Collaboration Workbook Session

Online event

Our August event is being presented by Ed Wong and Craig Brown, further info on who they are is included below in the description. This event is part of a nationwide meetup, which has been promoted and will be attended by others around the country. This event will be 2hrs in duration. For the last few years, Ed Wong and Craig Brown have been diving into what Collaboration really means, collecting stories and responses to surveys, with the aim of discovering patterns across our industry. In this session, we will work through a Collaboration workbook where participants think about Collaboration via a series of different lenses. We will ask ourselves what collaboration means to us and share our stories of great collaborations we have been a part of. We will also look at aggregated data from previous sessions conducted in Australia and elsewhere. We are going to present this data at the Lean Agile Exchange event in September. Themes: Collaboration, Culture, Communication, International, Data, Research IMPORTANT: we will be trying out a new Australian developed video conferencing system called Video Facilitator. You’ll need to use a Chromium-based browser (such as Google Chrome, Opera, Brave or Microsoft Edge). Mobile devices can connect once you have downloaded the Jitsi Meet app, which you will be prompted to install.
