Kill the Company: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution
Description
This powerful webcast sheds light on how even category-dominating behemoths can succumb to the twin evils of complexity and complacency. Progress doesn’t come from standing still.

Instead of adding more complexity through expensive, sweeping culture change initiatives, Bodell shares how teams can actually simplify to achieve more. Leaders will learn why providing guardrails instead of handcuffs to their teams can reignite critical aptitudes (curiosity, inquiry, creative problem solving) and more.
