Event description


Playing Lean Facilitator Training

Teaching Lean Startup can be challenging. That's why we made Playing Lean in the first place! With an entertaining game to drive learning, the process is more engaging and the lessons last for longer.

Train the trainer

Our goal is for everyone to be able to buy a game and play it with friends and colleagues. Organising full workshop may be a different matter. Unless you already have a setup where Playing Lean fits in nicely, you may consider attending an official Playing Lean Facilitator Training.

You see, we now have years of experience using Playing Lean at workshops and conferences all over the world. Wouldn't it be great if you could use our experience to improve your own facilitator game?

Facilitators are working hard

We will give you all our secrets, including how to:

  • Introduce Lean Startup before starting the game, using the official set of slides that you will get access to. This includes 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 table, 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.

  • More than that, we'll let you be the facilitator for a while and give you direct input on your own style!
