As promised on Friday, revision 4 of the Agendashift book is now out. The same book, but with some polish:
- An intro that’s much more explicit about what it’s all about, a much clearer distinction between delivery and transformation frameworks, and identifying up front Agendashift’s main elements (its activity flow, its Lean-Agile True North, the assessments, and the change leadership principles)
- The poster, seen in full in the intro and excerpted at the top of each chapter
- Summaries of key points at the end of each chapter
- In chapter 1, Discovery, references to Remember the Future (www.innovationgames.com) and The Future, Backwards cognitive-edge.com)
- In chapter 2, Exploration, calling out more clearly the flows into later chapters
- In chapter 3, Mapping, more about the orthogonality (without using that word) of the ‘spine’ or ‘narrative arc’ of the map and priorities (see last week’s quick LinkedIn update / tweet for a taste)
- In chapter 4, Elaboration, a reference to Solutions Focus
Moreover, all mentions of a part II have been removed – it stands alone as a 5-chapter book, running to about 150 pages in the PDF version (not a minibook, but still digestible).
This revision owes much to the comments of Steven Mackenzie, Allan Kelly, and Dieter Strasser and I’m very grateful to the three of them. I don’t mind admitting that I’m very pleased with it and I really don’t anticipate making significant further changes.
If you have bought the e-book already, you will receive notification from Leanpub that there is new version to download. If you don’t yet own a copy, get yours here:
There are PDF, EPUB and MOBI formats available. For iOS devices (iPad and iPhone) I would recommend EPUB for viewing in iBooks in preference to MOBI for Kindle –for reasons still not fully understood the formatting is noticeably better in the former.
