HR Cmte: Think Big, Start Small, Move Fast

“Think Big, Start Small, Move Fast”: Introducing Customer-centricity to your Corporate Culture.

To keep pace with business in today’s times and to compete in a dynamic market environment, many companies are seeking to transform their corporate cultures into customer-centric, rapidly responding cultures. The LEAN start-up approach is gaining popularity as a new way to address these challenges. This methodology is a blend of rapid experimentation and validated learnings to explore what customers really want and increase the speed to market of products and services.

Join us to hear what LEAN start-ups are all about and how the methodology can be applied in companies of all sizes. Our three eminent speakers will share their first-hand experience in using the LEAN start-up approach in both small start-ups and large, established companies.
