After reading Lean Change Management by Jason Little I start looking for more Canvas to use with my clients.
One of my colleagues recommended to me another great book called: “The Lean Change Method: Managing Agile Organizational Transformation Using Kanban, Kotter, and Lean Startup Thinking by Jeff Anderson.
Reading those books I realised that Lean Change management has a powerful tool to help companies to adopt Agile or change anything they need: The Lean Change Canvas.
The following paragraphs and images were extracted from http://agileconsulting.blogspot.cl and the author is Jeff Anderson.
“Here is an atypical, if somewhat generic example of an agile transformation plan using a simpler canvas format, you can see a lot of visual metaphors used to represent the different parts of the canvas.
The format of this canvas is quite different than the ones he (Jeff) has previously shown on his blog and his book (The Lean Change Method). The sections follow a simpler, more straightforward path daily typically seen a lot of canvases including ones that he previously designed.”
The best you can do is with your client organise a meeting to build your Lean Change Canvas in a physical board. However, if many people are not colocated you should use a virtual board such as www.canvanizer.com This tool is amazing because you can send your Lean Change Canvas to many people in order to get feedback for people out of your building.
To sum it up, Lean Change method is a great way to adopt Agile for companies that want to put in a picture all of your challenges. If you need to discuss more about it reach me at metlucero [at] gmail [dot] com, Twitter: metlucero or Skype (metlucero).
