Please think about a problem that you face at your workplace that you would like to apply Agile and Lean Change principles to. If you can't think of a current one, it's fine to bring one from a previous role or company. You will be using a "One Page Change Plan" that is part of the Lean Change toolkit, to work through your problem.

Agile and Lean Change Management is a feedback-driven approach to achieve change through people engagement, where change is managed and owned by everyone.

Praise for this course

I was delighted to join the first Agile & Lean Change course … I’d recommend this to Change Managers wanting to incorporate agile & lean techniques; and to agilists who need to understand Change. It’s a powerful blend of both Change and Agile and you’ll leave with a kitbag of new, pragmatic tools to support your team’s learning and help them achieve better outcomes.

What I’ve noticed is that when I’m implementing UX into a business, we also need to talk Change Management. I took away from this course an understanding, toolkit and lean process to use in those conversations. The synergies between UX and Change processes were uncanny and how nicely they were extended in this session. I’d recommend this course if you want to continuously manage and monitor change across your business from the 80/20 perspective and get your 80% impact from 20% effort.
