/

In this episode of the Breakout Growth Podcast, Sean Ellis interviews Hitachi Solutions' SVP Operations Jessica Hawk and Growth Team Lead Dean Kroker. They both played a key role in driving growth from a small startup to hundreds of employees and an impressive acquisition by Hitachi.

We discussed:

  • How to overcome resistance to growth transformation in larger organizations.
  • Their transformation over the last year from a traditional growth approach of an IT services business to one that effectively uses data and experimentation to accelerate growth. 
  • Their response to Covid 19 and how their startup agility and experience with remote implementations at Capax Global has been very helpful for the broader Hitachi solutions team. 
  • The importance of applying technical intensity to developing scalable solutions to operational growth challenges.
  • The role of a partner in driving growth when providing services built on the partner's platform.
  • The role that workshops can play in driving the organizational transformation to an agile growth hacking approach in a large company.
