We often hear that people don’t like change. The truth is more that people don’t like change which is forced upon them. Lean Change is an approach proposed by Jason Little which increases the chance of success by co-creating change with the people it is going to affect. Collaboration is key. Books such as Innovation Games and Gamestorming provide us with powerful tools for collaboration.

During this highly interactive session, we’ll look at Lean Change Management and how we can use some of the Collaboration Frameworks from Innovation Games and Gamestorming to co-create successful, lasting change. After the session, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the Lean Change Cycle
  • Identify appropriate Collaboration Frameworks for various stages of the cycle
  • Discuss opportunities for using Lean Change and Collaboration Frameworks at work.
