In an increasingly complex and agile world, it is important to be able to skillfully engage people to address real issues. Our Agile and Lean Change Management coaches will give you a powerful collaboration framework that helps people to co-create and adopt change.

This Masterclass is based on Jason Little’s Lean Change Management Practice. His 3 step Lean Change cycle is an approach that uses ideas from Lean Startup, Agile, Organisational Development, and Change Management to help you design the best approach to your change.

Lean Change Management is part of the global Happy Melly network. Tabar has a relationship with Jurgen Appelo's Happy Melly network, stretching back to 2012. We have brought Jurgen out to Australia to speak and teach.

Our position is unique in Australia, and combining this with our two pronged Change Management/ Agile Management expertise is the best way for you to adapt to the new world of work.

Praise for this course

I was delighted to join the first Agile & Lean Change course facilitated by Jude and Peter. I’d recommend this to Change Managers wanting to incorporate agile & lean techniques; and to agilists who need to understand Change. It’s a powerful blend of both Change and Agile and you’ll leave with a kitbag of new, pragmatic tools to support your team’s learning and help them achieve better outcomes.

What I’ve noticed is that when I’m implementing UX into a business, we also need to talk Change Management. I took away from this course an understanding, toolkit and lean process to use in those conversations. The synergies between UX and Change processes were uncanny and how nicely they were extended in this session. I’d recommend this course if you want to continuously manage and monitor change across your business from the 80/20 perspective and get your 80% impact from 20% effort.
