Our approach, based on the book Lean Impact: How to innovate for radically greater good by Spring Impact Senior Advisor Ann Mei Chang, helps teams quickly move from a big audacious goal to small experiments that help create sustainable and scalable solutions faster.

Lean Impact is based on three principles:

  1. Think Big – set audacious goals and build an engine for growth that will move the needle relative to the size of the problem
  2. Start Small – build the agility to run fast experiments and drive feedback loops that will accelerate your pace of learning and reduce waste of time and money
  3. Relentlessly Seek Impact – identify and track the metrics that matter to increase impact and scale

It equipped us with the actual methodologies, practices and mindsets we need to be able to innovate more quickly and adjust our work to achieve greater impact.

— Lisa Countryman, JVS CEO

WHAT WOULD YOU GET OUT OF LEAN?

  • Tools and the mindset needed to help you innovate and take action quickly in conditions of uncertainty
  • Saved time and money by testing your riskiest assumptions through lightweight experiments
  • Practice making rapid, data-driven decisions
  • Progress towards a scalable and sustainable solution or program

WHO IS LEAN FOR?

  • Any team that wants to create or develop a breakthrough idea or change that could have massive impact but has uncertainty about how to do it
  • Organizations that want to embed a culture of innovation

WHAT IS THE TYPICAL PROCESS?

  • Lean overview to introduce the core concepts to the team (whole organization welcome to join)
  • One or many teams of 6 – 8 people go through four, 2-hour workshops finishing by designing their first Lean experiment
  • 8 weeks of coaching as the team(s) implement their Lean experiments and improve or pivot their solution based on results
  • Simultaneously Spring Impact runs a series of workshops with the executive team to ensure lean impact approaches are embedded in the organizational culture
  • While time commitments vary greatly depending on experiments, typically team members should expect to commit ~4 hours/week for the duration of the project, inclusive of workshops and coaching sessions.
