About The Sprint

Big businesses have spent millions developing superior processes, models, R&D teams and accruing some of the best people. So, are they so often catastrophically disrupted by smaller, more malleable groups?

Because ‘big businesses also have a ‘big view.' They set their sights too far ahead into a world that will never exist, and take giant, lumbering strides to get there.

Their risk-averse desire to be methodical means they are slow and responsive, in a world that rewards agility, humility, and proactive approach.

The age of the marathon-strategy is antiquated.

This is the day of the sprint where the fastest to test, quickest to lose & test again is the bookies favourite.

When you think like a sprinter, you gain proximity to the customer, speed to market and knowledge to be actioned. You listen, act, reconcile and act again.

In this talk, Vusi will share the mindset required to move nimbly through the modern world and to take advantage of start-up thinking.

Leaders will learn how to be able to change direction at will, on the head of a pin and to move faster in the right direction – whichever that direction that may be.
