Attend 2-day workshop and learn how to apply Lean Startup, Agile and Lean thinking to change management

Lean Change Management Workshop in Action

About the Lean Change Management Training: As innovation and disruption continue to increase, more and more organizations are looking for how to change faster in order to remain competitive.

Many of those organizations are looking at Agile as a new way of working. Good approach. However, they often implement a new way of working top-down, and with an outdated change management approach.

This 2-Day Lean Change Management Course is designed to show you how to use modern change management techniques to facilitate change.

Lean Change Management is a modern approach that takes ideas from Lean Startup, Agile, Organizational Development, and Change Management in order to help you figure out the best approach to the change you’re faced with.

Change is not just about tools, it is about understanding people, communication, create a vision, and many other things. During the workshop, we talk about all the important topics of a change.

What to Expect of the Training

This is not the traditional training where we try to kill you with 824 slides!

Lean Change Management Workshops are highly interactive! We don’t ask any rhetoric questions. The more you discuss, the more valuable the workshop will be.

We used the concept of Teaching from the back of the Room while designing this workshop. We combine your experiences, with theory, exercises and a debrief moment.

As we both are experienced facilitators, we are able to adjust the program on the fly if needed.
