  • How to Intentionally Design a (Lean Startup) Culture
    Room: Herbst

    The ability to test and launch new value propositions and business models is essential to grow and thrive. Creating such a Lean Startup culture is exceptionally hard for existing organizations, especially for large ones. They are streamlined to execute known and proven business models. They are not optimized to invent new ones.

    In this talk Alex Osterwalder shows you how to intentionally design an innovation culture alongside a solid execution culture. The inventor of the Business Model Canvas and Value Proposition Canvas introduces Strategyzer’s latest tool, the Culture Map.

    This practical tool was co-developed with entrepreneur and author Dave Gray. It helps teams and companies asses their existing organizational culture and intentionally design a desired one.
