Workshop Overview

This Virtual Lean Change Agent Workshop is designed to show you how to use Agile and Lean techniques to facilitate change. Today’s change managers and leaders want to know how they can change faster to keep up with a constantly increasing pace of change and disruption.

Lean Change Agent is an experience designed to help you take the best ideas from agile, lean startup and design thinking to help you create an approach to change management that is compatible with your organization, and the change you’re working on. Lean Change Agent will help you answer questions like:

  • How can we integrate agile and change management? 
  • How can we apply agile practices to complex change programs?
  •  How can we reduce uncertainty by iterating our way through change?
  •  How can we reframe resistance to change by changing how we think about change?

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how to apply Agile and Lean techniques to Change Management
  • How to use Agile techniques within your existing Change Management framework
  • How to reframe resistance to change to response to change
  • How to modernize your change management practices
  • Combine ideas from Lean Startup, Agile, OD and CM to develop your own contextual change framework
  • Alternatives to ROI and project management thinking
  • How to use light-weight planning and measurement tools such as Change Canvases, OKRs, Perspective Mapping and more.

Workshop Outline

This course is conducted completely online through a combination of self-study and virtual facilitator led sessions. Upon registration, you will be given access to the official Lean Change Management self-study site where you can get started with the course content.

There will be six 90 minute virtually facilitated sessions occurring once per week over period of the course. During each session we will complete the homework exercises that you will find in the self-study training.

Each of the six faciliatted sessions will be held on Wednesdays from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM (PST).

Oct 21 - Virtual Session 1 - Introduction to Lean Change: What is Lean Change Management, and how is it similar, and different, to how you approach change today?

Oct 28 - Virtual Session 2 - Ecosystems of Change: Explore what your change is: Who and what is affected, to what degree, and what relationships can you leverage to help drive your change forward

Nov 4 - Virtual Session 3 - Alignment: How to use light-weight tools for change readiness, change liftoffs, and ongoing facilitation of change

Nov 11 - Virtual Session 4 - 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.

Nov 18 - Virtual Session 5 - 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

Nov 25 - Virtual Session 6 - Putting it All Together: We’ll take the course learnings 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.
