Online Workshops Are The New Walk-in Conference Rooms

The days of impromptu conference room sessions are over (for now)

Gone are the days (for now) of impromptu conference room meetings to “whiteboard” and work out strategic details. Getting alignment, sharing ideas, collaborating with a team — these were all things that we used to grab a conference room for. But with everyone at home during COVID-19, we don’t have that option.

At Modus, we have been remote-first since inception. And we have learned how to do things — especially collaborate — as it is critically important to be on the same page so we are building the right software for our clients. As such, we have developed a diverse palette of workshops. The beauty of workshops (done right) is that everyone has the opportunity to contribute, and we all get together to focus on a single outcome.

Fortunately, there are many places you can find the right workshop to run for your team, situation and desired outcome. I have compiled some good resources to find workshops to run — these can vary from team building to organizational strategy to product strategy and user experience.

2022 Resilience Tech Report for SXSW Preview

Howdy! Back in 2015, I started sharing everything I’d recently learned into a kind of “music album” of knowledge to drop at SXSW. It’s a side project that hasn’t left my side, thus far — I guess it saves me time so I don’t have to write another book :+). In a nutshell, the science of resilience turns out to be as complex as the science of design. This is my first crack at decoding it.
