Rich Sheridan, CEO and Chief Storyteller at Menlo Innovation – The Menlo Innovation Culture
Work in Progress – When we pump fear out of the room, amazing things start to happen. People generate more creative ideas and ask more meaningful questions. They skip long, unproductive meetings in favor of running experiments so they can make mistakes faster and get to solutions sooner.
Pretty much everything you encounter at Menlo comes out of experiments we've run. We're always innovating, always changing, always looking for new ways to solve problems and delight clients and the people who use what we create. Like everything else at Menlo, our culture is a work in progress.

The ability for companies to innovate has become the defining factor for a firm’s competitiveness and directly determines their prosperity. Innovation is the life-blood of an organization. The methods embodied in Lean Product and Process Development practices consistently enable organizations to deliver more product in less time with greater market impact.
