5 Simple Steps

Choose a Topic

Decide on what you want to learn as a group
Here’s how...
1. Gather Topic ideas: Before the initial kick-off session, ask the group to suggest some Topic ideas. These can be topics aligned with priority business/team needs at the moment, or just a topics specific group members are interested in.
Pro Tips: It’s a good idea to give people at least 3 business days to submit Topic ideas.
2. Agree on one Topic to focus on: During the kickoff session, use the tools at the bottom of this page to vote for Topics.
