Intro to The Menlo Way®

Is it working in pairs? The Viking helmets? Our philosophy of making mistakes faster? The dogs and babies that bring joy to our workspace? What is it exactly that makes Menlo so special?

Come experience Menlo’s joyful and disciplined methodologies, inspired by lean, agile, and our own experiments, that are the foundation on which we have built our business culture. This immersive experience includes hands-on activities that span every aspect of Menlo’s internal processes.

Led by one of Menlo's co-founders (Rich Sheridan or James Goebel) and another Menlonian, this one-day workshop will give you a great sampling of The Menlo Way®. You will gain insight into how we have crafted simple, unambiguous systems that allow joy to thrive and elevate the human energy of our team to get practical work done (and done well). Discover how incorporating joy into every level of your organization can reduce unwelcome surprises that cause fear.

You will come away knowing how to:

  • Elevate the human energy of your team
  • Recognize fear in your organization
  • Define "purpose" for your team
  • Reduce unnecessary meeting load
  • Explain how Menlo's practices (pairing, etc.) reflect the values and culture we intentionally foster
  • Experiment with new ways of approaching visual management

The Intro to The Menlo Way® Workshop is great for all those interested in learning about the way Menlo Innovations operates and how we came to be this way. This workshop satisfies the PMP® requirements for earning 8 Professional Development Units (PDUs).
