New blog series: Doing Agendashift online

The recent series The language of outcomes is followed by a new one: Doing Agendashift online. There have been three installments so far:

  1. Doing Agendashift online
  2. Celebration-5W
  3. The assessments

The timing of this series is of course no accident.  We do a lot online already; this was given extra urgency by the COVID-19 situation. There’ll be at least three more of these posts in the coming weeks; so far they’ve come out every Monday and I’ll do my best to keep to that pattern.

On a personal note, I’m glad to report that I’m out of solitary, no longer holed up in the studio (my office by day, self-contained accommodation when needed, actually quite comfortable). However, as we have what the UK authorities refer to as a “shielded” family member, our household will remain in complete physical isolation for weeks, if not longer. “Online” is very much the new normal for us and for many others like us. We’re ok, but if you know others in a similar situation, please do your best to help – it’s going to be a long haul.

Site updates

The time to take a close look at 1) your strategy and 2) your ways of working is now. You need to do those together – integrated, wholeheartedly, no half measures. The place to do it is online. We’re here to help you.

Work on the Agendashift site never really stops, but over the past few weeks the change has been particularly rapid. Most visibly:

The basic idea is to delineate more clearly – and in this order – what kind of thing Agendashift is, its ethos, and what it has offer. For those that want to dig deeper into the detail: where we’re coming from, what we reference, key structures, ideas, tools and techniques, and so on.

As well some major rework to existing content, new pages have been added too (some of those still a work in progress). One of those at least will get mentioned in the next blog installment, so don’t worry if it doesn’t jump out at you straight away!
