EventStorming Facilitation Virtual Workshop with Paul Rayner

  3 days


Do you want to enable your team to collaboratively model complex and changing domains, work together to identify bottlenecks and prioritize solutions, transition to designs that enable rapid and frequent software delivery?

Meet EventStorming, a collaboration modelling technique that will help you gain a deeper understanding into your domain.

In this hands-on and interactive virtual workshop, Paul Rayner will teach advanced EventStorming Facilitation skills spanning from large scale business discovery to collaborative solution design at the team level.

EventStorming Facilitation Virtual Workshop with Paul Rayner

By the end of this workshop you’ll be equipped with advanced EventStorming facilitation skills spanning from large scale business discovery to collaborative solution design at the team level and practice planning an EventStorming session for your own context.

This course will be offered virtually over 3 half‑day sessions of 3 hours each.

What used to be an immersive in-person experience of collaborative modelling will not be viable for a while. However, in a work-from-home world the need for a collaborative approach to envisioning and designing new services and processes is stronger than ever.

The workshop is held using Zoom and Miro in each session. After every workshop session you’ll have time for deep-dive discussions during optional “office hours” sessions with Paul, your instructor. Upon finishing the class you will receive an electronic certificate of achievement.
