Think like a start-up [club]
Think like a start-up [club]
Format (for 90 min, tool and methodology sessions)
Start with an overview session - clarifying terms, explaining format, intro/ice-breaker, get to know each other,
After things have bedded in, Get guest speakers in from external consultancies to show us best practice .... :explode:
Friendly fin-techs like Flock?
Follow up each session with an email summary - curated links and useful templates, maybe a photograph? - drive people to the web page to access?
Post materials on Neil & Maddy's Matix sharepoint page, and get into the learning catalogue?
Talk through what the tool / technique is, when it's best used? when to avoid? go through an example?
Ask for ideas about how it could be used within S&I initiatives?
Get feedback - do people think they will apply it? if not why not?
Each week - announce what will be covered the following week, and then research it / prepare the email.
Establish an idea of what the club members already know, what their roles are, what they are looking for from the club
Kick it off with an intro email, outlining the terms of the group, and testing whether people are interested in committing time to it, and changing the way they work?
start the following week with a recap on the previous topic, and find out if anyone's had the cause to use it?
Open invite ... anyone who wants to learn. - Quorum of members targeted for inclusion. Try and get big audience for the shorter sessions, focused team for the half day ones.
Maybe some of IT?

Clearing the path to enable us to 'use' the tools and methodologies to design what to build / make the case for buiding it to budget holders?
Clearing the path to enable us to get things built
Doing ... actually using the techniques, applying the methodologies on real business problems
Ideas from CI's 'Idea gathering' exercise
Timing of sessions - this will probably need to vary, depending on type of session
Application / using the framework and tools
90 minute session :silhouettes:
hold it in the afternoon - when hub isn't too busy.
half a day session :pencil2:
hold these on 45th floor? or external location? May need a degree of confidentiality depending on contents of real-life problems being examined?
can't set these up until we have problems to solve - suggest we assign accountable people at the per idea/problem level
Hold it in the hub - gets attention of passers by, keeps it low-key
Depending on turnout - could write on the walls, or glass? - could use the area near the hub that's an empty space?
We need a playbook for initiating and delivering change ....
We need to be more strategic about where we place our bets - like a start-up does. We need to learn how to pivot, rather than just fail!
If this works - we can repeat in a way that catches non-TLB centric participants?
