In October 2015 Jill Forbes from National Leasing reached out about getting some help with using a change canvas in her organization.

About a year later she wrote a story about what had happened so far.

This week’s podcast, and video chat, closed the chapter of the book! Jill and I explore:

  • how did you get started with your change canvases?
  • how did people react to formalizing change management for the first time?
  • how deep did you go while exploring who was affected?
  • has IT change gotten easier because we’re used to software changing all the time?
  • how did operational readiness happen?
  • how did visualizing the change help?
  • what outcomes did you get, and what were the lessons learned?

In her spare time, Jill used to play slo-pitch and skydive. Now she makes music, shuttles her two daughters to their multitude of activities (love them!) and probably watches too much Netflix with her husband.
