Tvivla have done training since 1990 starting with general PC knowledge and effective usage of Microsoft Office and Lotus Notes. Today we offer online trainings with a strong focus on Agendo discunt (latin for leaning by doing). Our sessions are approx 25% theory plus 75% practice and discussions. Another word for this concept is flipped classrom where we expect the students to do challenges (homework) in between sessions to enforce learning and avoid the Ebinghaus forgetting curve.

Ebinghaus forgetting curve mitigated by Tvivla steps

Tvivla steps

  1. Prepare content – make sure the topic is prepared and tailored for the students and their organisation. Ex: The trainers study the organisation and students skills on the topic and create the material.
  2. Inspire – make sure students are interested in the topic prior session. Ex. Send a link to a film on the topic.
  3. Teach the basics – what is it and why should we care? Minimize this theory part in favor of practice. Ex: 1-5 Powerpoint slides.
  4. Discuss – The students discuss what this means to them and become engaged. Ex: Discuss 2 and 2 the merge groups to 4 and 4.
  5. Create actions – For the topic and how we can implement this in reallity. Ex: Set up a war room.
  6. Practice – Try the action in the small groups as a safe space. Ex: Make a prototype and a role play around it.
  7. Feedback – from the other class on the practice.
  8. Challenge – Make sure its stick when you are back home. Report back to trainers within x weeks on the progress/outcome.

Our sessions are always facilitated by two trainers. One of these trainers can be your own Scrum masters, Agile coaches or Product owners so we in paralell train your future trainers and keep the knowlegde in house.

Training is just one part of your upskilling the knowledge. We also recommend a coaching effort in parallell aligned with the Toyota kata approach where improvement and mentorship follow the actual training. Reach out to us for more information.
