Lean Startup Executive Workshop

GOAL: An executive workshop on Lean Startup, discussing the origin of Lean Startup. The workshop is a half-day long. Participants will work on a practical case study, which will make it clear how Lean Startup teams can be managed. Finally, we will look at how Lean Startup fits in a large organisation (see program in the annex).

“In an interactive session on Lean Startup for and with executives, BW Ventures with enthusiasm has convinced our KPN New Business Leadership team about this way of working.

We didn’t only share the approach and the benefits of Lean startup, but we got a lot of inspiration what that means for our leadership style.

After this training, several teams on innovation started under the supervision of BW Ventures according to the Lean Startup methodology. As a result, we got enthusiastic teams, valuable customer insights and an acceleration of innovation at KPN New Business.”
