Lynne Smith, former Director of Business Design at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, discusses the potential and difficulties of applying Lean Thinking to NGOs, and how it can be used to scale impact. She reflects back on the lean transformation at the Gates Foundation with an interview with Steve Bell and Roberto Priolo, and shares examples of streamlining office processes to get funding more quickly into the hands of those in need.

Steve also talks about his experiences working with NGO’s, and why he feels Lean is critical to reduce the risk of investments and grants.
