Playground - The Virtual Dojo

Adopting – and adapting to – New Ways of Working requires trying new things. At Xellentro, we believe experimentation is the only path to innovation. To meet this need, we came up with Playground – The Virtual Dojo, through which we help hypothesize and experiment with business problems brought in by client teams. The teams then take back the learnings from this experience and implement them in their environments. Playground does not involve a structured course or structured lab. It is a collaborative space for teams to solve their business problems under the guidance of our SMEs.
