Key takeaways

Don’t get overly focused on governance. Get just enough internal advocacy to ensure support and provide air cover.

Pick a project where you can be decisive, pivot quickly while having room to make mistakes.

Focus the team on the essential questions to answer, the critical assumptions to test and what must be true for this idea to work.

Be willing to abandon concepts and iterate quickly. That will help you find the right path and de-risk over time.

Nurture a team of Agile Learners so you can figure this out together and build momentum.
