From One To Zero: Going Smaller As A Growth Strategy

Management mindset has traditionally translated the size of the organization to the seniority of a manager. However, there is nothing as challenging and good for learning as taking an organization of zero size, and successfully growing it. In this talk, Xavier will draw on his experience going from very large organizations to founding a startup. He will describe those principles that he has found to remain invariant as well as the many things that change depending on the size and the focus of the organization, and reflect on how these experiences can help anyone grow as a manager.
