And here it is:
I only got back yesterday evening from a holiday abroad so it was with some relief that I finally got my hands on a copy of my own, one of a big stack given out to delegates at London Lean Kanban Days 2018 (#llkd18).
Three out of the four people I singled out for special mention in the acknowledgments happen to be here at the conference:
- Dragan Jojic‘s early work on the Agendashift assessment prompts was essential to their breadth, their usability, and their impact
- Karl Scotland helped to push Agendashift upstream, suggesting (and bravely testing) ways to develop the Discovery tools and to integrate the Cynefin exercise more cleanly.
- Steven Mackenzie diligently reviewed multiple revisions of this book and pushed me hard to make it what it is today
The fourth of those four is Andrea Chiou, US-based so perhaps we can forgive her absence! Andrea played a key role in the integration of Clean Language (see our coaching game 15-minute FOTO), and I’m grateful that through her I have been introduced to Judy Rees and Caitlin Walker, both leading members of the Clean Language community in the UK (Judy and Caitlin are respectively co-author and author of two of the books I recommend in chapter 1). I’m glad to say that Judy is here, with proof 🙂
I won’t repeat the back cover blurb again – you can read it in any of these places if you missed it here last week:
- Landing page: Resources: The Agendashift book (agendashift.com)
- amazon.com (US), amazon.co.uk (UK), barnesandnoble.com, or search “Agendashift” at your favourite online bookstore
The e-book comes out in multiple formats imminently. It would have been nice if it had been available at least for preorder for the print book launch, but the latter couldn’t wait.
Needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway): reviews, blog posts, tweets, shares etc very welcome. It all helps!
