Thriving in Chaos: Becoming a 10X Product Leader with Lean-Agile Techniques – Johnson

Evaluate Session

Learn how to lead in chaotic times and achieve truly unrivaled success. James Collins and his team at Harvard studied companies that achieved 10X growth in tough economic conditions. As a follow on to “Good to Great,” James Collins describes these companies as being “Great by Choice” because their recipe for success worked in any condition, from startups to disruptive company turnarounds.  The result was a description of what makes a “10X” leader – including fanatical discipline, empirical creativity, productive paranoia, and level 5 ambition.  This presentation explores HOW you can actually implement these behaviors as a Lean-Agile leader to deliver Products that achieve 10X returns.
