Untangling Wicked Problems
Playbooks for digital transformation teams
Wicked digital problems plague digital transformation and innovation projects. You can read my blog post on these issues Medium, or watch me give the talk at NUX5 2016. These workshops are designed to arm participants with the tools and mitigations to help prevent some of the more obvious issues and smooth the path for when bigger problems crop up.
Each workshop tackles a slightly different angle on the issues. If you think your organisation would like to host a custom workshop, get in touch.

Your use of real life experience and frank explanation of when work went wrong in the past really helps land the value of your insights, tools and frameworks.

Embracing collaborative digital cultures (You, Agile and the business)
The onset of continuous development and Agile delivery approaches has created a need for businesses to adopt a strong digital product practice. This has expanded to incorporate design, research and broader business activities. However it is not always easy to see how to make best use of Agile practices to create strong cohesive and effective teams.
This workshop covers:
Understanding the business and its needs (picking the right methodology)
How to do big picture vision and design in Agile
Working well in a multi-disciplinary environment
Effective pre-planning and feedback loops
Keeping an eye on the metrics
Navigating unknown unknowns
The business case on continuous improvement
Preparing to Transform
Organisations that need to transform existing processes and services, have a much bigger challenge than nimble start-ups. Taking the decision to launch a digital transformation programme can often grate with the daily task of keeping the existing business going. Much of the rhetoric will also clash with the realities of market drivers, budgets and financial reporting.
This workshop aims to teach how to to map your existing organisational landscape effectively, taking care to identify places that will need greater care and attention, whilst also making space for creative opportunities.
This workshop covers:
The core imperatives of a successful transformation programme
How to run effective Discovery activities
Considerations for finance and budgets
Calculating your Customer Experience Debt
Overcoming agendas to set a coherent vision
How to report on progress in a language the C-suite will understand
Making promises you’re more likely to keep
