BOSS Course: Change Management

The only constant in your company is change. In this session, we begin with a quick rundown of traditional change management theories, then rapidly move to merge those theories with Agile principles from the world of software development.

The result is a more practical, engaging and inclusive approach to change – training your managers to engage their employees with a visual process to unlock ideas and innovation for existing strategic/team initiatives or to fix smaller problems/issues identified by employees.

Our methodology morphs your Change Management approach from the top down to inclusive – creating transparency, engagement and better ideas to deal with change along the way.

The Best Ideas for Change Come From Your Team

Gone are the days when you locked the leadership team away at a retreat. To find the best path during times of chaos, you need to engage your team. We’ll show you how to do it via the following principles:

Brainstorming 

There are bad ideas, but inclusion matters. The tricky part of change management is you need all the ideas to find the ones that deliver true ROI in a changing world. Our training shows managers how to do that.

Evaluating Ideas

A cool outcome of engaging your team in times of change is you don’t have to tell someone their idea won’t work – the team will. We’ll show you how to let the team evaluate which idea wins.

Fail Fast

From small departmental changes comes change with impact. We’ll show your managers how to test ideas and kill the ones that won’t work quickly.
