Ann Mei Chang, Executive Director of Lean Impact and the author of Lean Impact: How to Innovate for Radically Greater Social Good, Joins Denver Frederick
The social sector, with some notable exceptions, has approached solving problems in very much the same way for decades now. And while that approach has yielded us some significant wins, it no longer seems to be up to the task for dealing with the scale of today’s problems. So, importing some of the best practices, such as a lean startup movement from business, making the right accommodations to fit the social sector seems like a pretty good idea, and the woman pioneering that idea is with us now. She is Ann Mei Chang, the executive director of Lean Impact and the author of Lean Impact: How to Innovate for Radically Greater Social Good. Good evening, Ann Mei, and welcome to The Business of Giving.
