Facilitator Training Online

We have trained more than 100 Playing Lean Facilitators around the world. They are uniquely qualified to turn a Playing Lean workshop into the best learning event for their clients or students. Now you can become a Playing Lean Facilitator from the comfort of your own home!

The Playing Lean Facilitator training consists of three parts.

Part 1: Game Master Training

First, you will go through all the theory in video sessions and you can do when it suits you.

The video sessions will give you:

  • an introduction to Lean Startup using the official set of slides that you will get access to, and can use in your own future Playing Lean workshops
  • insight into the Facilitator Theory, making sure you know all the tips and tricks we use ourselves to set up great events
  • backstories for the Hospitality Experiment Cards, enabling you to teach lots of Lean Startup lessons as your games progress.

Part 2: Remote group training session

In the second phase of the training you go through a 90 minute group session on Zoom.

In the session, we will take you through the:

  • in-person and remote setup of a Playing Lean 2 game,
  • how to prepare for the workshop and get organized,
  • the reading of experiment cards, and
  • any questions you might have.

Part 3: Facilitator hotseat

Our favourite part! We will get to see you in action!

We will meet online, and each Playing Lean facilitator-to-be will facilitate at least two game rounds.

You will receive immediate feedback from Bruno or Simen, helping you refine your Playing Lean facilitation skills.

Once you have successfully completed all of the training phases you will receive your Playing Lean Facilitator diploma!
