The Lab is partnering with the University of Massachusetts – Lowell to deliver agile strategy training to members of the faculty and staff at the University. the training involves the Lab’s popular Strategic Doing 301, which introduces participants to the disciplines of agile strategy through an engaging 2.5 day workshop.
This partnership grew out of the Lab’s work on a national science foundation grant led by Stanford University. That grant, called Pathways to Innovation, encouraged faculty teams to develop new collaborations that would introduce innovation and entrepreneurship into the undergraduate engineering curriculum. Based on its experience with Strategic Doing during that grant, team members at UMass Lowell approached the Lab about conducting a Strategic Doing training on their campus
The 301 workshop takes participants through the 10 simple rules of complex collaboration. Within each of these rules, participants participate in exercises designed to encourage them to reflect on how they might apply the rule in a particular situation.
The Lab is offering the 301 workshop on the Purdue campus November 29 – December 1. Learn more here.
