Resources: True North
As featured in the poster and on the back of the 15-minute FOTO cue cards, Agendashift's ultimate goals expressed as a True North statement, released under a Creative Commons with-attribution licence to enable its wider use and to encourage adaptations:
As text (the "Imagine" is optional):
Everyone able to work consistently at their best:
- Individuals, teams, between teams, across the organisation
- Right conversations, right people, best possible moment
- Needs anticipated, met at just the right time
Chapter 1 of the book describes the True North used in conjunction with 15-minute FOTO, our coaching game. Instead of a lecture on Lean and Agile, we like to start with the True North as a jargon-free invitation that engages the imagination. Then (describing the process in brief):
- What's that like? What's different?
- What obstacles are in the way?
- What would you like to have happen?
- Then what happens?
This powerful workshop or coaching exercise is the start of a generative process that encourages meaningful participation and co-creation.
