“I love the change canvas, it’s more of a conversation tool, less about creating heavy duty change plans, and it still documents things and keeps people aligned.” – Barb Heller, Organizational Effectiveness Consultant

I hosted a study group with the organizational effectiveness team at a fortune 100 company, and this was one of the comments from Barb, who loved the idea of using change canvases to create and communicate organizational change strategies.

Transparency and communication are the two most overused words in change management. If you aren’t transparent about the changes you’re implementing and you’re not communicating them, how else would you expect people to align to the change strategy? 

If you answered “create a Sharepoint site!“, sorry, go directly to jail and do not collect $200!

Barb felt change canvases were key for co-creating strategical change initiatives and also for communicating them. And she felt they work much more effectively than the traditional approaches of using documents or intranet sites.

I began my career as a web developer when Cold Fusion roamed the earth. Over the following years, I moved into management, Agile Coaching and consulting. The bumps and bruises I collected along the way helped me realize that helping organizations adopt Agile practices was less about the practices, and all about change.
In 2008 I attended an experiential learning conference (AYE) about how people experience change and since then, I’ve been writing, and speaking, all over the world about helping organizations discover more effective practices for managing organizational change.
