Building Spiky Orgs: Why Doing Less Is Best
10:30 AM - 11:00 AM, October 15 (PDT)


Optimizing for strengths is one way to build and grow an organization for impact. We'll discuss why building an organization that is great at only a very few things i.e., a spiky org -- can be a template for success. We'll also touch on technical, product, and organizational examples of strengths that a lot of organizations spend time developing but are often not necessary to the ultimate success of a business. Finally, we'll talk about how you can maintain these spikes as you grow, and other tricks that every manager and leader should know to keep their organization focused on the most important things.
