New Agendashift workshops for 2018

If you’ve been to the Agendashift home page recently you’ll have noticed that the two workshops have become three:

  1. The Agendashift Workshop: Co-Creating Your Transformation Strategy
    The focus of the Agendashift workshop is the host organisation and its ways of working. As its name suggests, its output is a coherent strategy for transformation, co-created by its participants. It is delivered either as an intensive 1-day event or as a series of smaller events as part of a broader engagement.
  2. Core Agendashift: Facilitating Outcome-Oriented Change
    This 1-day workshop provides familiarisation with the Agendashift transformation strategy tools and materials and an initial introduction to outcome orientation. Its typical audience includes coaches, consultants, and managers.
  3. Advanced Agendashift: Coaching and Leading Continuous Transformation
    From 2018 onwards we are proud to offer this new 2-day workshop. Expanding on the core workshop, it is aimed at coaches, consultants, and managers wishing to:

    • Develop their coaching and leadership skills in the areas of enquiry, facilitation, strategy deployment, and change management
    • Broaden and deepen their appreciation of the Lean-Agile landscape and related bodies of knowledge

The drivers for these changes:

  • There’s “intensive”, and then there’s “too much”! For some time there has been more material available than we could possibly give in a day. That’s true even for me (let alone partners using my material) and there’s more material to come. The new range allows the two 1-day workshops to be refocused and the 2-day workshop to offer more depth than is currently possible.
  • Greater clarity around our stance of outcome orientation (in which the catalyst for change is agreement on collaboratively-identified outcomes rather than prescription or imposition) and our goal of continuous transformation (change sustained on an ongoing basis thanks to it being treated as real work, expected by all concerned, and supported structurally).
  • A desire to address leadership development and organisational development needs more explicitly.

As tradition dictates, the new 2-day workshop gets its first outing in Leeds:

Super Early Bird for the Leeds workshop expires December 31st and Early Bird on January 16th, so get in there quickly! We’re not quite ready to announce the venue but be assured that it will be within easy reach of the station.

After that, I’m in the US for TriAgile 2018 and a 1-day Core workshop around the conference, and in Germany for a 2-day Advanced workshop, dates to be announced.

There are more events in the pipeline, but do please get in touch if:

  • You’d like to see public workshops take place in other locations. Only rarely will I do a workshop outside of the UK without the offer of help on the ground, and even at home I’m happy to work with others.
  • You’d like to see more outcome orientation and continuous transformation in your own workplace. Help us help you make it a reality!

Advanced Agendashift: Coaching and Leading Continuous Transformation

We are champions and enablers of outcome-oriented change and continuous transformation. Building from agreement on outcomes, Agendashift facilitates rapid, experiment-based evolution of process, practice, and organisation. Instead of Lean and Agile by imposition – contradictory and ultimately self-defeating – we help you keep your business vision and transformation strategy aligned with and energised by a culture of meaningful participation.
