ADVANCE PRAISE for Sense and Respond:
Eric Ries, author, The Lean Startup—
“The authors’ ideas—from the continuous two-way conversation we should be having with customers to the concept of ‘learning forward’ in order to forge ahead despite uncertainty—provide a crucial framework for the modern world of business. With fascinating case studies and practical advice, Sense and Respond shows how to take the structures and methods of software companies and apply them to organizations of all kinds and sizes.”
Rita Gunther McGrath, Professor of Management, Columbia Business School; author, The End of Competitive Advantage—
“Gothelf and Seiden starkly highlight that our twentieth-century management systems and practices simply cannot function in a world of constant change. In this insightful and practical book, they provide crucial principles and techniques for becoming a ‘sense and respond’ organization.”
Noelle Eder, Executive Vice President, Card Customer Experience and Operations, Capital One—
“Sense and Respond offers compelling, real-world examples and practical advice on what I’ve seen firsthand: how implementing agile practices and fully embracing a test-and-learn approach to innovation can drive results and create new opportunities—regardless of the industry you work in.”
