Discover the fundamental resaons why Agile and Lean methods and practices work in order to adopt, tailor, and improve them.

Cynefin is a sense-making framework that helps people understand their context or situation in order to take appropriate action. The Cynefin framework can be used to select heuristics appropriate for the environment rather than defaulting to a single, recipe-based approach for all situations.

Liberating Structures Workshop

Break away from typical ways meeting of meeting with a collection of methods that are inclusive and seriously fun

Liberating Structures introduce small shifts in the way we meet, plan, decide and relate to one another. They are simple social technologies that distribute control and productively draw out more diversity and variation.  Liberating Structures are easy-to-learn methods that enhance relational coordination, trust building, and allow people to mutually shape their work together. They quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone. Liberating Structures are a disruptive innovation that can replace more controlling or constraining approaches (presentations, status reports and managed discussions).

Complexity Workshop

On-site or Online Team Workshops​

One effective learning technique is to apply new methods directly to your own work. We offer tailored workshops that combine learning with immediate application in a work context.
On-site, in-person sessions are the best way to maximize benefits, but the effort can be a challenge for some large, geographically-dispersed teams.  If in-person sessions are impractical, our online environments and tools make virtual sessions an interesting alternative.
Please contact us for more information about tailored on-site or online sessions:
