Outcomes all the way down

I had a lot of fun with the SquirrelNorth guys this month and the recording of our webinar together is now up:

Agendashift’s “inspiration map”

Funny how one thing leads to another…


Last week I posted a rough sketch which I called my “inspiration map”. Not only has it sparked some very interesting conversations as it evolved over those few days (prompting some content improvements), it has spawned a new visual identity for Agendashift.

It will take me weeks to work through everything that now wants updating, but the Framework pages are done (there or thereabouts). Do check it out! Content-wise, the most interesting place to start is probably the Patterns page.

Weekly #community Zoom

Quick public service announcement: Our weekly Zoom calls have moved to the later time of 14:00 BST, 15:00 CEST, 9am EDT. Still every Friday, Lean Coffee style, details in the #community channel in the Agendashift Slack (or ping me).

Summer & autumn workshops

Apart from Implementing your Outside-in Service Delivery Review (OI-SDR) which I’ve marked as private-only for now, in recent weeks I’ve done the full set of short training workshops publicly and at various times of day to suit participants from all timezones. We’ve done Deep Dive and Wholehearted:OKR too, so we can say with some confidence that we know how to do this stuff online!

In July I’m doing two of the longer workshops. Over multiple online sessions they cover the equivalent of the 1-day Core and 2-day Deep Dive:

The first of those is in conjunction with Agile Israel (until Covid-19 happened I was due to visit Tel Aviv in July), the second with my friends at SquirrelNorth (see Outcomes all the way down above).

In August I’m taking break from public workshops but Julia Wester steps in:

I’m back in September/October with the increasingly-familiar range of shorter training workshops:

The Agendashift events calendar always has the latest public workshops – watch this space for another (and updated) Wholehearted:OKR – and visit the workshops page if you’re considering doing something privately – chances are we have something of interest.
