From the exciting intersection of Lean-Agile, Strategy, and Organisation Development, an engagement model fit for the 21st century:


The old way based on prescribed solutions is the way of pain and disappointment. Needs are both the place to start and the ultimate test of success – because if solutions aren’t meeting needs, what’s the point?


The positive, humane, and complexity-aware alternative to the imposed rollout: authentic agreement on outcomes as the catalyst for change, the focus for self-organisation, and the driver for innovation.


Lasting success comes not from one-off projects with their uncertain results and the near-inevitability of backsliding, but from the practice of continuous change, deliberate realignment, and ongoing conversations.


Agendashift is built out in the open, with open licensing, by and for a welcoming community of experienced practitioners working at the intersection of Lean, Agile, organisation development (OD), and strategy deployment.

Whether it’s Lean, Agile, Lean-Agile, DevOps, OKR, or a branded framework for process or organisation, one uncomfortable truth prevails: the way the thing is approached matters vastly more than the thing itself. Both to realise their promise and to avoid inflicting lasting harm along the way, you need a modern engagement model – one not based on imposition – and it’s why Agendashift exists. Not another rehash of the failed, engagement-destroying change management methods of the last century, but the means to bring the best of what your existing people have to offer in the shaping of a transformation strategy that they can believe in. Wholeheartedly.
