The 2 day event, including a Lean Start-Up WORKSHOP, tea & coffee breaks, lunches, a conference dinner and conference proceedings, at an all inclusive price of £299 + VAT.

Sean Buckland heads up the Lean Start-Up WORKSHOP. This Playing Lean workshop will kick start your learning. You get to play a game, have a lot of fun and learn about Lean Start-up. This session ties in with Sean's KEYNOTE ADDRESS. After the workshop, you have an overview of the method, a handle on the most important vocabulary and experience from applying your thinking to strategic innovation problems. In Playing Lean four teams of up to three players battle for control of the market. Can you build a new product that the customers want, faster than your competitors? It creates experiential learning, the kind players do not forget easily! When the dust settles, we debrief and evaluate how each team performed and the choices that were made during the game. What would they do differently?
