Lean Change Management

Adaptability is a principle of survival in order to be able to react quickly and sustainably to changes. This also applies to organizations and companies - in short: Those who do not adapt or do not adapt fast enough will die. Therefore, change competence is one of the key competences of the future, in which it is worthwhile to invest. A failed or delayed change management usually leads to disappointment and frustration of the employees and thus causes also economic (!) damage. Lean change management is a procedure in which rapid feedback is used to record the reaction of those involved in a change and integrate it into the further process - thereby changing the focus from "managing change" to "dealing with the reaction that people show to change".

How does this training class help me?

As innovation and disruption continue to increase, more and more organizations are looking for how to change faster to remain competitive. Many of those organizations are looking at Agile as a new way of working. Good approach. However, they often implement a new way of working top-down, and with an outdated change management approach. This 2-Day Lean Change Management Workshop is designed to show you how to use modern change management techniques to facilitate change.

Lean Change Management is a modern approach that takes ideas from Lean Startup, Agile, Organizational Development, and Change Management to help you figure out the best approach to the change you’re faced with. Change is not just about tools; it is about understanding people, communication, create a vision, and many other things. During the workshop, we talk about all the important topics of a change.

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

There will be no slide decks or PowerPoint!
