Workshop: Lean Project Management
CES#4 will give you the tools to create and manage a successful project with a workshop and interactive networking event hosted by Peter Powell form Team Academy. Come by to attend the workshop to work on your project or come by to network with the young entrepreneurial community of Maastricht.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Lean management methods are being implemented all over the corporate world in large and small organizations alike. From IBM to Airbnb, Lean methodologies empower those closest to the problem to solve them in an efficient, effective way, moving fast with minimal waste. In fact Lean methodology is so effective it has been a major contributor to the successes of businesses including Toyota, Facebook, & numerous others. However, though popular and far more effective than traditional project management methods, Lean is rarely applied to event based or non-profit projects. In this interactive workshop I’ll show how you can use the Lean build-measure-learn cycle in your projects for everything from team, to event management. During the workshop participants will learn the basics of Lean management by creating an initial prototype of (part of) their project, testing it, evaluating the feedback, and creating the next iteration based on this feedback. Please note: Participants should have a project they are currently working on which they can test/prototype with relative ease.

Workshop: Developing entrepreneurial skills with improvisational theater
An entrepreneur is someone that takes the initiative to take on a venture. This can be a business venture or a project with social impact. To be successful in this undertaking you will need organisational, communication and cooperation skills. But being an entrepreneur also means you need to take risks and overcome many obstacles. To do this you will also appreciate some qualities like optimism and creativity to enjoy the ride.
A good way to develop these skills, qualities and an optimistic mindset is improvisational theater. Because you develop them by experience, practicing real life situations and learning how to adapt to your situation. Improvisational theater gives the possibility to create a safe space to recreate real life situations where you can take risks and use your creativity to experiment with new strategies that may result in more desired outcomes.
