Alexey Pikulev - Agile Coach at Luxoft

The whole world is on the move.

Are you evolving fast enough?

  • Piles of work.
  • Aggressive deadlines.
  • Quality sucks could improve.
  • Decisions take forever.
  • Have we released it yet?
  • Do we have the right mindset?
  • Fear to f*** things up.
  • "Still in a meeting."
  • Are we building the right thing?
  • We need more people!
  • Not much time for reflection.
  • Is failure ever celebrated here?
  • Are we efficient? More importantly... Are we effective?
  • Customers? What customers?
  • Are we still here? For how long?
  • Have we plateaued? Can't we do even better?
  • Let's innovate! But... how?

We've been there. The list can go on and on. 

What will you learn in this workshop?

PopcornFlow brings an anti-fragile philosophy, principles, actionable techniques and tools to fight organizational inertia and innovate like some of the best and most aggressive Lean startups around. 

The goal of this workshop is to help you develop the skills to introduce change and innovate inside and outside your workplace through a disciplined approach to ultra-rapid experimentation.

After this workshop, you'll be able to

  • Use PopcornFlow as a visual communication/mentoring system to reach wider consensus and take better decisions with peers, managers and/or reports.
  • Be able to facilitate very effective retrospectives for both co-located and distributed teams.
  • Collaborate with other teams to create, co-create, "buy" and trade options.
  • Use solid metrics to demonstrate increased team agility and progress.
  • Use stealth & virus-like strategies to safely absorb potentially risk-adverse dominant mindsets.
  • Easily integrate with and accelerate other company initiatives/transformations/continuous-improvement efforts.
  • Use PopcornFlow's experiment board to integrate and/or replace other Lean Startup tools to sustain continuous product innovation.

My teams love PopcornFlow! It’s helping them become more self-organized and more agile. We are already seeing major gains. At our last check-in, I asked one of my teams to describe the mood of the past couple weeks. Their words: "Focused. Chill. Rockin’. Inspired." One of them even said it’s like a fog has been lifted, and they have vision again.

Essie Weiss, Scrum Master at Capital One

PopcornFlow enables self-organized rapid change like nothing else I've seen or used. 

It promotes collaboration and develops collective intelligence.


Steve Tendon, Senior Blockchain Advisor at Quantum Financial Analytics

Duration & Terms

The course is typically offered as 1-day training seminar for max. 20 people to ensure plenty of interactivity.  Participants will move, speak, draw, listen, write and, of course, experiment! Other configurations/customizations are possible on request.  

Methodology and Material

This is a practicalaction-learning workshop focused on real problems, not simulations. Participants bring problems they face right now!

It is highly interactive and learner-centered. It includes individual and group activities to actively involve participants in learning the PopcornFlow approach and allow them to practice in a safe and fun environment.  

Slides, handouts and flip charts are used throughout the workshop to share stories, rapidly build the foundation and kickstart practical group activities.

In addition, each participant will typically receive and use:

  • A full-color workbook with many exercises and individual activities.
  • The latest version of the PopcornFlow Action Deck .

The PopcornFlow Action Deck consists of a mini-set of brainstorming cards to help you setup and launch experiments very rapidly. It's a very effective tool, particularly to launch 1-on-1 problem-solving conversations anywhere (including Irish pubs with a good pint at your side ;-)).

The deck is currently only available as part of this workshop. It can't be bought. I has to be earned.
