Innovate, Deviate, Disrupt
A workshop day for Store Ops leaders to apply startup agility to daily business practices.
Square Root is uniquely positioned to demonstrate and share these tactics. Since our founding in 2006, we have gained a reputation for company culture. For four consecutive years, Square Root has been honored by Fortune Magazine as one of the best small workplaces in the U.S.. This award-winning culture is built on the belief in our Radical processes such as fail-fast, agile development, and incremental improvements as well as people-driven processes like “learn anything” budgets, generous work flexibility, and CEO 1-on-1s, to name a few.
We want to offer Store Ops Leaders and their teams the opportunity to get out of their routine. After participating, we hope you will leave refreshed and excited to apply the disruptive, startup processes that have driven our success. We’ve hosted companies such as Walgreens and Nissan. Here’s what they had to say:
