AFTERNOON SESSION ONLY - Virtual Professional Development Day (PDD)
PM Session - Virtual Professional Development Day (PDD)
This workshop will discuss how the facilitator recently led a non-profit from a draft problem statement to actionable objectives using Design Thinking as the front end to implementing Lean Startup and Agile Development methodologies. The approach incorporated some familiar Continuous Process Improvement tools as well as some templates and techniques borrowed from the innovation ecosystem, particularly MITRE’s Innovation Toolkit. Participants will be given a chance to practice and share ideas on team formation, prioritization, and research of existing solutions as key waypoints on your journey to implementing your plans. The methods and tools can be applied to any organization, whether you’re just starting or looking for a fresh way to approach strategic planning.
