Interestingly, most organizations don’t exactly know what they do, how they do it and why. So how can we even start to improve the way we work together without knowing this?
In this workshop we will bring clarity by visualizing your workflow(s). Applications are numerous. You can use this information as a tool itself to improve management, train teams and new colleagues or even to show clients how you will help them and why they should choose you. We can use the outcomes as input for toolkit development or to further design your workflow as a communication tool.
This workshop is designed for the following challenges.
TIP: to help you ‘think’, select the challenges that apply to your case.
- Insight in what we do and how we do it: our workflow(s)
- Improve efficiency
- We want a more intuitive way to communicate and collaborate with clients
- Turn our expertise into visual thinking tools
- We need a way to train and bring new team members up-to-speed
- Have more control over the quality of our services throughout our organization
- Turn our skills into new products, services or revenue streams
Everything we do is based on lean startup and design thinking techniques. This means we solve challenges in loops: processes that can be repeated until a solution is designed, tested and proven (or not). Build – Measure – Learn. The blueprint behind every session.
Every organization does a lot of things. Mostly these workflows are one big spaghetti of parallel, serial, recurring and overlapping processes. Let's choose so we take a bite of spaghetti we can chew during this workshop!
Interestingly, most organizations don't exactly know what they do and how they do it. Over the years we've developed a fun and effective way of mapping workflows. We won't stop asking until we've unraveled the whole process and created clarity!
In todays sharing economy there are already so many tools out there to help you structure your thoughts. We have hundreds on our radar to help you in this search: Every step of your workflow might already have a solution. Don't reinvent the wheel, let's benefit of everything that's already out there!
Are there steps in your workflow that don't have a visual tool to speed things up yet? Let's sketch and create new ones to put to the test!
