popcornflow-hareOnce upon a time, a tortoise called “Slow & Steady” won a race against an overconfident hare…

Many of us still use the famous Aesop’s fable to illustrate the relentless Lean approach to continuous improvement.

Today, however, things are different.
What once was a little forest, is now a complex, sophisticated, interconnected world where everything is on the move.

popcornFlow-workshop-hare-vs-tortoiseEveryone, including the wise Lean tortoise, is in trouble.

Luckily, the hare came to my PopcornFlow workshop and learned how to thrive on complexity.

It’s time for a rematch!

What will you learn in this workshop?

PopcornFlow brings a philosophy, principles, actionable techniques and tools to introduce rapid change in your organization 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 ultra-rapid experimentation.

Among other things, we’ll have a strong indication of success by the number of experiments that you’ll have ready to launch on Monday morning in your workplace.

After this workshop, I anticipate you will:

  • Use PopcornFlow as your core system to introduce, sustain and accelerate change to annihilate organizational inertia
  • Use solid metrics to indicate increased agility and progress within your team(s)
  • Be able to facilitate very effective retrospectives for both co-located and distributed teams
  • Use PopcornFlow as a visual communication/mentoring platform to reach wider consensus and take better decisions with peers, managers and/or reports
  • Integrate and/or replace other popular (but often short-lived and less effective) Lean Startup tools with PopcornFlow’s experiment board to sustain continuous product innovation and get traction.
  • Be happy… really happy.

Who is this for

The course is designed for:

  • Innovators (either inside or outside organizations),
  • Change Instigators (e.g. change agents, PMs/scrum masters/team leads, managers, whole teams)
  • Achievers (you 🙂 )

This is a practical, action-learning workshop focused on real problems. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring issues from their business and situations.

Pro tip:
You can experiment “on” people or – even better – “with” people. Bring your teammates with you!

Duration and terms

The course is typically offered as 1-day training seminar for max. 25 people to ensure plenty of interactivity. Other time/number combinations are possible on request. The program is highly interactive and learner-centered. Participants will move, speak, draw, listen, write and, of course, experiment!

Material


PopcornFlow-WorkbookSlides, 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 receive and use:

  • A full-color workbook with many exercises and individual activities.
  • The latest version of the not-yet-released-to-the-public PopcornFlow Action Deck .

PopcornFlow-Action-Deck-TeaserThe 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.

Don’t bother asking… You can’t buy it, you have to earn it :-).

Methodology

The workshop includes individual and group activities to actively involve participants in learning/refining the PopcornFlow methodology and allow them to practice in a safe and fun environment.

The workshop follows the 4C instructional design model, which is based on sequences of:

Connections

Activities that connect learners to what they know already about the topic, to each other, and to what they want and need to learn.

Concrete Practice

Leaners actively review content and practice skills.

Concepts

Lectures or “direct instruction” training segments.

Conclusions

Learner-­led summaries, evaluations, and celebration activities.
