Attend 2-day workshop and learn how to apply Lean Startup, Agile and Lean thinking to change management

"So what's your plan in making this change succeed?" I'm sure you've heard that before if you’re an Agile Coach or Scrum Master tasked with introducing Agile, or it can also mean you’re a Change Management Professional who is looking for more effective ways to develop and execute change programs. This 2-day workshop, based on the book "Lean Change Management", is designed to help you discover more effective practices for introducing and managing change in your organization. You’ll learn by doing, not by reading PowerPoint slides! You’ll hear real stories about how to apply better, innovative practices to managing change.

Topics covered:

  • What is Lean Change Management?
  • Where does Change Resistance comes from and how to manage it?
  • How to use and create fit-for-purpose, lightweight planning tools, such as Change Canvases
  • How to lead change from any level in your organization
  • Many tools and practices that you can use right away
  • How to manage change programs by using Agile practices

Learning objectives of the Lean Change Management course:

  • Understand how to apply modern techniques to Change Management
  • How to use techniques from Agile and Lean within your existing Change Management framework
  • How to reframe resistance to change to respond to change
  • Learn about tools like Impact Matrix and Impact Bubbles
  • How to modernize your change management practices
  • Combine ideas from Lean Startup, Management 3.0, Agile, Organizational Design, and Human Resources to develop your own contextual change framework
  • Alternatives to ROI and project management thinking
  • How to use light-weight planning and measurement tools such as Change Canvases, OKRs, Vision Canvases and more.

“Clear and to the point in the explanations Very empathetic and close, one of them could join us for dinner. Shared very valuable first hand experiences Great presentations with paper and pen, without laptops”

- Mario Gonzalez Forrellad


The workshop is for people who would like to drive a change in their organization. People who often attend the workshop are:

  • Agile Coaches
  • Scrum Master
  • Project Manager
  • Middle Managers
  • Senior Team Leads
  • Directors
  • Change Agents

Everyone can make a change, not just the manager. We believe everyone is responsible for contributing to a change!

No PowerPoint during the Change Management Course!


What to Expect of the Training

This is not the traditional training where we try to kill you with 824 slides!

Lean Change Management Workshops are highly interactive! We don’t ask any rhetoric questions. The more you discuss, the more valuable the workshop will be.

We use the concepts of Teaching from the back of the Room while designing this workshop. We combine your experiences, with theory, exercises and a debrief moment.

As we both are experienced facilitators, we are able to adjust the program on the fly if needed.

Agenda for the Lean Change Management Course

Day 1:

  • Introduction: why are you here? What is the ultimate question you hope to have answered?
  • What is Lean Change Management, and how is it similar, and different, to how you approach change today?
  • Agile Change Management: Overview of the Agile values and principles, and how you can apply that thinking to change management.
  • Alignment: How to use light-weight tools for change readiness, change liftoffs, and ongoing facilitation of change
  • Incremental Change: How to move away from traditional ROI and towards reducing uncertainty by breaking down change into quarterly objectives with tangible key results.

Day 2:

  • Experiments: How to move away from change activities, and towards change experiments. This includes good practices for communication, creating alignment, providing status to change sponsors and more.
  • People: Why the notion of 'resistance to change' is wrong, and why the "70% of changes fail" is incorrect. We'll explore how different people respond to change differently, and how you, the change agent, can navigate that complexity
  • Your Own Change Framework: We'll take the learning from both days, and discuss what your own change framework could look like and you'll answer your own questions that were created at the beginning of Day 1.

What you get as well with the LCM Course:

  • (E-)copy of the book Lean Change Management
  • Electronic copies of all materials plus a lot more!
  • A lifetime of connections with over 700 people who have attended these workshops (as of Oct 2016)
  • You leave the workshop with your own change plan!

    Managed to pack a huge amount of info in the course. Acted more as a coach then a teacher. Very flexible, pleasant, created a relaxed atmosphere from the start.
