BAM Special Programme: Explore Industry Case Studies

Dive into a case study. Is there a prominent business in your area undergoing an agile transformation? Is there a case study from the Business Agility Library that intrigues you?

 

Analyze them and see what you can learn.

Preparation

Select 3-4 case studies from the Business Agility Library. These should be stories that resonate with the local community and expected audience. Share these case studies to the audience as pre-reading (or pre-watching).

Some of the case studies have print versions. Optionally, print these to hand out to attendees at the event.

Fully familiarize yourself with the case studies and prepare a series of open-ended questions for the audience. You may want to arrange a time with Evan to discuss the background to the case study. Contact us here to arrange a time.

Room Setup

Setup the room with a large circle of chairs. This is an open discussion and it is best to avoid anything that limits free and open discussion.

Facilitation Process

Spend 10-15 on each case study. During this time you should cover the context of the company and a brief overview of the case study. If people haven’t read the case study you may spend more time on it. Open up to the audience for discussion.

  • What insights did you get from this case study?
  • What was your favourite part?
  • How could you apply that to your organisation?
  • How did the case study make you feel?
  • Which part of the case study do you feel are wrong or inappropriate for your organisation?
  • What changes would you make if you were to take a similar approach?
  • Are there common themes across all the case studies?
  • How did this story change your opinion?

Ideally a different host should present each case study.

Post-Event Mailout
