Extreme Ownership: The Principles of Effective Leadership!
Leadership is complex. It involves a variety of skills and qualities. But there are some principles that cut across all styles of leadership, and one of them is Extreme Ownership. Extreme Ownership is the idea that every leader should take full responsibility for their actions.
Keep It Simple – Reduce Complexity by Learning Ten-Times Faster!
Disruptions are happening every time a new technology, a new service, or a new business model provides a ten-time improvement of the present solution. According to Tony Seba (author and co-founder of RethinkX) this is valid all since Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in the 15th century. Providing the new solution at ten-times lower cost or being ten-times faster. Digitalization is adding to that trend.
The Power of (Lean) Community
The pandemic dramatically redefined our ideas about community and what being part of a community meant. Some communities were strengthened, new ones were created and some atrophied or ceased to exist. Professional organizations, religious organizations, schools, and businesses were forced to rethink how their community would connect and stay a community often without being able to meet face-to-face. Being part of a community that prospered during this time had a significant impact on how, and how well, people coped with the overall pandemic. That said, some aspects were lost without even recognizing them.
Building a Lean Culture of Innovation
In the article “Unlearning What Toyota Taught Us,”1 author John McElroy lauds Tesla’s success with electric vehicles and wonders where Toyota has been. He specifically quotes the book The Toyota Product Development System2 when describing the Toyota product development standard, which he contrasts with the process used by Tesla: much more rapid improvements, no spec freeze, changes after the launch, etc. McElroy also remarks how forgiving Tesla customers are with small quality problems.

It was great to learn so much and connect with so many people in a close & personal environment!
Thanks to you and the rest of the board on delivering a successful event! I attended a couple of great sessions and learned new info to put to use in our product development system.
The LPPDE conference has provided me with fantastic learning and networking opportunities, and has taught time more about LEAN PD than any training I have ever attended. Thank you for this excellent experience!
Excellent event. Very good speakers, time for exchange, and networking is really worthwhile.
