Intro to Project Management the Menlo Way (Virtual)

Wednesday, January 20 2021 at 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Learn how Menlo Innovations uses visual management tools like story mapping, planning games, and work authorization boards to ensure that daily tasks provide the most value to a project’s long-term plan by focusing on project priorities. While historically Menlo has found these tools work best on paper, the company has recently found ways to adapt its visual management processes to be 100 percent remote while maintaining the integrity, goals, and values achieved with its paper-based system.

In this four hour virtual event, you’ll tour Menlo and see these visual management tools up close (including recent adaptations to support remote teams). You’ll also learn to establish a road map for beginning a project and how to make meaningful course corrections to a project that support a long-term plan and avoid expensive scope creep that can lead to months of wasted efforts.
