    What you’ll learn

    The practice of research has been maturing yet in many organizations it only means more researchers are hired with very little thinking about and investment in scalable systems to support researchers, research, product teams, and leadership. This workshop introduces four research systems: hiring, research machines, data products, and research space and gives attendees a taste of what research maturity looks like. Exercises reinforce learning and encourage attendees to go back to work and change things for the better.


    • Learn and practice performance-based hiring adapted to research.
    • Get familiarized with how quant and qual research is systemized.
    • Learn to define and create automated processes to enhance research impact.
    • Identify researchers’ unique workspace needs and how to solve for them.

    Who is the workshop for?

    Researchers and research leaders.

    At the end of the workshop, you will receive a certificate of completion.
