Agile comes into its own here; start-up outside the constraints of corporate structure – begin with a relevant outcome - pick just a few key projects and deliver fast - minimum viable products.
Fail fast and maintain a funnel of new ideas - kill your darlings – pivot fast but, whatever you do, make a start now.
