The Agendashift book (part I) goes to press on the 11th

When I say “press”, I mean that it will be available for purchase and download in multiple formats from

The teaser:

How do you bring about continuous transformation, and how do you do it without resorting to the questionable top-down and bottom-up approaches of the 20th century? Agendashift describes an inclusive, values-based, and methodology-neutral approach fit for the 21st century, based on genuine participation and integrating the best of modern techniques.

And the main blurb:

Imagine… everyone able to work consistently at their best:

  • Individuals, teams, between teams, across the organisation
  • Right conversations, right people, best possible moment
  • Needs anticipated and met at just the right time

Fun to imagine, but how do you begin to bring that kind of Lean-Agile vision to life?

This book has some answers, exploring new ways to scope, launch, or re-energise your Lean-Agile transformation, integrating some powerful techniques from Clean Language, Cynefin, Agile, Lean Startup, A3, and Kanban.

Modelled on the Agendashift transformation mapping workshop, this book covers:

  1. Discovery – identifying strategic goals, obstacles, and outcomes
  2. Exploration –  prioritising areas for attention, generating outcomes, agreeing scope and approach
  3. Mapping – building your transformation plan
  4. Elaboration – generating options; framing and developing actions
  5. Operation – organising for continuous transformation

Read this book if any of the following apply:

  • You’ve an interest – whether as a practitioner or potential sponsor – in Lean-Agile change (perhaps under a banner of “Agile transformation” or similar)
  • You’d like to see what a 21st century change management approach can look like, and how that might inform your work as coach, consultant, or some other kind of change agent
  • You’d love to see a model for Lean-Agile change that properly reflects Lean-Agile values and demonstrates Lean-Agile process and thinking in operation
