Serial entrepreneurs David Kidder and Christina Wallace reveal their revolutionary playbook for igniting growth inside established companies. Most established companies face a key survival challenge, says David Kidder, CEO of Bionic, lifelong entrepreneur, and angel investor in more than thirty startups: operational efficiency and outdated bureaucracy are at war with new growth. Legacy companies are skilled at growing big businesses into even bigger ones. But they are less adept at discovering new opportunities and turning them into big businesses, the way entrepreneurs and early-stage investors must. In New to Big, Kidder and Wallace reveal their proprietary blueprint for installing a permanent growth capability inside any company--the Growth Operating System. The Growth OS borrows the best tools, systems, and mind-sets from entrepreneurship and venture capital and adapts them for established organizations, leveraging these two distinct skills as a form of management for building in a future that is uncertain. By focusing on what consumers do rather than what they say, celebrating productive failure, embracing a portfolio approach, and learning from the outside-in, Kidder and Wallace argue any company can go on offense and win the future. This isn't about a one-off innovation moonshot. It's about building a permanent ladder to the moon.

When David Kidder was invited to speak at GE's annual leadership conference in 2012, he posed a rather unexpected question from the stage down to then-chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt, "How many $50 million companies did you launch last year?" His next provocation was, "I bet the answer is zero." But Immelt, rather than being offended by the radical candor, admitted to the 700 leaders in attendance, "That was the most important question in the thirty-seven years of this conference." The fact is, as Kidder and Wallace show in New to Big, efficiency thinking and outdated bureaucracy is at war with new ideas. Established companies are skilled at growing big businesses into even bigger ones. Entrepreneurs and early-stage investors, on the other hand, are skilled at discovering new opportunities and turning them into big businesses. New to Bigcombines these two critical skills, introducing established companies to the methodology, tools, and systems of entrepreneurship and venture capital as a new form of management. It creates a way of working that they call the Growth Operating System. New to Bigis designed to unpack Bionic's Growth OS, which veteran venture capitalists and successful entrepreneurs use to discover and build opportunities in a future that is unknowable. Because even most bets placed by VC's fail, more than 80 percent of the time. Which is why New to Bigchallenges business leaders to focus on what customers do, rather than what they say; to celebrate productive failure; and to embrace a portfolio approach, learning from the outside-in. The Growth OS ultimately creates a permanent capability for growth, empowering established companies to build the future and take on the grand challenges of our time. Contributor Bio(s)
