Workshop Overview

Introduction and Agile Foundations
As this workshop emphasizes peer-to-peer learning, we will use the Personal Maps exercise from Management 3.0 in order to getting to know each other better. Furthermore, you will learn about ICAgile and its learning roadmap.

Lean Change Management Cycle
Lean Change Management Cycle

What is Lean Change Management
We will explore why a new way of change management is needed by looking at the 4 States of Disruption. You will learn about the Lean Change Management Cycle. By experiencing the Hot Seat exercise you will understand the difference between traditional linear change vs. modern feedback driven change management. Furthermore we introduce option charts to classify ideas for the change.

Agile and Change Management
You will learn about the history of Agile, especially in relation to change management. The modern Change Agent works as a facilitator, therefore we will create a change manifesto in order to facilitate the change initiative.

The Change Agent
By introducing the landscape for skill and the Agile Coaching Competency Framework, you will understand the ideas of the whitespace worker (being a change agent is a set of skills, not a role or title). In an ACI personal map and self-assessment you will explore your change agent strengths.

Ecosystem of Change
We will discuss the waves of change and how those affect the success of your change programme. By using the McKinsey 7s and other frameworks, you will understand how to see change as not a linear path.

We will explore how to use light-weight tools for change readiness, change lift-offs and ongoing facilitation of change. You will create a force-field-analysis and a perspective mapping in order to handle different view points in your organisation.

As the last step in the Lean Change Management cycle we will talk about experiments and more disruptive Hacks. You will understand how to move away from change activities and move towards change experiments including good practices for communication, creating alignment and providing status information to change sponsors. You will create some experiments, using the experiment tracker and plot Hacks on the Blast Radius chart to understand its impact.

Explore how different people respond to change differently and how you, the change agent, can navigate in this complex environment by understanding the Stacey Matrix and the Cynefin framework. As Lean Change Management is a transparent approach, you and your team will create a change canvas in order to create trust to the people affected in the change.



The workshop is conducted in Japanese and completely online by using Zoom and many other online tools (for example Mural). Therefore a web camera and good internet connection is required.
