Talk by Jeff Gothelf: Building successful in-house innovation teams

You’ve read The Innovator’s Dilemma. You’ve bought in to The Lean Startup. You’re ready to kickstart your company’s product innovation efforts. There’s just one problem: you’re not sure where to begin:

- How do you structure a successful product design team? - How should that team work?

- How will that team measure success?

Jeff will offer practical, step-by-step, guidance on how to build and support successful product design innovation in your business.

    Hi Everyone, feel free to arrive at 6pm if you want first shot at the food, drink, and Jeff G-related convos. And for my part, I promise to introduce any 6pm arrivers to at least two other fellow agile / lean practitioners. We're a community, and as host it is my role to help you overcome The Shy and say The Hi!

    Hate to miss but I'll be outside of NY that day. Any chance it'll be recorded?

      Sorry you won't be able to join us, Phil. Normally we do not record our meetup sessions because they are informal exchange of experiences and opinions. However, I will ask Jeff for a link to his presentation that reflects best his thoughts on the topic and share it with you.
