Small experiments, big transformations

Session type: Experience Report
Session duration: 45 minutes

About this Experience Report

There are lots of ways to transform an organisation, but how are we doing it across 6 main businesses on 12 sites in the UK, and across multiple countries?

Come along and hear how empowering the teams to run small experiments and share successes and failures along the way helped transform not just those teams, but whole organisations - building a culture of experimentation that lasts.

At this session we will share our experience, and a few of our experiments to start you on the path; where will it take you?
