EventStorming Remote Experience Workshop

EventStorming Remote Experience Workshop

Discover three different styles of EventStorming

If you’re looking for the in-person workshop, check out the EventStorming Master Class page.

EventStorming leverages interpersonal communication to deliver a compelling collaborative discovery & design experience.
But what if our organization’s constraints don’t allow in-person workshops, and remote interaction is our only remaining option?

In this workshop, we’ll put the three flavours of EventStorming to test in a remote setting, and we’ll learn and practice how to make the best use of remote tools, overcoming the limitations of a remote experience and leveraging the possibilities offered by digital media.

Target audience

EventStorming Remote Experience Workshop is aimed at software practitioners, workshop facilitators, professionals involved in the development of digital products and services, and explorers who want to practice EventStorming on the field.

Topics

  • The many flavours of EventStorming, recipes and purposes
  • Discovering complexity with Big Picture: from divergence to structure to validated narrative. Key facilitation patterns for the online setting
  • Exploring Value-Added Layers: where and how is value created in our flows? Can we gather consensus about opportunities for improvement? Can we extract information about the decomposition of the underlying software and the way teams are organized? Can we extract a structured backlog for our project?
  • Modelling processes hands-on: how a coloured grammar will shape an interdisciplinary conversation
  • Scaling facilitation and interaction styles in design: from collaborative games to ensemble modelling
  • Designing software systems: identifying key components and bounded contexts in complex flows
  • Designing your own format: heuristics to choose steps, formats and constraints given your own scenario.

Agenda

Day 1

Exploration in an online setting, making sense of divergent realities.

Day 2

Explicit walkthrough and value-added layers

Day 3

Process Modelling format. Tools for interdisciplinary collaboration

Day 4

Software Design format. Closing the gap to implementation.

Learning Objectives

  • How to design and lead the three main formats of EventStorming in a remote digital environment
  • How to deal with the common impediments happening before, during and after the workshops
  • How to use EventStorming in a variety of scenarios, customizing the format to better achieve our desired goals
  • When and when not to go for the digital version.

Online Workshop – How does it work

This workshop is mostly practical. We’ll simulate a real-life complexity scenario with a role-playing game, and we’ll drill down into the scenario from different angles and with different levels of depth.
Those intense moments will be balanced with more open-ended discussions, and disclosing some of the dirty secrets of online facilitation.

The workshop will keep its highly interactive and hands-on spirit despite being online.
This is why we require that all participants keep their webcam on for the whole duration of the workshop: this will enhance the quality of the communication and of the workshop as a whole.

Why should you buy a ticket

EventStorming is an incredibly powerful and versatile tool to navigate complexity and modelling organizations, business flows and software too.
This workshop will give you practice, examples, patterns and heuristics to design and lead your own workshops.

F.A.Q.

Do I need to know something beforehand in order to participate in this workshop?
We expect some participants to have practiced in-person EventStorming formats already, and others to be completely fresh. We also expect this mix to improve the overall experience.

Is this workshop replacing the EventStorming Master Class?
No, the Remote Experience and the Master Class are two very distinct learning experiences. Some basic principles are obviously the same, others were completely redesigned according to the digital experience. We are losing something in the transformation: what happens in terms of people dynamics, body language, and so on cannot be conveyed by an online class.
This class is designed to help you facilitate and design online workshops. IRL workshops will still be a different matter.

Is there anything I must do before I buy a ticket for this online workshop?
If you have a good internet connection (at least 20 Mbps in download and 10 Mbps in upload), headphones, mic, and camera, then you can join the training.
A double screen and a good seat will improve your learning experience.
A couple of weeks before the training, we’ll send you all the information on the tools we’ll be using, and how to access them.

N.B.

This workshop will be confirmed upon reaching the minimum number of participants. We’ll send an official confirmation to all registered attendees 10-15 days prior to the workshop dates.

LAST CHANCE! Are you interested in this course? Please purchase your ticket by Friday 22 March to help us confirm it as soon as possible.
If we do not reach the minimum number of participants required to activate it by this date, the course will not be confirmed and will be postponed… don’t wait until the last minute to buy your ticket!

The sooner we reach the minimum numbers necessary for its activation, the sooner we can confirm the course and guarantee its execution.
If the course is confirmed, you will see a green tick on this page that says “confirmed/guaranteed to run”, and you will be able to buy tickets even after this date.

The structure and agenda of this workshop are currently under review. Things have changed since the first edition of the EventStorming Remote Modelling Online Workshop (July 2020 – in the middle of the pandemic first wave), and a revision is due to provide the best available match between the agenda and the business context where the learnings could be applied.
An updated description will be available on this website in the coming weeks.

About the workshop

Language: English.
Number of attendees: max 16 participants.
Tools and Workstation: The workshop will take place online and in live streaming using digital tools. You’ll get detailed information on how to join the online workshop, how to get ready for it, and how it will work 10-15 days prior to the workshop.
It is highly recommended that each participant joins the workshop from their own workstation: not sharing one same laptop and/or room with other people will improve the remote experience.

This workshop provides excellent indications for remotely managing a workshop designed for the physical world. A skilful mix of tools and facilitation to get the result even remotely.David Bramini

I’ve been trained by Alberto Brandolini in April 2021 in a remote session. I’ve really appreciated learning by doing in a safe space with my colleagues. Even though I’d prefer meeting people in real life, the training is totally adapted for remote learning. Perfect logistic and organization. I 100% recommend it.

So much learnt, practise and ready to exercise in real life. Definetely worth doing this workshop to learn more about the EventStorming framework and specially about remote facilitation, so hugely needed nowadays. Thanks to the team and Alberto for giving me the opportunity to participate and organising it with so much care.Laura Fernandez Villar

Tons and tons of material and food for thought and kind of a dizzy feeling from coming up to quickly from the virtual depths that we dove to. Lots of fun in a very lively group. This was the first, but certainly not the last and you should jump into that pool, if you get the chance! Many thanks to the team at Avanscoperta and Alberto Brandolini for making this happen.Jörg Müller-Kindt
