Surviving and Creating Organizational Change Using Retrospective and other tools

The necessity of rapid change is the topic number one nowadays. This regards, on the one hand, organizational change that we need to create and promote in order to stay in business, to respond to market pressures, and to be innovative. On the other hand, this addresses change that we face as organizations and individuals.

During this workshop, I want to provide answers – using both theory and practice – to the following questions:

  • What’s happening with affected persons during a change?
  • According to complexity theory, there is no resistance to change. So why is change still hard and how can we introduce change smoothly?
  • What factors are fundamental to every change?
  • What needs to be considered for implementing change successfully?
  • How can retrospectives and other tools help initiating change?

In order to answer these questions, we will make use from the insights from different change models and will use Retrospectives for Organizational Change and other tools and methods.

This workshop is based on the book – Retrospectives for Organizational Change: An Agile Approach and years of practical experience helping organizations with change.

During the workshop, we’ll try to answer the following questions:

  • What’s happening with affected persons during a change?
  • According to complexity theory, there is no resistance to change. So why is change still hard and how can we introduce change smoothly?
  • What is fundamental to every change?
  • What needs to be considered for implementing change successfully?
  • How can retrospectives and other tools help initiating change?
