Agile Product Management Dojo

An Immersive Learning Experience with Clear and Quantifiable Results

Provide Your Development Teams with the Ultimate Learning-through-doing Experience Available, the Dojo

Most training programs involve students taking time away from work to learn a new skill through examples and simulations, leaving it to the student to apply what they have learned when they get back to work. There’s certainly a place for that style of learning, but it has its disadvantages as well.
A preferable option in some cases is coaching, which allows an experienced teacher to be on-hand as people work to help guide them to improve their skills, knowledge, and processes. But how do you scale coaching effectively? It’s not always easy.
Imagine a hybrid program where developers gather in an immersive “classroom” environment with two or more experienced coaches and a specified learning goal. Then, imagine they proceed through that targeted training and coaching process while working on the same work they’d be doing outside of the classroom. That’s the Dojo — an immersive learning experience with highly practical application and quantifiable results — and it’s an experience pioneered and perfected by the experts at Cprime.

What is a Dojo?

The word Dojo, meaning the place of the way, comes from Japanese martial arts. It is an honored place where students and masters come together for deliberate practice to develop their skills. Target was the first to adopt that concept for mastering product, lean, agile and DevOps (PLAiD).
DevJam, now Cprime Product Agility, helped them design the model and implement it. Since then, we have helped Fortune 500 companies create their own dojos.


Whether building software or not, understanding what you are building is critical to success. In Dojos, we focus on customer-centric, outcome-driven results. There is no point in building things faster if we are building the wrong things.


As the pace of change in the market continues to accelerate, our products need to be able to adapt quickly with it. We need both our people and our technology to be nimble enough to change with the shifting product needs.


As we learn to automate the menial tasks of development and give ourselves quicker feedback on our work, we free up time and energy to focus on the value add work. That leads to better value delivered safer, sooner and happier.

Taking Your Dojo Further

The power of the Dojo comes from the culture that thrives in it. It is a safe environment to try new ways of working, new product ideas, and new technologies. And, it’s intended to keep operating long after launch.

EXPERT COACHING – Our coaches have lived in the trenches of product development, whether as product owners and product managers or as software engineers and architects. They help the teams safely navigate change, and turn failures into stepping stones for the next success.

COACHING DEVELOPMENT – It is not enough for us to provide you with the coaches you need. Our coaches help you grow your internal coaching capabilities by coaching up the emerging coaches in your organization and building the structure to make that growth self-sustaining.

FIELD COACHING – Learning doesn’t end when a team leaves the Dojo. Having a coach in the field with them as they make that transition can help them sustain and strengthen what they learned in the Dojo, and push into a continuous improvement mindset.
