Sometimes team feel they have no control over their own processes when Agile is introduced to the organization. A good practice to help teams align to the organization’s purpose for implementing Agile is facilitating a well-structured conversation that helps teams figure out what’s in it for them.

Team change canvases provide a mechanism for structuring the conversation and documenting the outcomes that teams can use to take ownership of their own change experiments.

I interviewed Steffan Surdek of Pyxis at Agile 2015 about how he used change canvases to help teams realize how much ownership and control they have over their own destiny.

This interview was live, and un-scripted and captured on my trusty iphone.

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.
