I´m currently in an enviroment where change i happening. The enviroment is public sector, on national scale in Sweden. Are there any good examples out there of using The Cahnge Journey methodology and the Change Journey Map in such cases?
I can't say that I wasn't prepared. When I got this recent assignment for facilitating a workshop for a 7 people HR team, I was warned that there was medium to high risk of conflict. Well, if you know such things in advance, facilitating such a workshop can one of the most rewarding jobs - standing in the middle of the fire.

We have now an Agora. In ancient Greek city-states, the Agora was an open "place of assembly". It is the place where the dialogue about the concept of the Change Journey, it's implementation and other aspects will be held. Feel free to contribute but also to start your own threads.
