CHANGE MANAGEMENT #1 - IS CHANGE ALWAYS AGILE?

Uncategorized Sep 30, 2019

The other week I was invited to Italy to give a keynote speech on „How to get management ready for change.” With a group of 30 entrepreneurs I discussed the key lessons I took away from working with boards and market-leading companies across Europe. Over the next few weeks, I’ll share these ten lessons with you, one by one.

One hotly debated issue among international leaders and experts is this: Is there a difference between agile change management and traditional change management?

Some say change management has always been agile, so there’s no need to learn new tools and approaches. Others say: In an agile world, we need new approaches for many things – and change management is certainly one of them, as change won’t go away and it is still picking up speed.

Well, I tend to agree to the latter. (No surprises there, right?) Over the past few years, we’ve learned quite a few new perspectives and techniques from agile management, which we can put to good use in our approach to change.

To give you a clearer picture of what I’m talking about, I created this little overview. As a hands-on person always on the lookout for the most useful approaches around, I was particularly happy to pick up some insights from both sides: from well-established concepts such as #cynefin and #ambidexterity – and from #innovators such as #HRpioneers and #EvaAyberk.

 

I hope this overview might be inspiration to those of you who face change-related challenges on a daily basis – be it as leaders, as change agents, or simply as human beings.

And, as always, I am more than curious to learn about your perspectives on this!

Yours,
Masha Ibeschitz
