We've all heard it; the only constant is change. When an organization begins a journey for Agile Transformation, the changes piles up... Unfortunately most change management approaches focus on creating a project-oriented plan for this. Other approaches like Lean Change are more emergent, but aren't specifically designed to help people to cope with change itself, only to help make the steps smaller. Let's explore some complementary people-centric approaches:
- Transition Management to help people make the journey through the wilderness
- Appreciative Inquiry to build on the current strengths, and
- The Power of Habit, to help people unlearn what is unwittingly holding them back
As we talk through each of these, we'll focus on the role of leadership and how these techniques can help people become willing, as opposed to being coerced, partners. We'll close with a brief discussion on how to engage people creatively with storytelling and such approaches as Open Space, World Café, and other workshops. In thinking on techniques that complement change management approaches, we can improve the effectiveness and willingness of the people in the organization to join in.
