BIMA Masterclass | Building Brilliant Collaborations

BIMA together with Curve brings you a masterclass on Collaboration.

Every organisation needs to be collaborative; among internal teams and with external partners. Successful collaborations lead to better quality, more original outputs, improved productivity and people enjoying their work. However, collaboration doesn’t just happen on its own.

This masterclass will look at different models of collaboration- from collaborating to create, to collaborating to improve speed to market, we will demonstrate how different kinds of outcomes can be achieved, and the different styles of working that can be used. We will help you to understand what collaboration environment you can create to achieve your goals, and offer you a strong foundation for your own collaboration strategy.

The hands-on format will have everyone working in small teams using lego and creative thinking techniques to develop practical ideas that can be taken away and used immediately.

At the end you will learn:

– How collaboration works

– How to create a collaboration model that works for your specific goals

– Multiple methods for designing environments that support collaboration

– Some practical tools and ways to improve your team’s productivity and performance

Places are limited to one member per comapny. Tickets are free for BIMA members or £30 + VAT for non-members. To get your BIMA Member discount code email
