In this hands-on workshop, Josh Seiden focuses the material on managing teams and their activities in an effort to build and scale successful Lean practices.
We will work together as a group to identify what an ideal process looks like, what gets in the way of implementing it and design explicit tactics to overcome these obstacles.
We’ll combine the ideas behind Lean Startup, Agile, Lean UX and modern management to create specific frameworks you can bring back to the office. It’s also a great opportunity to connect with, share experiences with, and learn from peers – leaders who are in a similar position as you.
What you’ll learn:
This course will spend a short time on the basics of organisational agility and move quickly beyond. You’ll learn how to:
► Align your teams’ efforts to larger strategy and to the needs of your business
► Frame your teams’ work in a way that encourages exploration and innovation
► Structure your projects around risk and learning
► Ensure that risk and learning are considered in every iteration
► Build consistent product discovery practices into your product delivery cadences
Who should attend? (All key members of your team, that’s who)
This workshop isn’t just for managers. One of the biggest misconceptions in organisational transformations is that process will solve everything. In fact, process frameworks are just the starting point. They must be evolved into contextual practices that work for your company’s unique situations, domains and challenges. This workshop is ideal for:
► Product managers, product owners, or producers
► User experience practitioners
► Engineers and testers
► Scrum masters, Agile coaches, and project managers
► Team leaders, stakeholders, Agile coaches and business line owners
► And anyone else in your team motivated by creating environments where people love coming to work
You should bring your team. Otherwise you’re just going to have to try to explain all this stuff to them when you get back to the office.
It won’t be boring:
This workshop is fast-paced and collaborative. Josh will teach with a mixture of slides, videos, storytelling, activities and humour. You’ll get your hands dirty getting a taste of the many practices he teaches.
