Building Capacity In Others As A Co-Creative Leader – Forbes.com

Early in my years as a consultant and change agent in organizations, I noticed a pattern I like to call “the Moses effect”: When I began consulting engagements, there were times where it was almost as if the waters parted upon my arrival, so that the change we were working on could happen.

The problem was that as soon as I walked away, the waters returned to their original bed. I wondered for the longest time why this was happening, and one day the answer came to me. I was not building the capacity in the people that would allow them to sustain the change we were making.

Agile 2015 – Using Change Canvases w/Jason Little

This interview was originally published on the LeanChange.org web site in August 2015.

In 2014 at the Gatineau-Ottawa Agile Tour conference, I saw Jason Little present about a tool he called the Team Change Canvas pulled from his book “Lean Change”. I was very intrigued at the time by how I could potentially use this tool to support the change we were bringing to teams with one of my clients.

After experimenting with the tool for six months, I reached out to Jason earlier this year to thank him for presenting the tool and to let him know I had used it with multiple teams this year. He invited me to do an interview for his web site and as we were both going to be at the Agile 2015 conference, we spent some time together and recorded the interview there.

You can the results on this interview page on his website or you can watch it below.
