"So what's your plan in making this change succeed?" I'm sure you've heard that before if you’re an Agile Coach or Scrum Master tasked with introducing Agile, or it can also mean you’re a Change Management Professional who is looking for more effective ways to develop and execute change programs. This 2-day workshop, based on the book "Lean Change Management", is designed to help you discover more effective practices for introducing and managing change in your organization. You’ll learn by doing, not by reading PowerPoint slides! You’ll hear real stories about how to apply better, innovative practices to managing change.
What is Lean Change Management?
Where does Change Resistance come from and how to manage it?
How to use and create fit-for-purpose, lightweight planning tools, such as Change Canvases
How to lead change from any level in your organization
Many tools and practices that you can use right away
How to manage change programs by using Agile practices
Introduction: why are you here? What is the ultimate question you hope to have answered?
What is Lean Change Management, and how is it similar, and different, to how you approach change today?
Agile Change Management: Overview of the Agile values and principles, and how you can apply that thinking to change management.
Alignment: How to use light-weight tools for change readiness, change liftoffs, and ongoing facilitation of change
Incremental Change: How to move away from traditional ROI and towards reducing uncertainty by breaking down change into quarterly objectives with tangible key results.
Experiments: How to move away from change activities, and towards change experiments. This includes good practices for communication, creating alignment, providing status to change sponsors and more.
People: Why the notion of 'resistance to change' is wrong, and why the "70% of changes fail" is incorrect. We'll explore how different people respond to change differently, and how you, the change agent, can navigate that complexity
Your Own Change Framework: We'll take the learning from both days, and discuss what your own change framework could look like and you'll answer your own questions that were created at the beginning of Day 1.
