If you’re looking for the in-person workshop, check out the EventStorming Master Class page.
What used to be an immersive in-person experience of collaborative modelling would not be viable for a while. However, the need for a collaborative approach to envisioning and designing new services and processes is stronger than ever.
This EventStorming Remote Modelling Workshop with Alberto Brandolini will lead you through three different styles of EventStorming performed remotely, we’ll practice and discuss different styles of facilitation on business-class scenarios, in large and small teams.
EventStorming Remote Modelling Workshop is aimed at software practitioners, workshop facilitators, and explorers that want to practice EventStorming on the field.
Day 1 – Discovery: from chaos to validation
Exploring the whole with Big Picture EventStorming will help you lead and design exploratory workshops where multiple stakeholders and points of view are represented. On day one we’ll see how to facilitate a process to build an emergent structure from a chaotic exploration, and which information can we extract from the model.
Day 2 – Discovery: extracting value from Big Picture Format
Validating the business narrative can be challenging, but it makes the following steps incredibly easy: highlighting the major flow constraints, and gathering consensus about it; mapping possible bounded contexts and visualising the ideal areas of responsibility of different teams within the organisation, capturing opportunities to deliver more value and enhance the organisation as a whole, or simply scoping your next project and the ideal MVP.
Day 3 – Process design as a collaborative game
Collaborative design can be challenging when different professionals are involved, with Process Modelling EventStorming we will establish and practice multiple patterns of collaboration between specialists coming from different fields like technology, business or user experience design, making sense of existing processes or designing new ones.
Day 4 – Software Design and connecting the dots
Designing critical software poses software specific challenges: how to design complex flows keeping the balance between good user experience and consistent responsibility-driven implementation? Software Design EventStorming connects all the dots to help you design the best software for your more critical processes.
We’ll also be practising Ensemble Modelling, which will allow collaborative design in larger groups.
The final act is all about connecting the dots: designing our personal ideal workshop given our business case, and the different tools and patterns we practised.
- Practice the three main EventStorming recipes in an online format, on real-world problems.
- Experience and discuss the benefits and limitations of an online-only approach.
- Design and lead your next online workshop.
- Build a set of working practices for online workshops and avoid common pitfalls.
Online Workshop – How does it work
Learning works better in an immersive and engaging setting, and we’ve been working hard to recreate that feeling also in an online delivery format. We’ll use a virtual classroom as a container for every activity and training material, and we’ll share emergent findings more or less as we’d post flip-chart summaries on the wall.
You’ll be interacting and working together in real-time thanks to a variety of tools you’ll have at your disposal, namely a collaborative online modelling platform, a virtual classroom, a virtual flip-chart and of course a video-conference platform.
A good learning experience doesn’t match with passive fruition. Just like the in-person version of the workshop, expect to be challenged with real-world problems, and to be ready to listen to your brain signals while doing it.
Part of the content will be available upfront, part will be created collectively as long as we dig into the exercises. Every bit of created content will be available to the students after the workshop is over, in the virtual classroom link.
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.
