Book Circle as a Service

A Facilitated Book Circle for Your Organization
See Available Options
Having trouble making continuous learning part of the day to day work?
Tested book circles but did not get it to fly over time?
We can help out with your Agile, Lean, Devops and Leadership learning journey in the form of facilitated book circles.

THE BOOK CIRCLES

Each book is supported by 6-9 sessions, led and facilitated by a subject matter expert, with vast experience of the subjects covered in the book. The sessions are all well prepared with slides to follow and additional experience based discussions and learnings.

We love learning. We love reading. We love exploring theories and practical problems with other engaged people. Book circles are the perfect combination of those passions. Informal, low investment, great sharing opportunity, easy to tie to local context.

You can invest in your staff by bringing in an experienced guide to run facilitated book circles, every week, fortnightly or monthly – the schedule is set up together with you so it suits you and your organization and staff. Bring this into your Communities of Practice, Guilds or Chapters to help with creating a learning organisation.
