Outside of their own company, employees have the freedom to try new things, make mistakes and learn from them in a safe space. They get to know innovative methods like design thinking and agile project management, and they test them on their own business project. They use tools like the lean-startup methodology to test new business ideas for market readiness. Back at their company with this entrepreneurial mindset, employees can drive the digital transformation forward and prepare their company for the future. You could book the room solely or with a trainer for your session as well.
