Learn to Facilitate 

This virtual workshop will train your staff in EventStorming facilitation skills that they can apply in your organization. In this highly hands-on and interactive virtual workshop, you'll learn advanced EventStorming facilitation skills spanning from large-scale business discovery to collaborative solution design at the team level.

Learn how to facilitate the different EventStorming formats applied to real business problems, taking into account the different perspectives (including the facilitator). Practice applying EventStorming to various problems, reflecting on your learning and questions as we go deeper into the techniques. 

 

Learn tips and tricks for effective facilitation of collaborative workshops in both in-person and virtual settings, and practice planning an event storming session for your own context.  Our goal is for you to leave the workshop energized and ready to put into practice what you've learned.
