Running GV sprints inside corporates — learn from my mistakes

Awesome article, Heath, and so timely given so many large traditional businesses are trying to reinvent themselves to stay relevant. As a ‘runner’ of sprints myself, I couldn’t agree with you more.

Big enterprises, are not set up for ambiguity and taking risks — quite the opposite. They are about predictable shareholder returns. To stay relevant, a business needs to constantly grow, which for me is about learning.

Sprint is as much a philosophy as it is a process. So the leadership of the company needs to embrace it as one of their cultural values — be a learning organisation, seek new ideas, experiment. If the culture of the organisation is not right, no smart process will help.
