Episode 106 - Business Agility - Placing Small Bets

September 03, 2019
Forget Sprints and Standups - Business agility is about travelling light so you can go faster.   One important way to do that is by taking small, frequent experimental risks, also known as placing small bets.



  • Test with small investments - Rent or borrow equipment,

  • Copy other success stories and replicate them in unrelated domains

  • Get volunteers or part-timers to help.   Use gigsters

  • Learning and research - Get aggregators or summaries

  • Start with small commitments and experiments - lunch and learns versus coffees

  • Slice your scope

  • Work backwards from high-value outcomes
