Presentation: Enterprise Just Got Entrepreneurial

Track: Post-Agile / Time: Tuesday 13:20 - 14:10 / Location: Administratiezaal

The acceleration of change impacts technology, consumer expectations and economic models. The lifespan of companies is tumbling, from a 67 year average in the 1920s to 15 years today.

Are you responding? How? Organization wide transformation programs that loose momentum and slowly die? Innovation Labs that never produce or deliver? Training courses to certify teams in the next great method? Talking a lot of theory, yet showing next to no action. It's time to stop doing the same things and expecting a different result.

The enterprises that will survive embrace the entrepreneurial mindset, culture and approach. In this talk Barry will share how he is helping Fortune 500 companies rekindle their innovative spirit to tackle uncertainty and win.

Large organizations often struggle to leverage software to create innovative products. A number of organizational factors conspire to create obstacles to moving fast at scale, including culture, governance, and financial management, and the application of portfolio and program management strategies that do not take advantage of the unique characteristics of software.
