Because managing a product – whether you’ve got a multi-product line or a single product business is complex and requires different skills, methods, tools and perspectives at different stages of the product’s lifecycle in order to launch a new product or maintain, sustain and grow the product.

  • Webcast: Lean Startup in Healthcare w/ Eric Ries

    Online Webinar on Your computer

    Register for webinar http://bit.ly/2a4uUDl Join Eric Ries and Geeta Wilson, director of Consumer Experience at Humana, to discuss Lean Startup in the health and wellness industry. In this webcast, brought to you in partnership with Humana, Eric and Geeta will talk about the issues facing companies in regulatory environments, and the unique position that leaders must take in order to implement lean startup. They’ll discuss the successes (and struggles) that Humana has faced, as well as challenges in the healthcare industry that other companies can learn from, such as: • lean startup to empower different parts of the value chain, • innovation in a professional environment, bringing new products to market, and more. The discussion will be moderated by Phil Dillard, a lean startup expert and trainer. About the Speakers EricRies Eric Ries is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and author recognized for pioneering the lean startup movement, a new-business strategy which directs startup companies to allocate their resources as efficiently as possible. GeetaWilson Geeta Wilson is a highly innovative and transformational Customer Experience and Operational Excellence leader with extensive domestic and international experience within start-ups and Fortune 500 companies such as Humana and NCR. She has specific knowledge and background in both mature and pre-IPO organizations. Known as a visionary with a dynamic, results-oriented approach to success, her passion has taken shape with bringing the spirit of the start-up within healthcare insurance giant Humana while returning to the company some $6M+ first year savings. Coined as Faststart - the growing enterprise consumer-centric movement has challenged convention and Humana's corporate routines to 5000+ associates and 1000+ leaders using methods from Lean Start-up, Agile/Scrum, Design Thinking, and Lean 6 Sigma to accelerate speed to market across all lines of business. Adopting a "scrappy but not crappy" philosophy, Geeta has led the cross-functional FastStart team of less than a 100 to insist on breaking down silos, rethinking routine, pioneering simplicity, cultivating uniqueness, rejecting bureaucracy and making it easy for consumers to do business with Humana -- all at the same time being entrenched in trust-centered leadership and associate empowered environment.
