Our Continuing Work with the Kauffman Foundation
The Kauffman Foundation’s entrepreneurship initiatives are undergoing transformation. Under the leadership of Victor Hwang, Kauffman has assembled an impressive team of young professionals with ambitious plans to support the replication of entrepreneurial ecosystems across the country.
Victor turned to the Lab for assistance in designing a research roadmap to support the development and scaling of this ecosystem strategy. Since July, we’ve been working as a member of the Kauffman entrepreneurship team. in the coming months, Kauffman will be rolling out several publications that reflect the roadmap we have developed. We are also bringing the discipline of agile strategy – Strategic Doing – into the workings of the entrepreneurship team.
The Director of the Lab at UNA and co-author of Strategic Doing: 10 Skills for Agile Leadership, Ed’s work has focused on developing new models of strategy specifically designed to accelerate complex collaboration in networks and open innovation. He is the original developer of Strategic Doing.
