Agendashift™ workshops

Leading change in the 21st century? You need a 21st century engagement model:

  • Based not on the imposition of prescribed solutions but around authentic agreement on outcomes
  • Not linear and plan-based, but emergent, humane, and complexity-conscious
  • Not just one-off projects, but the beginning of new conversations and new kinds of conversation
  • Not proprietary, but open and framework-agnostic – built by and for a welcoming community of experienced practitioners working at the intersection of Lean, Agile, organisation development (OD), and strategy deployment

Transformation strategy workshops

Our four transformation strategy workshops cover the Agendashift engagement model with a range of depth, coverage, and organisation focus:

1a. Core Agendashift: Facilitating Outcome-Oriented Change

This 1-day workshop provides familiarisation with the Agendashift transformation strategy tools and materials and an initial introduction to outcome orientation. Its typical audience includes coaches, consultants, and managers. More...

1b. Applied Agendashift: Co-Creating Your Transformation Strategy

Using the same Core material, the focus of the Applied workshop the host organisation and its ways of working. As its name suggests, its output is a coherent strategy for transformation, co-created by its participants. It is delivered either as an intensive 1-day event for a mixed audience or as a series of targetted events as part of a broader engagement. More...

2. Agendashift online: Learning the language of outcomes

An opportunity to experience Agendashift's Discovery and Discovery activities in the form of a highly immersive online workshop. More...

3. Advanced Agendashift: Coaching and Leading Continuous Transformation

Expanding on the Core workshop, the 2-day Advanced workshop – our flagship – is aimed at coaches, consultants, and managers wishing to develop their coaching and leadership skills in the areas of enquiry, facilitation, strategy deployment, and change management, and to broaden and deepen their appreciation of the Lean-Agile landscape and related bodies of knowledge. More...

Outside-in strategy workshops

In the approach introduced in Agendashift and developed in Right to Left, three variants on the theme of outside-in strategy review and organisation design:

4. Agendashift Outside-in Strategy Review (OI-SR)

A 1-day strategy review that follows the agenda described in chapter 5 of Right to Left: The digital leader’s guide to Lean and Agile. More....

5. Impact! Strategic outcome-orientation for products and services

A 1-day Agendashift workshop for product people. Different expressions of user need; managing your portfolio of experiments; thinking strategically about product evolution; options, hypotheses, and experiments. More...

6. Wholehearted:OKR – Bringing OKR to life with Agendashift

New for 2020, not only the Agendashiftiest of OKR workshops and the OKRiest of Agendashift workshops, the most wholehearted too! A 2-day workshop, using the Agendashift Outside-in Strategy Review (OI-SR) both to understand and to introduce Objectives and Key Results (OKR). Get the benefits, avoid the dysfunctions, and begin to see your organisation differently. More...

And more! Training workshops, based on (for example) our simulation games Changeban or Featureban, with or without more Agendashift-specific tools, the Agendashift delivery assessment for example.

Public or private?

With the exception of the private-only Applied and Outside-in Strategy Review workshops (which have public equivalents in the Core and Wholehearted / OKR workshops respectively), all workshops are offered both publicly and privately. Public workshops – see our Events calendar – are focussed on approach and skills; private workshops can be targetted directely at a range of organisational needs:

  1. To launch, refocus, or re-energise continuous transformation in your organisation
  2. To enhance your organisation's internal coaching and change management capability
  3. To support your organisation development or leadership development programme

Your workshop will be facilitated by an Agendashift partner, the majority of whom are listed in our partner directory. Our unlisted partners typically work exclusively within a single client organisation (often their employer), enabling self-service access to the full range of tools and materials.

Beginning with the shorter Online and Impact! workshops, some Agendashift workshops are certified by the Open Leadership Network, for which Agendashift founder Mike Burrows is an advisory board member.
