Ideas are cheap. Execution is everything.
Christina has spent her career attacking impossible tasks: at Yahoo, taking on the giant Google at search; at Linkedin, bringing people to participate daily at a site about resumes; at MySpace, reinventing the profile; at Zynga, building a social network for play. Some succeeded some did not. All had one thing in common: large groups of people all working toward a single goal. Lean can tell you what to build and Agile tells you how to build it--but neither tell you how to build it as a team. How do you build consensus? How do you inspire outlandish dreams? How do you create accountability in teams? Christina will share her toolkit for clarity and commitment. She has been refining this process with the start-ups she advises and invests in, and now it's ready to ship. You know about mission statements, but what about OKRs? Predictive roadmaps? Do you have a cadence for celebration? Come to this talk, and learn how to ship as a crew.
