We’ll connect you and your team with processes, tools, and the Red Hat experts who can help you use them to ramp up the pace of innovation.

How it works

How it works

Using open in the open

When it comes to fostering innovation, we recognize that carefully crafting the physical environment is as important as the framework and the team. In this transparent and open space, your residency will align cross-functional teams to shared goals and boost work visualization—then equip them with the best of open source tooling.

Since your residency is not locked into a prescribed group of methods or practices, you’ll be able to identify and chart the best path forward as a team.

How it works

Building trust to pursue innovation

Over the course of 1-3 months of intensive collaboration at a location of your choosing, the team will tackle a real problem that your company faces, identifying potential solutions through tools like event storming and impact mapping.

A social contract, pairing, mentoring, and other practices that are captured in the Open Practice Library will help cultivate transparency and trust on the team, essential ingredients for successful team forming.

How it works

Experimenting quickly to pivot toward success

Your team will work incrementally, using tools like our push-button infrastructure, which is automated by Ansible Playbooks to allow for rapid development and experimentation.

By solving one problem at a time on one technology at a time, your residency will break big ideas into small tasks as you build toward an integrated solution to demo to sponsors.

How it works

Incorporating feedback to hone your solution

We host Demo Days at the close of every residency to ensure the team is presenting to and getting ideas from the right stakeholders. This opportunity allows your team to share your progress while capturing learning opportunities and backlog ideas.

Armed with this instant and honest input, your team will start to build a roadmap for bringing your product to life.

How it works

Extending knowledge to scale for the future

The roadmap is supplemented by mentorship and enablement resources, including a Red Hat Learning Subscription . This benefit provides a year of unlimited, on-demand access to all Red Hat training courses, so you can add practical skills to the hands-on learning you’ve experienced through your residency.

By sharing this knowledge, you’ll enable and engage other teams to develop an approach that can be scaled throughout your business to proactively address other challenges.
