“I've grown very enthusiastic about lean startup thinking. I think my enthusiasm sparked last spring when we were demoing one of our new services here at Aalto Design Factory. Today, I came here to meet with one of our partners over breakfast. Organisational charts and specific job descriptions may place too many obstacles for new innovations in large companies. I am putting together a change agent group here at Smartum, which will be tasked with eliminating obstacles and simplifying meticulous testing and flexible work. I feel it is important to infuse a startup spirit even into large companies.”
