning about lean. These talks can be either remote or in-person.
