If machines can think, understand and recognise, cars don’t need drivers, holograms make real what’s not and the internet of things is in everything … what is left for us humans to do?
What can we do in our agile team roles that will bring the greatest value? According to the Institute for the Future (IFTF), Sensemaking is the #1 skill for 2020 and beyond.
Great news! As humans, we have a unique capability to make sense. Sensemaking is the "ability to determine the deeper meaning or significance of what is being expressed.” (IFTF)
Sensemaking helps us connect the dots, gain insights and gather up the requirements to make decisions and act. It requires us to think, map and then act.
So if we are to adapt to the VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) that constant change brings (both in our teams and organisations and in the wider world) we need to generate insights, use our ingenuity and create ideas like never before.
Whether you're picking up a subtle cue, have got a hunch, are generating ideas or seeing things from another person’s perspective, sense making is the skill that helps you join the dots to then ‘move on’ and make decisions.
This workshop session presents you with models, templates, discussion questions and practical tools to apply sense making in your role. You’ll be able to use these sense making skills alone, in teams, and with stakeholders, project sponsors, colleagues, clients and users to gain greater insights and connections.
Learning Outcomes:
  • - Understand the benefits to using sense making approaches in today’s rapidly changing environment
  • - Identify individual and team/collaboration applications for sense making in project, scrum and agile environments
  • - Identify the three key elements of contemporary sense making practice
  • - Learn 3 thinking techniques for sense making
