On June 24-25, Jurgen Appelo will come to Kyiv with a brand new workshop for companies that need to change and innovate faster. This two-day workshop is a combination of facilitator-led instruction, peer discussion, and team exercises.
Most companies are expected to screw up and die within the next two decades. They will be replaced by a new generation of disruptive startups and scaleups except for the organizations that learn how to disrupt themselves.
How can we have something like “a startup culture” in our company?
How can we get new products to become fast-growing scaleups?
How do we reorganize ourselves for optimal execution and innovation?
Starting new teams and scaling up innovation is more critical than ever. The key to success is applying different practices in different stages of the innovation lifecycle. What works for a new business does not work for a mature one, and vice versa. In this workshop, you will nosedive into the major good practices for business leaders and product teams, from the moment they have an innovative idea to the day they will scale it up (or screw it up). Everything depends on the lifecycle stage of the product or service.
What You Will Learn
In two days, you will see that the basic unit for innovation is the strategic business model. You will understand how each business model evolves from exploration and effectiveness to exploitation and efficiency. And you will learn how managers, leaders, designers, and developers need to organize their work differently to create an organization that can reinvent itself continuously and that can scale tremendously.
The attendees automatically qualify to become an ICAgile Certified Professional in Business Agility Foundations (ICP-BAF).

This is a foundational workshop, meaning that no knowledge or certifications of lean thinking, business agility or innovation are required. This is not an expert-level course. However, having some experience with new product development and business management (in any role) will make attendance easier.
The class size is limited to 25 people.
In this workshop, participants will work in small groups to collaboratively complete exercises. They deepen their knowledge by discussing their findings with the instructor and their peers. And they play serious games to understand variations and possibilities for applying what they’ve learned in practice. The instructor is available full-time, leading the lectures, questions, and discussions.
The training is given in English. All training materials are also in English.
The workshop makes use of digital materials offered through an app on smartphones and tablets (Android only, for now). Attendees are suggested to bring their own, but some extra devices will be available for shared usage. Additionally, the instructor will bring some physical, printed materials to support the discussions, games, and exercises.
The workshop is based on the new book Startup, Scaleup, Screwup (to be published in April 2019) in which author Jurgen Appelo shares his most important findings after having interviewed dozens of people at Spotify, Zalando, Booking, Typeform, TransferWise, Flixbus, iZettle, and many other inspiring companies across Europe. He also reviewed a ton of literature on what it takes to start with nothing and end with a large, thriving company. Businesses all over the world want more innovation, with happier workers, and at a faster pace. It is time for them to learn how startups are agile and lean, and how they scale up their businesses.
Participants are entitled to a free copy of the new book (after publication) and will receive a signed, exclusive bookplate which can be placed in the book as evidence of participation.
Jurgen Appelo is the Founder/CEO of startup Agility Scales, the author of Management 3.0 and Managing for Happiness, and quite familiar with all the latest trends. He was once Entrepreneur of the Year in The Netherlands. He completed over EUR 1M of investments for his new company, and he is the founder of two other businesses, both of which are profitable. Jurgen was named Europe’s nr 1 Leadership Author.
There is no test, exam or formal certification for this workshop! After attending, participants may qualify to become an ICAgile Certified Professional in Business Agility Foundations (ICP-BAF). More importantly, they will be offered a path toward becoming a Certified Business Agility & Innovation Leader by starting and completing a journey to apply what they’ve learned in their organizations. This will be a certificate based on actual work experience, not workshop attendance! Participants will earn that certificate when their journey is completed (with a time limit of one year after the workshop).
