New: Unbenchmarking

A week ago we announced the Agendashift unbenchmarking service, in which we run your survey results against our dataset and identify areas of opportunity for you automatically. It’s our unique values-based assessment combined with machine learning.

For example, these three prompts clearly share some underlying issues, falling as they do some distance below the scores that our machine model would predict given the shape of this survey’s results overall and the correlations we have seen elsewhere:

You can access unbenchmarking in a number of ways:

Three meetups in three weeks (with one on video)

This month I did three UK-based meetups in three weeks – Adventures with Agile (London), Agile Yorkshire (Leeds), and Agile Peterborough.

At Leeds and Peterborough I did my interactive keynote Managing change in the 21st century: what we know & where we must do better. In London I facilitated a Discovery session, normally the first of five sessions in an Agendashift workshop. You can watch the video here.

Public workshops recent and future

My most recent public workshop was Lean-Agile Strategy Days, London, a collaboration with Karl Scotland. We’ll definitely be doing this again!

My next two are also collaborations:

Both workshops incorporate an Agendashift practitioner’s workshop. Super-early bird for the London workshop ends on July 26th – don’t miss out!

The book – don’t forget the book!

As described in What next after part I?, the recent work on machine learning is part of a bigger plan, some of which feeds into part II of the book. Part I meanwhile is of course available on Leanpub.
