  17. 17. @JASONLITTLE | LEANCHANGE.ORG Stages of a Movement Emergence Dis-satisfaction with the status quo little to no organization Doers take action, Inspirers spread propaganda , Skeptics and Protesters leave the organization Coalescence Small successes, Doers and Inspirers become known as ‘agile people’, teams start bumping up against organizational boundaries Bureaucratization Someone with power notices, hires a VP of Agile or centralizes Agile to ‘get it under control’, centralized processes get created, Doers and Inspirers leave the organization.

  21. 21. @JASONLITTLE | LEANCHANGE.ORG Rethinking Transformation EMERGENCE | COALESCENCE | BUREAUCRATISATION | DECLINE Reach past organizational boundaries, consider dual operating systems, reduce emphasis on roles (this is where the infamous culture shift starts to happen) #NoPPT, Centralized Change Team, hire VP of Agile, Standardize practices, create ‘official’ Agile COP/COE etc seeing a pattern here?
  22. 22. @JASONLITTLE | LEANCHANGE.ORG Rethinking Transformation EMERGENCE | COALESCENCE | BUREAUCRATISATION | DECLINE YOU MIGHT HAVE WON!!! CELEBRATE!!!

  23. 23. @JASONLITTLE | LEANCHANGE.ORG But What Can I Do? Do, Don’t Tell Do, Don’t Complain Tell the Kind Truth Find out what’s important to others Be Purposefully disruptive Build Bridges Between People who Disagree Yes, it can be that simple.
