From the 30th of March to the 1 of April OptimalBI hosted Lawrence Corr
as he presented his Agile Data Warehouse Design Workshop based on the Business Events and Analysis Modelling (BEAM) methodology which combines brainstorming with data modelling to create Modelstorming
I was lucky enough to spend most of these three days behind the scenes organising catering, getting equipment ready and generally making sure the event ran smoothly. Our Shaun McGirr has written the first of series of blogs by our people on the workshop here
I learned about Lawrence Corr when I was given a copy Agile Data Warehouse Design
as part of the team which made our one day workshop An Optimal Introduction to BEAM
One of the things I got to do over the three days the workshop ran was take photos, so here is a selection of the best of them.
BEAM is based on answering the Who, What, Where, When, How and Why of an event.
The learners get split into groups and putting up PostIt notes, we have walls you can write on which make creat whiteboards for collaborating on.
Lawrence finds things which are missing and makes them found.
We gave the participants a short break to catch their breath, well some of them.
And then it was time for The Master to do his thing again.
All too soon it was time for an end of course photo.
And a beer.
I know Lawrence Corr is a smart guy, but as someone who spent three days making sure his workshop ran smoothly I can also say he is a very nice guy.
Thanks for the memories Lawrence and you're welcome back any time you want to come.
I'm really glad I got a photo of The Man signing The Book.
