About the Book
“An impressive piece of culture technology – facilitates clear thinking and communication while encouraging real agreement at scale across the whole enterprise.”
Part framework and part engagement model, Agendashift represents a way to naturally engage every employee, at every level, in the process of change. Building from agreement on outcomes, Agendashift facilitates rapid, experiment-based evolution of process, practice, and organisation. Instead of transformation by imposition – usually contradictory and self-defeating – it helps you keep your business vision and transformation strategy aligned with and energised by a culture of meaningful participation.
“If you are a business leader looking for tools that facilitate real change in real organisations, this is your book.”
“For exquisite listening and thinking tools – used by your teams and informing your strategy up and down the organisation – look no further than this book.”
“It’s like an invitation to pair coach with Mike and see how he uses the tools to implement a culture of continuous improvement in organisations”
