Managing to Learn Remotely: A3 Management - At Your Pace, At Your Place

Learning online does not mean learning alone. Avoid travel costs and maximize peer learning and instructor face-to-face time in an online environment that helps you to breakdown problem-solving using the A3 format. By attending this remote workshop, you will be led by seasoned coaches one step at a time, allowing you the space & time you need to reflect and apply the learning along the way. This approach helps you align around a problem at your company that is informed by real-time facts and your colleagues' knowledge. Along the way you will receive feedback and support from peers and senior coaches.

This class is designed to maximize individual attention to your problem & your learning needs. To foster a deep learning experience, class size is limited.

Coaching & Office Hours: 

First, our live classes include smaller break-out sessions so that you can receive coaching and feedback in a small group setting. Secondly, we will post discussion questions for you and your peers to interact with between sessions. Lastly, you may schedule office hours, giving you the opportunity for individualized feedback. 

Technology Used:

Slack: all our documents, assignments, and discussions will take place here. Slack is user-friendly on computer, tablet, and mobile device. This will be a closed, private group, allowing you the freedom to learn with your peers both during and after the course. 

Zoom: we will host our live meetings on zoom. (Links will be posted on Slack).

FAQs:

What if I cannot attend all of the live meetings? We will record the meetings and post a link to the recordings on Slack. However, you will get the most value by attending the live sessions. 

I’ve never used Slack or Zoom; are they easy to navigate? Both of these applications are user-friendly. We will do all of the registering on the back-end for you so that you can simply download the app and go. We have been experimenting with both technologies amongst users of various ages and backgrounds and have received positive user feedback for both platforms.

What if I do not know what problem I need to solve? This is often the case. If you are able to define a problem to solve with your supervisor, employees, and colleagues ahead of time, that is ideal. However, the majority of our learners come to this class without a clearly defined problem. That is what the first part of the class is all about.

Will taking this class solve the problem that I bring forth? In some cases, yes. In most cases this class will help you frame the way you address the problem by helping you recognize when you or a colleague is jumping to a solution or defining a problem in terms of a pre-determined solution. This class will set you up to attack your problem from an informed angle while aligning key stakeholders, thus setting you up for success.
