Event description


London, 7th - 8th September 2020. Trainer: Alberto Brandolini.
Brought to you by Avanscoperta.

Check out the new EventStorming Remote Modelling workshop with Alberto Brandolini. It will take place on 7-8-9 July 2020 from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm (CEST) each day.

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".

Target Audience

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.

What will 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.
