Breakthrough Consumer Experience – Revolutionizing Your Organization to Deliver Value

 “There is only one boss. The customer; and he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money elsewhere.” … (Sam Walton founder of Walmart)

In today’s volatile market, consumer-focused experience is the single driver for long term survival. Companies such as Facebook, Amazon, Google, John Deere and Salesforce figured out the approach to sustainable product development: they revolutionized their Minimal Consumer Experience (MVE) by applying the methodologies of Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Agile Product Development, Continuous Delivery, and DEVOPS. The successful integration of these breakthrough concepts is at the heart of long-term success whether your company is in the Software industry, Retail, Health, IT or government.

In an eye-opening presentation based on his global experience working with Fortune 100 companies like United Health Group, Intel, Philips, transformation expert Michael Nir shares the essential ingredients that will help guide you through the MVE journey.

The presentation will compel you to rethink your organization; How to move from legacy operational models (sales, operations, engineering, marketing, finance, and product) to a unified cross-functional task force; driving innovation, creativity and delivering value to customers!

 “The average lifespan of a company listed in the S&P 500 has shrunk by more than 50 years in the last century, from 67 years in the 1920s to 15 years today”… (Yale professor Richard Foster).

Make sure you last!   Take one step to revolutionize your organization today – let Michael inspire your journey to transformation.
