How To Build & Lead Successful Lean Practices In High Growth Companies
In this hands-on class, Jeff Gothelf, author of Lean UX and Sense & Respond, focuses the material on managing teams and their activities in an effort to build and scale successful lean practices. We will work together as a group to identify what an ideal process looks like, what gets in the way of implementing it and design explicit tactics to overcome these obstacles.
We’ll combine the ideas behind Lean Startup, Agile, Lean UX and modern management to create specific frameworks you can bring back to the office. It’s also a great opportunity to connect with, share experiences with, and learn from peers–leaders who are in a similar position as you.
This class is for you if:
You’re managing multiple product teams and want to get better at coordinating their activities.
You’re a senior practitioner or team leader who has run at least one lean experiment, and you’re trying to get better at running experiments.
You’re currently working on an agile team, but it feels strangely “waterfall-ish.” You’d like to move to a more continuous and iterative feedback-based process.
You have product discovery activities and product delivery activities, but they’re not as well-integrated as you’d like.
You want to build your capability to lead the change on your team and at your company
This course will spend a little time on the basics of organizational agility and move quickly beyond. In this class you’ll learn:
How to align your teams’ efforts to larger strategy and to the needs of your business
How to frame your teams’ work in a way that encourages exploration and innovation
How to structure your projects around risk and learning
How to ensure that risk and learning are considered in every iteration
How to build consistent product discovery practices into your product delivery cadences
This workshop isn’t just for managers. One of the biggest misconceptions in organizational transformations is that process will solve everything. In fact, process frameworks are just the starting point. They must be evolved into contextual practices that work for your company’s unique situations, domains and challenges. This workshop is ideal for:
Product managers, product owners, or producers
User experience practitioners
Engineers and testers
Scrum masters, agile coaches, and project managers
Team leaders, stakeholders, agile coaches and business line owners
And anyone else on your team motivated by creating environments where people love coming to work
You should bring your team. Otherwise you’re just going to have to try to explain all this stuff to them when you get back to the office.
This workshop is fast-paced and collaborative. Jeff will teach with a mixture of slides, videos, storytelling, activities and humor. You’ll get your hands dirty getting a taste of the many practices he teaches.
Aside from the day’s instruction and learning, all participants will receive a copy of each of Jeff Gothelf’s books Lean UX, Sense & Respond and Lean vs Agile vs Design Thinking.
