Programme of Day One — The Change Journey (Brussels, Amersfoort, Los Angeles, New York)

Session 1: What have we learned about change?

In this part of the workshop, we will reflect on the history of Organizational Development and Change Management. What were the roots and how has it changed over time? We will have a look at the dominating paradigms of complexity and non-linearity and how they apply to organizations. We will present tools for analyzing and visualizing the complexity of change prcesses to help clients understand the challenge of launching change projects.

Session 2: Exploring the Map

In this part of the workshop you will explore the Change Journey Map and understand the details. You will reflect on how the Map can be used to initiate a dialogue, and what the role of the facilitator is in such a process. Facilitation of Change Journeys follow pretty much the principles of emergence and self-organization. So, the facilitator needs to become a humble listener, guiding the process through adequate questions. Based on a case study, we will simulate a Change Journey process. The process will be enriched by participants' experiences and suggestions.

Session 3: Working with the Map

In this part of the workshop, participants will work in small groups and apply the Change Journey Map to either their own change processes or those of their clients. We will give further insight to some of the places on the Map and their potential to leverage change in individuals, teams and organizations.

Session 4: Which tools can we combine with the Change Journey Map

In the last session, participants will work in a World Café style on how their own tools and processes can be incorporated into Change Journey work. We will construct scenarios for how to support our clients to put the Change Journey into practice.


At the end of the workshop you will sign out license agreement and get the full access on our training material.

Programme of Day Two — Lead Change by Design (Seattle and Washington D.C. only)

Session 1: Setting the Stage

In the first section of the workshop we will review the conventional 'surface level' change management methodologies and why innovation is needed in how we lead change. We will present the Innovative Change Toolkit overview.

Session 2: Idea Shaping

In this next section of the workshop, you will begin work on the project that you identified in advance. You will learn to take your idea, your change and shape your story in a way that inspires decision makers to care. At the end of this section, you will have identified the decision makers, created a proposal, and shaped your idea to your decision makers' worldviews and priorities.

Session 3: Idea Connection

In this next section, you will learn to connect with others to explore, listen, design, create, evaluate, and iterate. You'll learn how to engage people to understand their needs, barriers, hopes, and fears. You'll form a tribe in this section and you'll learn that's it's okay to avoid trolls.

Session 4: Idea to Market

In the last session, you'll learn what it means to be at the forefront of change. You'll learn that monitoring change is not a phase, but a state of mind. You'll learn key elements to reinforcing a movement, a bold change. And finally, you'll learn what to watch for to sustain a healthy flow of change.


At the end of the workshop you will receive a license to use the Leading Change by Design Toolkit.
