The Way is spreading like wildfire and we could not be happier about it. The methodology, in particular, has unprecedented buy-in from all levels. We get questions multiple times a day about how and when teams can pair with us. At first we were trying to accommodate all requests, and to do so by reiterating that it was an all or nothing sort of deal. We found that not only was this impossible with time and resource constraints on our end, it was proving to be impossible for those interested to get in the door. This defeats the entire evangelization portion of our two-fold mission. So, as is common practice, we went back to the drawing board and created a pivot.
It is with great pride and excitement that we introduce to you the Dojo Path to Enlightenment, a step by step (or belt by belt) program that outlines for you and your team EXACTLY how to adopt The Way. This four-belt program will lead your team to certified Dojo status (i.e. enlightenment) with the intermediary step of becoming a Tyro. Through ‘customer’ discovery and framing exercises, we have discovered that many teams within the organization want concrete goals that can be attained during the journey toward becoming a Dojo. So, we gathered this feedback and created the Tyro [powered by Dell EMC Dojo], which stands as the physical manifestation of the accomplishment reached by those who have completed the first two steps of the Dell EMC Dojo Path to Enlightenment. This is a center where practices as outlined by the Lean Startup and Running Lean are understood and implemented.
