Barry O'Reilly    

Co-Founder of Humble, O’Reilly and Associates, Innovation Expert, Former CTO British Airways

Barry O’Reilly works with leading global organizations on continuous improvement using lean and agile practices and principles. He has been an entrepreneur, employee, and consultant. After several startups, his focus shifted towards the enterprise where he has explored the intersection of business model innovation, product development, organizational design and culture transformation. He is a co-author of Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organizations Innovate At Scale. He is an internationally sought after speaker and frequent writer for The Economist. Barry is Co-founder and Partner at Humble, O’Reilly and Associates. It’s mission is to help technology led businesses innovate at scale. Barry takes a refreshing and highly effective approach to getting a cross-functional group of managers to identify and prove value from innovation that would otherwise remain hidden or blocked in their business. The approach of driving very early customer testing well ahead of when it would normally be done – in parallel with developing the bigger vision – forces a focus on minimum viable product and early proof points. This proved to be very engaging in our business for stakeholders up to board level – instead of ‘here is a big programme – trust us’ the message was ‘here is a game changing initiative and you can touch and feel the first steps of it’. Barry brings a very practical style and methodology to bear which empowered the team – so we really owned the outcome and developed both as a team and as individuals.
