Large organizations have the money, resources and research to put together strong business cases to deliver awesome products and services. So why do some of these big ideas fail in the long run yet take so long to deliver?

Failing fast and failing early are almost expected in any start up now a days and because start-ups are prepared for this they relish the opportunity to constantly adapt and change their ideas till they become something that customers really find valuable.

Can small startups really influence large organizations?
I am hoping to do a talk at Agile 2012, Texas, about my personal experiences working within large organisations as a consultant, in-house leader and as a mentor advising Internet start-ups. I will highlight differences between them as well as the powerful commonalities.

How does lean start up and agile work together in a large organisation?
In this talk, I will give you insight about how teams can embrace and combine lean, agile and start-up techniques to successfully improve the way organisations think, operate and value success to deliver truly valuable products and services.

I will be focusing on one main game changing project we ran as a start up (new brand) within BSkyB and give practical examples and lesson learned that not only help the new product break into a new market but also how we drew from the successes and brought it back into the larger corporate organization to help improve the way we create and run delivery projects.
