The workshop experience
The workshop is highly engaging, interactive and participative. This is key to its success as a learning opportunity. Working in small teams, participants design their approach to an organisational change by operating 7 “levers of change” in carefully-selected scenarios.
The simulation is hard to please, it is based on the best change theories and the hard-won experience of that rare breed – people and organisations who have really mastered change. What will it make of your strategy? Will it chew it up and spit it out? Will it show it to be like so many real change projects in real organisations – slow, over-budget and ultimately unsuccessful? Or will your approach knock spots off those of the other small teams in your workshop?
Whichever way it goes, there will be some profound learning on offer – learning which can help your key people to plan and implement better, faster, less expensive and more successful changes from now on.
The Change, Dialogue, and Action workshop is experiential and interactive. Teams have been known to spontaneously stand up and cheer as their strategy unfolds in the simulation. Participants debate vigorously during the simulation runs about trade‐offs and costs. After using the simulation, participants can immediately apply what they have learned to a current change initiative facing their organisation, and make real progress – in real time.
