Event Storming workshop for facilitators and modellers

Expert workshop is something more than a training. Workshop is focused on client's project.

Code: ddd-workshop-meta
Category: DDD Workshop
Format: 20% lecture / 80% workshop
Duration: 2 days
Target audience: sm
Enrollment: Groups, companies
Venue: Client's office.

The training aims to prepare participants for the role of modeller and facilitator they will play in the organization.

The first day is to learn about advanced techniques in the training domain.

During this day, we strive to understand not only what to do, but also why in one form and not another. We explore various cases and problems that arise during modeling sessions related to both the domain itself and the session participants.

The goal for the second day of the workshop is to practice the discussed topics in a safe environment. To do this, you will need a sample company process and an associated internal expert(s). For example: purchasing processes, recruitment processes, etc.

It's all about the content.

  • understanding the modeling process at the meta level (modeling how people model)
  • non-trivial problems and real-life examples
  • selection of techniques for the problem class and session participants
