Hi, has anyone done an organizational design workshop before? Meaning, looking at the current organization and finding out if the work planned for the next year fits, if the team setup is correct, and if not how the teams should change to fit the strategy and roadmap? Also if people need to be hired. Any tips on how to best tackle this would be greatly appreciated!
Hi Rachel, in product management we like to says that an organization is a ‘product’ like others and it have to be design in the same way. First an organization sprint have to set a commun vision and purpose to ensure that everyone is leading the same North Star ⭐️ Second, which challenge the organization have to unveil ? A HMW session is a must go 🧐 Third, the organization strategy based on past and present organization statements to develop the 12/18 months ‘enduring’ state / roadmap. Finally, turning the vision to Organization OKR (and teams OKR if necessary) and organization crash test to explore the “what if…” Hope this post helps and keep us in touch 🙌
@Amanda Perkins Hi there, until design thinking framework are just a mental combination of various activities, I would suggest to trust in you and your capabilities to adapt anything that serve your purpose 🔥 I could recommend few R SPRINT templates available for free on Miroverse to tackle the vision (sailboat) and define the right statements (How Might We) : https://miro.com/miroverse/profile/interstellar/ Trust in yourself and remember that the best framework will always be you 🙌
Yesterday was the BOARD DESIGN CHALLENGE hosted by the NeverDoneBefore 🤓 Beside this great community led by Myriam Hadnes, I found a space where to experiment with our R SPRINT workshop system distribution model in a safe and constructive environment. I learn tons of improvements and found back great fellas from the global community such as @LaYinka Sanni , Inês Veloso A Carriço, Beatriz Lerer and my Butter 🧈 companion, Said Saddouk 🔥 Regarding the board race ? No doubt we all won something in this Miro's chicken run 🥳 You can get the replay and all workshop resources below : 🎥 Video replay 👨🏫 Brainstorm board & resources 🏎️ Race boards @Keith Wasserman @David Newman the replay you were waiting for is here ❤️
Could you design a 3 hs workshop in only 15’ (without AI obviously) ? 🌶️ This is the spicy question we will try to tackle with Myriam Hadnes (the voice behind🎙️workshops.work) and I on the next NeverDoneBefore experience session. Do you know what's best ? After the 15' chicken run watching me using the R SPRINT workshop system.... It will be your turn to beat me 💪 Want to test me on a Miro's racing ? 🎫 Inscription link : https://www.addevent.co

I am new to this club and very excited to take part in conversations around facilitation and sharing tips and tricks to better engage our groups in trainings and workshops. I have started facilitating 5 years ago and boy! It has been a great journey where I found myself always learning and trying new things. It has been a blast but now I am ready to take it to the next level. This is why I am here. Looking forward to sharing with you... 😉
Salut @Alex Judges I’m ex Lyon entrepreneur based in Lisbon now. Still operating in France so welcome in this world class community and send me a private message if you like to connect for a zoom coffee ☕️

Hi @Eugene Aisien ! Welcome in the community ! In addition, to @David Newman link, have an eye on those R SPRINT on the shelter icebreaker on Miro : https://miro.com/miroverse/lego-avatar-mix-match/ https://miro.com/miroverse/me-my-state-and-i/ See you around 🙌
Being a Pastor, I believe Sprints are something that could help churches navigate difficult decisions and bring cohesiveness to the leadership. Has anyone had any experience doing Sprints for non-profits? If so could you supply and feedback or direction on how to transition from a product based sprint to a service or strategy based sprint. Thank you in advance.
Hey Guys, I´m excited to join the Facilitator Club and looking forward to getting to know you. I work as a remote facilitator from Ibiza, Spain and specialise in facilitating service design thinking workshops, leadership workshops, and remote meetings. My clients are almost all spread across Germany. I look forward to exchanging ideas with you and learning with each other. Saludos Markus
I'd love to know where Facilitators invest their money to elevate their sessions and businesses. Is it tools? Software? Continuous learning? Props & materials? Marketing? Hiring spaces? Working with co-facilitators? Or perhaps travel and networking? Let me know in the comments...
Invested a lot in training past years, after a lot in books and cards to « secure » my practices. Now much more on software services to accelerate my practice (Miro, Butter, ChatGPT +…). With the time and more confidence in my skills, I figured out that outcomes matters most than methodology’s paternity 🤓
Curious how people approach having music playing in the background during their workshops. • Do you put a lot of energy into designing a playlist? • Does it depend on the group with whom you're working? Feel free to share your thoughts! I included a link to a new song I discovered this week. Enjoy!
I used mostly music on webinar’s warm up, Icebreakers and energisers. Here the R SPRINT playlist ⚡️ : https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2nSpnUUcFnrFP8v6xwFk2t?si=g9Qw5gKGQDq9fdH0W76-mg&pt=4af795758a968ee17170a8bc11cf47b5
🙌 Hi 5 facilitators folks, because September usually means new challenges, the Miro Community asked us to organise a track dedicated to the remote team management. We’re super pleased, with my partner Nina Pozderec, to invite you to this community event where you’ll discover how Miro empowers teams to break silos and adopt new ways of working in a digital workspace. To make this session perfect, it will be powered by Butter and designed with the R Sprint workshop system 🔥 So join us with the registration link bellow : https://www.linkedin.com/events/remote3-1-craftingtomorrow-sdig7103304355235135488/
Hello everyone, I'm a Service Designer from Dusseldorf. After reading Design Sprint, I'm super happy to have found this gem towards Facilitation. I've never done facilitation, due to fear and imposter syndrome kicking planning a workshop. I look forward to learn and share with the community.
Hi @Jaineel Shah After years doing that job, I sill have the impostor syndrome. Only having a little bit of experience, a good community network and a better workshop toolbox such the R SPRINT system 🤓 So be my guest and welcome onboard !
In any meeting or workshop, I always start with some kind of activity to engaje people within each other and with the theme of the event. My favorite is Blind Portrait: a game where, in pairs, people try to draw each others faces, but without looking at the paper! That way, anyone can make a drawing full of character and surprises. In the end, each person have to choose their favorite drawing and introduce themselves with that! What about you?
I've been playing a lot with ChatGPT in the context of facilitation. Check the overall conversation by opening the images in this post one by one! This stuff is mind-blowing!!!!! Some conclusions: ✅ ChatGPT is wonderful for inspiration! Think of it as a co-facilitator ✅ You need to know what to ask! Problem framing and critical thinking are skills even more valuable in the age of AI ✅ The robot wont run the workshop for you ;) So the whole human element and real-time ability to adapt give facilitators even more value! ✅ I cannot wait to see the amazing abilities AI will give facilitators. One example is to use AI tools to quickly capture visually some exercises outputs without the need to be a great scribbler/sketch-noter. You can try it out at chat.openai.com :) How about you? What experiments have you been doing with AI and facilitation?
Hello everyone, I am looking for a "repository"/website/etc... that contains visually appealing miro boards that can be used for workshops. I am interested in finding boards that not only serve their functional purpose but also have an aesthetic appeal. If you do not know of such a repository, please feel free to share any boards that you have created and are proud of!🤩
Since we've started the R SPRINT for Miro template design journey, we were focused to reduce tons of hours spent on workshop preparation, keeping an eye on making our community grow and maturate 🌱 Today, WE NEED YOU to learn about your needs and behaviour to design the future of facilitation together 🔥 Take a chance with this community initiative, it won't take you long ⏱️ https://lwkbdz8ocxx.typeform.com/to/EyFTPE0v
@David Newman thanks for your participation and totally agree, we will improve the next version of this survey with more open question… and try a less eye catching title since after the Bauhaus, difficult to use ‘modern” word anymore 🤓
Hey Facilitators 👋 I'm compiling a list of the best resources for facilitators (free or paid) for potential future content, and I would like to ask you all if you have any recommendations. It could be books, materials, tools, blogs, podcasts, or communities. Any resources that you've come across that you find helpful as a Facilitator. I'd really appreciate your contributions to this post. Rebecca 💟
Did you knew that RSPRINT Workshop system is releasing more and more content on both MIROVERSE and FIGMA Figjam community ? They recently release a pretty cool sticker pack to share emotion on remote workshop ! Catch them all 😍
My colleague @Ryan de Metz found this amazing icebreaker which is PERFECT for Remote Workshops and we ran this in a coaching call earlier today and it was so much fun! We call it 'Intro-DUCK-tions' Yes, it's the best name ever 🐥😂 @Ryan de Metz you're a genius! 😂 After doing this exercise you’ll see how different we all think about a simple object. It's this difference in thought we look for in workshop participants to make sure we’re representing our target customers needs. It's super simple to run: Step 1️⃣: Have a Miro board (or any whiteboarding tool that you use for workshops) set up with spaces for each participants duck. You can also add a sticky note for people to add a name for their duck. Step 2️⃣: Send everyone this link Step 3️⃣: Encourage everyone to make their Lego duck Step 4️⃣: Download the duck Step 5️⃣: Drag the download of your duck to the Miro board (or any whiteboard tool you're using to run your workshop). Step 6️⃣: Re-size your duck and give it a name! Step 7️⃣: Introduce your duck to the group and tell them one interesting fact about it's personality Try it out and share your creation in the comments below by taking a screenshot of it. Be sure to give it a name! 🐥💛 ***Another variation of this icebreaker is called 'Draw a Duck' which another colleague of mine @David Finnegan shared in this community a few months back. To learn more about this and to see other people's amazing ducks, click here: https://www.skool.com/facilitatorclub/my-favourite-icebreaker-draw-a-duck?p=77e65c73
Recently I read a post by @Kerri Price in linkedin where she was asked if “Aren’t you worried they’ll copy your stuff?” when she readily shares her tips and tricks with other facilitators. Her answer is similar to mine so I decided to share here with you a video I use as reference to address this topic where Steve Jobs is quoting Picasso and saying: “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” What this means is that we are all stealing from each other! Aj&Smart steals from the Design Sprint and dozens of facilitation books, the Design Sprint steals from lean startup and agile methodologies, the business model canvas steals from visual thinking, and so on and so forth! Now, notice that stealing in this quote is better than copying! While copying would be the mere act of doing the same as someone else without making it your own, stealing is here referred to as the act of copying with care, property and adaptation to your own context. This is what Picasso was referring to. So steal away, avoid copying, and give credit where credit is due! This is how we evolve ;) Joao
Limits between inspiration and steal is a fine line. I recently decided to adopt Creative Commun licence on some parts of our template product RSprint to encourage more white label distribution “as is” better than copycat 🐈⬛ https://miro.com/miroverse/profile/interstellar/
I'm so happy to join the club guys and I'lll hope to share a lot of tricks, tools and methodology about remote collaboration and facilitation 😀 Thanks @Isabel Novais Machado to let me in and here my first crush : high quality templates on Mirovere Love from Lisboa 😘
