Marijn teaches people of different backgrounds the skill of doing the things that matter in environments that are critical to performance.
Often his work involves organizations, software and customers. He brings these worlds together while teaching you and your colleagues how to do so.
Judge him on added value, it's the only metric that matters. You may call him a consultant, coach, trainer and entrepreneur, because that's what he is.
The first model a team comes up with often leads them down a particular path. That isn't much of a problem if the first model is any good. But often our first ideas aren't our best. How can you prevent bias towards your initial approach? What could you do to break free from the boundaries you first imagined?
In this hands-on you'll be working on a single problem but you'll be forced to re-imagine it multiple times with different constraints. In each round you'll be limited in such a way that you'll have to get creative and come up with vastly different models for the same problem space. At the end you'll see what the power is of an enabling constraint. The Monday after the conference you'll know that with a little digging and thinking you can come up with entirely different models for about any problem space.
