Lectures & Workshops
From 3.4 p 30
For topics that are common to all or most companies in the incubator, traditional forms of training are a good option. Sometimes this will mean a lecture, where an expert shares theoretical knowledge spiced with examples. Even when education itself is fairly theoretical, it adds a lot of value to encourage teams to discuss the topic openly. Sharing opinions, thoughts and experiences builds a community, and forces people to think about the topic from different points of view.
When possible, it is advisable to organise training in the form of workshops. They are even better for building a community than interactive lectures, and when companies participate as teams, it can also help to build their company culture. Workshops take practical work forward, which is great for busy entrepreneurs. The practical application of theoretical knowledge will be clear to everyone who learns it at a workshop, and so hands-on learning is likely to stick.
