“Being “agile” has never been so popular, and not just in IT – after all, any company who wants to survive needs agility. These days, we are seeing a push towards agile in HR, marketing, administration and, in general, any environment that needs to reinvent itself to respond to market needs faster.” – Planet Lean

This certification is for you if:
The Change Agent
By introducing the landscape for skill and the Agile Coaching Competency Framework, you will understand the ideas of the whitespace worker (being a change agent is a set of skills, not a role or title). In an ACI personal map and self-assessment, you will explore your change agent strengths.
What is Lean Change Management
We will explore why a new way of change management is needed by looking at the 4 States of Disruption. You will learn about the Lean Change Management Cycle. By experiencing the Hot Seat exercise you will understand the difference between traditional linear change vs. modern feedback-driven change management. Furthermore, we introduce option charts to classify ideas for the change.
Agile and Change Management
You will learn about the history of Agile, especially in relation to change management. The modern Change Agent works as a facilitator, therefore we will create a change manifesto in order to facilitate the change initiative.
Ecosystem of Change
We will discuss the waves of change and how those affect the success of your change programme. By using the McKinsey 7s and other frameworks, you will understand how to see change as not a linear path.
We will explore how to use lightweight tools for change readiness, change lift-offs and ongoing facilitation of change. You will create a force-field analysis and a perspective mapping in order to handle different viewpoints in your organization.
As the last step in the Lean Change Management cycle we will talk about experiments and more disruptive Hacks. You will understand how to move away from change activities and move towards change experiments including good practices for communication, creating alignment and providing status information to change sponsors. You will create some experiments, using the experiment tracker and plot Hacks on the Blast Radius chart to understand its impact.
Explore how different people respond to change differently and how you, the change agent, can navigate in this complex environment by understanding the Stacey Matrix and the Cynefin framework. As Lean Change Management is a transparent approach, you and your team will create a change canvas in order to develop trust in the people affected by the change.
