Creating a Culture of Agile Execution

This session explores how to lead a team through disruption and position your business for sustained profitable growth. With an emphasis on execution, Sanjay will explore principles on how to think big, start small, and scale fast.  And if you fail, as you often will, how to fail fast, learn quickly, and move on.
