Lean Change Management

Innovative practices to create alignment, manage impediments, and facilitate agile transformation beyond the team. This talk will distill ideas from various disciplines to support individuals in developing their own approach for managing change – within a team or throughout an organization. Lean Change Management is the practice of applying lean and agile concepts to the transformation efforts, including the implementation or scaling of agile methodologies.

This talk is based on the concepts portrayed by Jason Little in the book “Lean Change Management”. I am a certified Lean Change Agent (the certification on the Lean Change method) and will review the key foundation concepts in the time allotted. You can read more about the Lean Change Management concept at leanchange.org, or in the book published under Happy Melly.
