The Lean Enterprise: Innovation Strategy and Structure for the Enterprise Context

During our Breakfast Seminar with Owens you will learn how large companies can capitalize on the startup movement happening right outside their doors. He will present a framework for companies to create an environment that empowers the greatest entrepreneurial talent to thrive inside the organization, retaining the greatest innovative minds and reaping the benefits of their greatest inventions. In order to harness disruptive innovation, large organizations need to understand the rules of disruption and completely rethink how they motivate and compensate employees. Most innovation talks focus on processes for incremental innovations—not this one.

More and more large organizations today face the Innovator's Dilemma (a term coined by Clayton Christensen in his book by the same title) and are striving to implement new practices that help them keep up with the rapid pace of technological change. Owens’ workshops and keynotes focus on a highly pragmatic approach to innovation, with specific techniques, timetables, compensation structures and financial investments required to innovate in an enterprise context. His practices are illustrated further through case studies and interviews that indicate real-world examples in large enterprises.

"Owens shows us how corporations can leverage lean startup methods to drive innovation."
Professor Eisenmann, Harvard Business School
