Core Agendashift: Facilitating Outcome-Oriented Change

Imagine… everyone able to work consistently at their best:

  • Individuals, teams, between teams,
    across the organisation and beyond
  • Right conversations, right people,
    best possible moment
  • Needs anticipated, met at just the right time

“Looking back to the Agendashift session in Leeds a few weeks ago, it has been incredibly helpful to me in my professional development”
“What stood out for me was how the participants started to develop a shared ownership of organisational change through shared outcomes and values. It managed to align even a bunch of strangers”

In a safe environment, practice the skills of outcome-centric change facilitation, as described in the book Agendashift: Outcome-oriented change and continuous transformation. Working on things that really matter to your client organisations, apply some powerful techniques from Clean Language, Lean Startup, A3, Cynefin, and Kanban.

The Agendashift delivery assessment is set as pre-work for this workshop. In keeping with the assessment, the workshop is light on jargon and prescription and strong on inclusivity and honest reflection. Most of all, it is about opportunities, outcomes, alignment, and action.

Who should attend?

The Core workshop is aimed at agents of organisational change at all levels of experience and seniority. Whilst the majority of attendees have been coaches and consultants, a significant minority have been project/product managers and team/departmental leaders also.

For a version of this workshop aimed at general audiences inside client organisations, see Applied Agendashift: Co-Creating Your Transformation Strategy.

And where?

The Core workshop may be held:

  • privately – to train internal practitioners
  • publicly – see our events calendar
  • semi-publicly – hosted by a client organisation and open to outsiders

Typical structure

For a full day workshop (talk to us if you'd like something shorter):

  1. Discovery: Explore strategic objectives, obstacles, outcomes, change strategies
  2. Exploration: Debrief your Agendashift delivery assessment, agree scope
  3. Mapping: Build a transformation plan
  4. Elaboration: Learn how to generate, frame, and develop actions

Note: Operation, chapter 5 of the book, is no longer part of our 1-day workshops but may be covered by agreed support activities and is included in the 2-day workshop Advanced Agendashift: Coaching and Leading Continuous Transformation.
