EventStorming Master Class - February 2019 (Milan)


EventStorming Master Class - February 2019 (Milan)

Milan, 18th - 19th February 2019. Trainer: Alberto Brandolini. 

EventStorming is a workshop format invented by Alberto Brandolini that promotes collaboration between different disciplines in order to solve business problems in the most effective way.

Course abstract

EventStorming is a workshop format that enables massive learning on complex business domains and promotes collaboration between different disciplines and across teams.

A visually effective problem-solving technique that puts everyone on the same page, EventStorming was greatly defined by Dan North: “In any EventStorming session of all different kinds, everyone knows what everyone else knows“.

What you learn

In this two-day workshop, we’ll practice three different flavours (Big Picture, Process Modelling and Software Design), applied to real-world business problems.

We’ll take into account the different perspectives (including the facilitator) in a process that spans large-scale discovery, to leverage collaborative design.

We’ll experience the how, and we’ll discuss the why.


Day 1 - EventStorming as a discovery tool

Quick kick-off: where are we and where we want to go

Real world Big Picture EventStorming, mastering complexity and unknowns in large-scale modelling

Managing conflicts, highlighting risk, and the problems really worth solving

The facilitator’s toolbox revealed

Improving our process exploring motivations of different actors

The Change agent’s perspective: why it’s going to be hard even when improvement is obvious, and how to deal with stalemates

Everything’s connected: Lean & Kanban, complexity and organization limits

Working with startups vs. working with established companies

EventStorming as a platform for problem-solving

ModelStorming: modelling everything without a clue (and yet deliver amazing insights).

Day 2 – Using EventStorming to design a system

Emerging System Boundaries: from EventStorming to Bounded Contexts

Process Modelling EventStorming: a cross-discipline platform for collaborative modelling

A different perspective on software design: the picture that explains everything

Making policies explicit. Discovering the hidden truth in business behaviour

Design around Value: hidden and explicit motivators

Software Design EventStorming: discovering key software components

Aggregates and transactional consistency: independent moving parts in a large system

Design around the bottleneck: changing the rules of the game

Blending User Experience Design and Service Design into Software Design

Triggering bullet-proof design with visible state

The transaction illusion

From sticky notes to working software. When to go for a sophisticated architecture.

People-aware / Background agnostic

EventStorming is interdisciplinary. The specialistic notation is dropped in favour of an incremental lo-fi approach that allows an inclusive approach, while driving the exploration towards the most sensitive areas. Every participant will actively contribute.
