The training will happen on Zoom, over three days:
October 19th - October 21st,  1800 to 2100 CET

You can check your local time of the workshop here.

We made Playing Lean, the board game, to help people understand Lean Startup and how innovation works. Hundreds of coaches, consultants and educators across the globe use it in their workshops.

The game is recommended by thought leaders like Alexander Osterwalder and Ash Maurya. Everyone can buy the game and play it with friends and colleagues, but holding an entire Playing Lean workshop remotely is a different matter.

That's why we will teach you how to take this award winning board game online, to drive learning, engage the players and make the lessons stick for longer.

In this first two days of this remote training we will teach you how to:

  • Introduce Lean Startup before starting the game, using the official set of slides that you will get access to. This includes our input on how to adapt the presentations to your context, the player's skill levels and the time you have available.
  • Make attendees focus on learning from the game as well as playing it. This is harder than you might think! We will tell you how to set up the game, how to get attention and how to balance between fun and education. We'll even give you the stories that we use to make the experience great!
  • Lead the retrospective that follows the play-through, including different options on how to get the most of the post-game experience. We also add in exercises you might consider doing after playing the game.
  • We’ll teach you how to run a Playing Lean game online
  • We'll put you in the hotseat and let you be the facilitator for a while and give you direct input on your own style! You will experience first hand how it is playing and facilitating an online Playing Lean game session.

With the Business Modelling Facilitator Training you will add a new training tool to your toolbox. All the assets you will get are ready to use, but also adaptable.

On day three of this remote training we will:
  • Give you the background on what a business model is and talk about why business modelling is important. We will also go through the two most popular tools for business modelling: Business Model Canvas and Lean Canvas!
  • Take you through each of the blocks of the canvasses and explain the structure and relationships of the canvasses. We also compare the tools conceptually and discuss which tool is preferable in different settings.
  • Take you through the details of mapping AirBnB's business model both to the Business Model Canvas and the Lean Canvas. Afterwards, we compare the two tools again to see how they differ in a practical setting.
  • Do a mapping exercise with ready-made stickers for canvasses that you can download and use in your own Business Modelling Workshop
  • Take you through how to organize an awesome Business Modelling workshop, using the sets of slides and materials you will get access to
  • Provide you with insights and discussions on how to deliver a Business Modelling Workshop 100% remote, complete with an example of how to do a sticker exercise using free tools.
  • We also provide advice for adapting the Business Modelling Workshop to various settings, whether you're an intrapreneur, a coach or an educator.

After this training you will be uniquely qualified to turn a Playing Lean workshop and a Business Modelling workshop into a great event for your clients or students, remote or onsite.

By finishing this training you will be able to help your clients or students understand Lean Startup and innovation, create interest in Business Model Canvas, go deep on the Value Proposition Canvas or run lean with the Lean Canvas.

You will also be able to give an introduction to Business Modelling, including why it is important and a set of motivational examples from real life. You will take them through a sticker exercise so that they understand what business modelling is all about and how to use it.

You also get to join the Facilitator Club, a unique community of Playing Lean & Business Modelling Facilitators. We share everything from ideas and techniques to workshop slides - all in the name of creating an ever better experience for players and workshops attendees.

Besides Iterate, Simen has also co-founded Otovo, Europe's leading startup in residential solar.

Bruno helps business leaders innovate profitably. He is the rare innovator who can claim that he's worked on a regulation-defying freight train and an award-winning board game. In addition to his corporate experience with brands like DNV GL, DNB, and Kongsberg, Bruno runs a community of entrepreneurs of several thousand members.
