Limited Capacity seats available

When you have struggled to define a minimally viable result then you need a way to not only brainstorm ideas, but also a way to cut the unnecessary waste out. Pass on Perfection is an exercise for discovering and co-creating a solutions or products with what is minimally necessary. It mashes up Yes and… thinking for co-creation, and the essence of The Perfection Game (from the Core Protocols) for negotiation and prioritization in a collaborative round-robin game format.
This workshop will provide the opportunity to try out the exercise and give you the opportunity to co-create something you or another participant desires. We’ll share our perfection results, the learnings people had, and how we've used it to define products, teams, working agreements, Definitions of Done and Ready; including how psychological safety is created in its use.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Contribute without being emotionally held to ideas
  • Co-create solutions that give everyone a voice
  • Co-own removing waste in solutions
  • Build trust with positive collaboration
