It's hard to believe John Kotter's 8-step model for change is almost 20 years old now. In its day, it was a great framework for introducing change but the world of knowledge work today is drastically different than it was back then.
By the time you finish reading this sentence, 10 more new startup companies will have been spawned across the world, and any one of them may be set to disrupt your market, making inroads into your revenue streams. In fact, as the marketplace becomes increasingly fragmented with Gen Y and Millennial buyers gaining more purchasing power, we're finding that if we can’t give them what they want, when they want it, to the right quality, and at the right price, they'll find someone else who will.
Simply put, disruption and innovation are at an all-time high and there is no sign of it slowing down.
As transformation becomes the new norm, established organisations need to change how they think about change, and that's precisely what's Lean Change Management is all about.
Unboxed Consulting is partnering with two passionate and talented facilitators to bring Happy Melly's brand new Lean Change Agent course to the UK for the first time. Richard Atherton, a Change Agent with SLP Global, and Andrew Kidd, a highly experience Transformation Coach, will lead an immersive two-day course in E1 on Thursday 19th & Friday 20th November 2015.

Richard Atherton (@RathertonRich)
I'm passionate about humans and how they change. I've been consulting for 15+ years, combined with studies in neuroscience and psychotherapy. I'm interested in how we can apply learnings from the healing sciences, with Agile and Lean techniques to transform how we work and who we are as teams. As change agents, how can we be better at doing what we do?
Why become a Lean Change Agent facilitator?
Jason has done a fantastic job of taking a rich stock of Lean philosophy, blending with some choice traditional change management seasonings to create a full and spicy broth. It’s fine soup that’ll keep you lively for months. Let’s get cooking!
Andrew Kidd (@CoachKidd)
I’ve spent most of my working life studying and modelling excellence, in order to support people on their transformation journeys. I essentially design, build and improve human ecosystems through software, either as a creator, or as a coaching consultant. Working for both public and private sector clients, from seedlings to mighty oaks, you’ll find me working alongside talented and motivated individuals committed to making their world a better place.
Why I became a facilitator?
A self-confessed insight junkie and tool geek, I’m delighted to be able to share with you the latest thinking in Lean Change Management, courtesy of Jason’s hard work, which I believe is the most humane, respectful and risk-averse way for facilitating innovating safely, and making change safe.
