Thursday 20th June, 17.30-19.00 BST.
Agile Working and project management skills are at the heart of most successful innovation. The challenge of Agile for many organizations is how to manage visibility of the whole programme alongside the sprints.
Agile for Distributed Teams is the third of a new Series of bi-monthly facilitated evening workshops on QUBE for the major projects community. We’ll explore ways of adopting Agile in a way that enables everyone to contribute; allows you to keep an audit trail, without stifling creativity; helps individuals who are distributed on different sites (even in different countries or time-zones) feel part of the same team; encourages and facilitates product owners to remain connected with their teams throughout the process.
The sessions are designed to encourage you to take away some insight you can use – a technique, an example, a sense of how others do things or simply a confirmation of your own intuitive approach. The sessions will also help you build and extend your professional network as well as develop your skills on collaborating and co-working in a virtual environment.
QUBE @ Work is open to members of the Major Projects Knowledge Hub and Major Projects Association communities.
You’ll need a laptop and a PC, with a set of in-ear headphones and microphone (as you would use for your telephone). Once you have downloaded QUBE https://qube.cc/1-install-qube/ we’ll guide you through the process of learning to work through an avatar (your QUBOT) and you’ll be ready to go.
Further events in the Series
Whilst the precise theme may be subject to change, the dates are now set, so add them to your diary and we’ll keep you posted as each workshop is given a title. Once you are registered on QUBE, there’s no need to re-register, you will be able to go straight into the workshop Qubicle and you meet up with other workshop delegates to pick up on conversations or work you have started, at any time, in between the workshops.

What can you expect from QUBE @ Work?
These regular workshop sessions will provide you with an opportunity to explore and develop personal and organizational approaches to working in major projects. We aim to generate an output from each event that you can take back and share with colleagues. You’ll also have the opportunity to experience (and practise your skills) of working in a virtual environment. Finally, this is an opportunity to meet and work collaboratively with your peers from across other major projects.
Comments from delegates on the first QUBE@Work Session on Stakeholder Storytelling, which took place in February 2019:
“I really enjoyed using QUBE for the first time. My head is buzzing with ideas.”
“You’re working with people you wouldn’t normally work with and you’re getting some work done in the space”
“I’ve not experienced anything like it. Thank you!”
