GE // FastWorks

FastWorks is a program introduced to GE in 2014 that combines a set of tools and practices designed to build better products for customers, faster. It’s built upon the principles in Eric Ries’ “Lean Startup” methodology. In the first year of FastWorks implementation at GE, Ries trained about 1,000 GE executives on Lean Startup principles. One of the main objectives of FastWorks is to decrease cycle time for product development in order to learn more, faster.
