“Innovation at scale and speed is our goal.” – Beth Comstock, CEO, GE
Growing a small but mighty team into a larger and effective one is no easy task. Best-selling author Robert Sutton and his Stanford colleague Huggy Rao have spent the last seven years researching how organizations like Facebook, Kaiser Permanente, IDEO, Pulse News and Proctor & Gamble spread constructive mindsets and moves from the few to the many. The outcome of their extensive research is Scaling Up Excellence, a leader’s playbook filled with practical advice for making your team bigger and better. In conversation with engineering master Chris Fry, this trio will discuss the often vexing challenge of how to “go larger” without compromising success.
