It’s fair to say that it went well:
Thank you again for the last 2 days, I have been raving about it to my manager today!
If I or any of our participants had any anxieties, they weren’t about our ability to fill two days (that was never in doubt), but that “Advanced” would mean “complicated” or “only for experts”. Thankfully, we can put those worries aside. The feedback demonstrates that Advanced here means “deep”, “inspiring”, “challenging”, “enabling meaningful discussion”, “causing new connections to be made”, “giving the confidence and determination to try these tomorrow”, and so on. All of these for a surprisingly diverse group of participants: some new to Lean and Agile, others experienced practitioners, some from industry, one there for his second Agendashift workshop!
The pictures below show the feedback stickies from the closing session (some really lovely messages there, thank you), followed by takeaways from the Discovery, Exploration, Mapping, and Elaboration sessions. Lots of love there for the models, the tools, their applicability, the discussions they provoked, and for Agendashift’s principled (but still very practical) stance that we summarise as outcome-oriented change and continuous transformation.
In reference to some of the tools mentioned on the stickies, go to our resources page for 15-minute FOTO, Changeban, the Agendashift A3 template, etc. Visit Karl Scotland’s blog for his X-Matrix template.
