Lean Impact: How to Innovate for Radically Greater Social Good

Join us to hear Ann Mei Chang speak about her book "Lean Impact: How to Innovate for Radically Greater Social Good".

Are you tackling one or more problems facing people and the planet, but just can't seem to make enough of a dent? Transformative change will not be achieved through business as usual. By building on the best practices for innovation that have emerged from Silicon Valley, we can bend the curve of progress by running lightweight experiments, driving fast feedback loops, and accelerating learning. The result will better address real needs, improve cost effectiveness, and unleash the possibility of true scale. Through inspiring stories drawn from her interviews with over 200 organizations across sectors and geographies, Ann Mei will share both the theory and the practice behind successful social innovation.

This event will be followed by a reception in Fuqua's Faculty Hall.
