EventStorming Master Class

Putting business, software & user experience experts on the same page

November 5th & 6th in Lausanne

with the founder of the method : Alberto Brandolini


EventStorming is a workshop format invented by Alberto Brandolini 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 age, EventStorming was greatly defined by Dan North : « In any EventStorming session of all different kinds, everyone knows what everyone else knows ».

 This workshop format comes in different flavours, that can be used in different scenarios:

  • to assess health of an existing line of business and to discover the most effective areas for improvements;
  • to explore the viability of a new startup business model;
  • to envision new services, that maximise positive outcomes to every party involved;
  • to design clean and maintainable Event-Driven software, to support rapidly evolving businesses.


EventStorming is interdisciplinary. The specialistic notation is dropped in favour of an incremental lo-fi approach that allows an inclusive approach while drinving the exploration towards the most sensitive areas. Every participant will actively contribute

It is not the domain experts knowledge that goes to production, it is the assumption of the developers that goes to production
