About the Book
In today's entrepreneurial world, founders and teams are overwhelmed with options and face constant pressure to move quickly, execute, and be productive. As they seek guidance from the startup ecosystem, they often try to "scale their way up" by opting for solutions that appear to pave the way to success.
While there's undeniable value in speed, learning quickly, and adopting lean processes, the journey often leaves little room for reflective thinking or broader perspectives on entrepreneurial activity. The result is that failures cost not only the team's time but also drain their willpower.
"Slow Down to Win" calls for the courage to slow down, starting with the recognition that time spent in reflection is valuable and needs to be part of work time. Although it may seem costly, it's less expensive than continuously trying and failing, which takes the energy of the team. What we win from this reflective journey, is the recognition that management of execution is worth and essential to any entrepreneurial activity.
