CREATING AND RUNNING YOUR DOJO

 

Faced with the challenges of multiple new technologies, processes, and ways of thinking, many organizations are embracing Dojos - immersive learning centers - as a great way of quickly upskilling their staff and creating a cultural and organizational transformation.

But How Do You Start?....

Rather than being prescriptive, the workshop will guide participants in defining a strategy and format that enables them to create a Dojo meeting the specific learning goals of their organization. The workshop covers Dojo values, formats for offerings, and practices.

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how to execute the entire Dojo life cycle including intake process for teams, chartering Dojo engagements, the format of the engagements, and post-Dojo follow-up

  • Defining your initial Dojo offerings

  • Designing your Dojo’s physical space and determining equipment needs

  • Marketing the Dojo inside your organization

  • Defining Dojo metrics you will use to show the value your Dojo provides

  • Strategies for hiring and growing Dojo coaches, product owners, and operations managers

Participants will leave this workshop with all the knowledge they need to create a Dojo in their organization. Like the Dojo itself, the workshop is an immersive learning experience combining presentations and interactive experiences covering all aspects of creating and running a Dojo.
