I thought I now covered all agile ways of working but I failed (again). I found a new one. This time it’s Agendashift. A 21st century modern engagement model (developed by Mike Burrows) that is needs-based, outcome-oriented, continuous and open to help organizations grow wholeheartedness.
The model Agendashift does:
- Help the change agent structure their engagement with their client organisation and its staff
- help the client organization engage its staff meaningfully in change-related work
- Help the transforming parts of the organization engage constructively with the rest of the organization, so that both will thrive.
Agendashift is based on five principles:
- Start with needs
- Agree on outcomes
- Keep the agenda for change visible
- Manage options, testing assumptions
- organize for clarity of intent, speed of decision-making, and alignment of impact (mutual accountability).
in Agendashift we see five activities:
- Discovery (where we would like to go: remember the future, 5W, True North, 15-minute FOTO, Clean language)
- Exploration (prospecting for opportunities: 15-minute FOTO, Clean language, Cynefin)
- Mapping (plans & priorities visualized: (User) Story mapping, reverse STATIK, impact mapping, X-matrix)
- Elaborating (framing actions, testing our thinking: hypothesis-based change, Lean Startup, A3, Cynefin)
- Operation (change as real work: Lean Startup, Kanban, Scrum).
On the Agendashift website you can find more details, set-ups of workshops, templates, books, et cetera.
In my bird’s eye view in the agile forest I added Agileshift in the Culture-targeted box.
