Large organizations often struggle to launch innovative products, improve processes or create environments to help their people succeed. A number of factors conspire to obstruct moving fast at scale; competing priorities, siloed thinking, risk averse cultures and an inability to adopt an experimentation mindset all play a part.

Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organization Innovate At Scale lays out an alternative future vision for organizations with practical principles and patterns to help you move fast at scale—and demonstrate why and how to apply these methodologies throughout your entire organization, rather than with just one department or team.
