Once upon a time there was a team, in a restricted area of the french railway company, who was starting its first intrapreneurship journey despite all the evils and bad habits of a traditional management culture… It’s time to break the rules and make it rock! The story is about growing an amazing team, make it work together, speak the same language, and have a lot of fun in order to achieve a common goal: build a wonderful, beautiful product that will delight its users! What if our product is not that great? Let’s get some feedback from our clients! Even small things can bring true emotions and precious insights. After 2 weeks our users were able to test the first sample of the product and to give their feedback. From that moment the team was starving for more and more feedbacks to bring out a better product. Would you like to know the end of the story? Open the door, relax and take a seat and we’ll be happy to share with you our experience…


Be cool, be curious and prepare to have fun…

Benefits for the attendees

A lot of things… Real intrapreneurship lean startup journey in a major french company! Yes, even in France it can happen! Our talk is all about the challenges that a lean startup intrapreneur venture in a traditional public represents. We’ll go through command and control patterns, unvalidated assumptions, lack of real connection to the users. In a second part we’ll talk about building a full featured team will designers, developers, testers, and help them talk and work together like a true tribe. In the third and last part we’ll show that a direct connexion (and we mean physical) to the end users throughout the whole journey is essential not only for better feedback and insights but also to keep up team morale and motivation. It’s not a receipt but a concrete experience that can inspire a lot of agile & lean startup enthusiasts.
