Effective Big Rooms are only possible with the mindset and behaviors that break down the traditional silos to allow for cross-functional team collaboration and decision-making. Through the Effective Big Room webinar, you will gain a foundational understanding of the concept of a Big Room by learning the benefits, purpose, and implementation considerations. This webinar will lead you to understanding how to improve collaboration and drive transparency within your team to optimize project outcomes.
Join us for a 90-minute virtual CoP experience to engage deeply with independent Lean Coaches in a collaborative discussion.
Come with your most vexing Lean implementation or project problems and get expert advice. We will utilize breakouts to discuss topics in small groups, each led by a coach.
The Zoom link for attendance will be included with your registration confirmation email.
This is going to be a fun and interactive session and we will be capping registration at 70 in order to keep the groups small! As well, joining from your mobile device may be frustrating. For that reason, we are only allowing attendees to join from your computer. We also ask that everyone #turnyourcameraon and come ready to actively participate! It will enrich the experience for all participants.
