About this Event

Remote Playing Lean Facilitator Training

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.

But teaching Lean Startup, especially when traveling is restricted and social distancing must be practiced, can be challenging.

That's why we made the remote edition of the Playing Lean Facilitator Training!

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.

Now 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.

The training will happen on Zoom, over two days, with intense 3 hour sessions on each day:

December 2, 1800 to 2100 CET

December 3, 1800 to 2100 CET

What will you learn in this training?

Playing Lean Facilitator Training is our most extensive offering where facilitators go through a full day of two half days of live training. Our members who have attended the training are uniquely qualified to turn a Playing Lean workshop into a great event.

We have rich experience in using Playing Lean at workshops and conferences all over the world. With over 100 workshops organized and more than 3000 attendees, we have a lot of tips and tricks we picked up on the way. In this training we share all our knowledge on how to run an awesome workshop - remote or onsite!

In this two-day workshop, we will cover 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 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.

What do other Playing Lean facilitators say?

"I've run this game in various companies and settings as a certified facilitator. Teaching Lean Startup using this game is definitely a lot more fun and better received than spending half a day trying to absorb the same material as a PowerPoint presentation."

Espen Vindegg, Senior Consultant and Project Manager

"I have been using Playing Lean game to teach Lean Startup principles for over a year for both corporate and startup audience. The game has very good dynamics that are well connected to real word practices. Therefore it is easy to connect situations from the game to those happening in real life."

Miro Hegedić, Researcher

"Playing Lean is a well thought out tool to introduce the Lean Startup concepts into new environments, allowing players to realize in a fun way how to "think Lean". A comprehensive and extremely playable game (almost addictive!), players will quickly understand the dynamics and enjoy a fun time while learning."

Jorge Castellote, Founding Partner

Workshop will be facilitated by Playing Lean creators Bruno Pešec and Simen Fure Jørgensen.

Bruno is co-creator of Playing Lean. He is an industrial engineer with ten years of experience with lean management, product development, corporate innovation and strategy from defence, manufacturing, and financial industries.

As a co-founder of Norwegian Lean Startup Circle, Norway’s largest Lean Startup community; program manager at Founder Institute, world’s best idea-stage accelerator; and global startup mentor for GAN; Bruno is an active contributor in the startup community.

He holds a master's degree in industrial engineering and management from UNIZG, specialization in production and quality engineering from NTNU, specialization in strategy from Ashridge, and has been trained by Toyota in corporate value creation and innovation.

Simen came up with the idea for Playing Lean back in 2014, on a client engagement for Iterate, a consultancy he co-founded and managed. With a background from Computer Science, he has gone on to found several successful companies.

Besides Iterate, now a well established player in Oslo and Playing Lean, Simen has also co-founded Otovo, Europe's leading startup in residential solar.
