Has your organization ever placed a big bet on a new program or strategic initiative that fell short of expectations despite careful planning and a major commitment of human and financial resources? Are you relentlessly focused on the mission but failing to make a real impact in your community? Do you have a solution to a major social challenge, just waiting for the perfect time to act? Lean Startup, born out of Lean Manufacturing as a way to reduce physical waste and inefficiency has been adapted to deal with uncertainty, not just inefficiency.
