All written lean practices are wrong
Misconceptions occur. Even within face to face interaction. And of course, when concepts are spread with keywords. Let's discuss several lean practices in depth. And let's think what their purposes and values are. Value Stream and Flow, Visualization, Pull-System, 5 Times Whys, Kanban, Kaizen, etc.

The Girl with the Chisel Tip Marker
One of the quickest ways to achieve greater buy-in, clearer communication and higher levels of engagement with team members, stakeholders, sponsors and business units is to get "visual agility".

Visual Agility is about three things:

Capturing - the information, thinking and ideas of the team, stakeholders and sponsors
Conveying - that information in a way that’s compelling and easy to understand
Collaborating - using innovative tools that bring people together to think, talk and do great things
Visual agility. Yes its about using cards, stories, post it notes… but it's also about using visual charts, maps, models, metaphors, and most of all, hand crafted "drawn-in-the-moment" visuals.

If you're thinking you can't draw so well (or at all !), Lynne's session will boost your capability, instantly. And if you've already got some sketching skills up your sleeve, Lynne's session will guide you so you can finesse, develop and mature your visual thinking capability for even greater public display!

In agile we often speak about making work visible, showing progress, visualising solutions, scoping out possibilities. Having 'visual agility' gives you the capability and confidence to step into any role at a moment's notice and help bring clarity to the problem, quicker. This is more than sketch noting for your own use; it's for bringing clarity to situations and communicating and collaborating through complexity.

You'll learn some of the most highly engaging ways to facilitate with visuals in an agile world and come away with 60 visual images and icons to put to work straight away.

Lynne will be live drawing to show you what to do, how to apply it and what it can look like.

High Impact Facilitation
In a meeting or workshop, you need to achieve an outcome, AND make sure people are coming along for the journey. How do you handle this ‘juggling’ or ‘balancing act’?

The High Impact Facilitator balances the imperatives of:

achieving outcomes
boosting engagement
driving productivity
encouraging contribution.
The session covers:
1 : It's all about how you start

This module covers your set-up for a high impact facilitation, getting yourself ready, setting up the environment and your opening 'scripts', style and statements.

2 : Your structures and processes

This module takes you through six different models and processes that Lynne regularly uses in high impact facilitation sessions.

3 : Designing agendas for high impact outcomes

This module shares the inside information on how to use the time available to get to high impact. It's no mistake that great outcomes are achieved in teams by a facilitator who has had a hand in crafting the agenda.

Learn how to use the chunks of time available to get where you need to get to... no matter how long your workshop, meeting or conversation.

4 : Handling tricky stuff

Once you, the environment and the process you're using is sorted, it's now over to you as the facilitator to simply... handle what happens.

There are many different responses to every situation that occurs. There's no one answer - but there is often a 'continuum of response'. This gives you the fleixibility to try something, try something else and try something else to get to the impact you're aiming for.

5 : Incorporating visuals, icons and templates to your facilitation toolkit

This module brings in the power of 'visual mojo'. It's not about what you can draw, but what you can draw out of the group.

6 : Putting it all together

This final module brings the learning together and applies it to a real life situation in your world.

Team-Driven Improvement with Retrospectives
Most teams following an Agile approach to software development want to find better ways of working to deliver value to their customers. Teamwork can be hard but also gives a great advantage of many ideas for doing things differently. A retrospective is a meeting where you all get together to reflect on you have learned working together and figure out how to do even better next time. Come to this workshop to learn how to plan and facilitate an effective retrospective. This will be an interactive session where you will have a chance to try out some exercises in groups that you can use when working with teams.

How serious play leads to breakthrough innovation
A Serious Game is a game whose primary intent is not pure entertainment. We learn best when we play and an increasing number of organizations have realized the enormous potential of game-based activities. Serious Games can be applied to a broad spectrum of areas like training, hiring, generating new ideas, making meetings more effective, generating feedback about a product or service, improving communication, avoiding common decision-making pitfalls, feature prioritization, vision sharing, SWOT analysis, strategy building, reflect and learn sessions and change management... The list goes on.

Organizations like Google, IBM or the United Nations use Serious Games on a regular basis. Not a single month passes without a book, article, conference or training about this increasingly popular topic.

The growing success of Agile methods, which put a strong emphasis on people interactions, fun and build a creativity-friendly environment, have made Serious Games even more popular.

The workshops will be facilitated with the aim to bring fun into work and produce highly valuable outcomes fast.

Temenos - Understand yourself and others
Three pillars enable empirical process control; Inspection, Adaptation and Transparency. 

Transparency is often the most difficult pillar to erect and keep standing. Even when we think we’re being transparent we’re often surprised to discover what we’re still concealing. Most of us don't really know ourselves, let alone anyone else.

Temenos is a healing container, developed by Siraj Sirajuddin. It helps any individual, team or community share with and understand one another. With the healing powers of Temenos, healthy and trusting relationships can be built or rebuilt. Authentic behaviour is permitted and empathic connections can be forged. 

Temenos can be the event that kindles the fire within a team, a community or a relationship with a valued client. It has the power to rebalance our lives, to restore our self-awareness, to reconnect with our heart and soul; those 'other' human elements we've long overlooked.

We are beginning to re-appreciate the value of Emotional Intelligence and how this can improve our ability to use empirical process control. Temenos can create potent results, restoring health and sustainability to you and your team, and you can experience it in this workshop.
