How Strategos Online Seminars Work

Video Training CycleLearning Teams

Seminars use "Learning Teams" that work together in all activities. Each team consists of 2-6 people from the same organization who meet weekly for the live session. Each seminar may have up to 18 people in three learning teams all from the same company.

In designing these programs we have combined the popular  "Kaizen Event" or "Kaizen Blitz" with important principles from ""Action Learningg.""


 1) The weekly cycle starts in the virtual classroom online with the instructor. This session explains material from the workbooks and answers questions. The time for these sessions is mutually agreed. 

2) Each team has homework assignments of exercises and projects taken from the participant's work areas. Teams submit assignments before the next online session.

3) The instructor reviews assignments for discussion at the next session.
