We’ve talked a lot in these blog posts about what’s involved in launching a series of micro-battles. We’ve discussed how critical it is to align around the goal of reclaiming your Founder’s Mentality® and becoming a scale insurgent. We’ve also explored how to select the first wave of micro-battles and put in place both a Lead-Learn team (to manage the portfolio of battles) and micro-battle teams (to lead each initiative though the Win-Scale cycle).
What we’ve yet to discuss in any depth is the training agenda: how your company learns to run the system while adopting new—sometimes radically new—behaviors and ways of working. Micro-battles are microcosms of the company you want to become and are designed to promote transformational change from the inside out. Consequently, you need to build in training and coaching for everybody from the executive committee to the members of the micro-battle teams.
