Continuous Innovation & Change with PopcornFlow
An “epic” workshop for innovators, change instigators and achievers
Move fast, learn faster and thrive through ultra-rapid experimentation!
Once 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.
Everyone, including the wise Lean tortoise, is in trouble.
Luckily, the hare came to Claudio Perrone’s 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, 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.
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.
Learners will engage in learning/refining the PopcornFlow methodology through highly participative activities.
It follows the 4C instructional design model, which is based on sequences of:
Activities that connect learners to what they know already about the topic, to each other, and to what they want and need to learn.
Leaners actively review content and practice skills.
Lectures or “direct instruction” training segments.
Learner-led summaries, evaluations, and celebration activities.
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 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.
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.
In which language will be held the workshop?
The workshop will be held in English, but Alberto Brandolini will be there to facilitate discussion whenever needed, to help with translation, and to take visual notes.
Which kind of workshop should I expect?
The program is highly interactive and learner-centered. Participants will move, speak, draw, listen, write and, of course, experiment!
