One of the most important questions a leader can ask themselves is: “How do I get my teams, my organization to move faster?” That is the challenge that all leaders face. This challenge grows more intense every day. Lead with Speed is the answer. This problem of speed is often disguised by other symptoms, such as “my projects cannot make an accurate prediction of when they will be done” or the stated need of “my teams need to take more risks.” The real need is not reckless risk-taking that will lead to even more problems and nishing even later. The real need is for speed.
Alan Willett is the master of the “friction points” of organizations highly dependent on technology. This ranges from organizations that create world-class software products to the organization that use those products to create their own competitive advantage. Alan is the expert who transforms organizational friction points to produce positive results for the business and the people that create and use the technology.
During this interview, Alan and I discuss the following topics:
- The Inspiration behind the book
- How leaders can own the accelerator
- How leaders can avoid data analysis paralysis
- How Leaders can get into the mindset for leading with speed
