#9 Society’s Effect on Organizational Change

10 years ago you’d be laughed out of the building if you used words like love and vulnerability in the boardroom. Today, there seems to be a trend towards stripping away the noise as leaders understand that meaningful change isn’t going to happen through the $4 million worth of buzzword-filled documents that big consulting firms like to deliver. From the ineffectiveness of the carrot and stick method, to the effect that societal change has on our organizations, Paul Gibbons, who helped launch the first podcast, is back to restart the podcast along with a Modern Change video channel.

#16 - Debugging Bureaucracy

In this podcast, we hand over the hosting reigns to Lean Change Facilitator Richard Atherton - one of the leaders of Lean Change in the UK. Richard first discovered Venkataraman on LinkedIn in 2016 and was attracted to his incisive writing on organisations. In this episode they explore: What do we mean by bureaucracy? How do we “debug bureaucracy”? What’s the meaning and value of “working out loud”? Venky and Richard recommend the following if you’d like to dive deeper on bureaucracy: David Graeber's The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy Neil Postman's Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology Pournelle's Iron Law of Bureaucracy You can find more of Venky’s writing at LinkedIn, especially Debugging Bureaucracy and the Voldemort Effect.

#15 - Living Through a SAFe Rollout

Most of the stories we hear about agile transformation, or a rollout of , it’s from someone selling something, or from the consultants, or leaders who were responsible for the rollout itself. I haven’t seen very many (any?) stories from people who were employees of the organization who had to figure out how to work within the method when they didn’t really have a say in how and why it was brought in. This podcast features Ryan Latta, who was a developer on a team, and Sean Melody, who was a chief architect at the time their organization brought in SAFe. The purpose of this podcast is to understand the difference in perspective about a change that was decided upon that people affected had no real say in. In this instance SAFe is the trigger for change, so this podcast isn’t about debating whether or not SAFe is good idea, or how it works. We chat about what the reaction was like, how the teams adjusted, what problems they ran into and how they dealt with them.

#14 - Meaningful Change at National Leasing

This week’s podcast, and video chat, closed the chapter of the book! Jill and I explore: how did you get started with your change canvases? how did people react to formalizing change management for the first time? how deep did you go while exploring who was affected? has IT change gotten easier because we’re used to software changing all the time? how did operational readiness happen? how did visualizing the change help? what outcomes did you get, and what were the lessons learned?

#12 - Agile Change Management with Richard Atherton

Nowadays, the word agile has baggage. Despite the amount of information out there, some still think agile means no planning, no process, and no documents. If you feel you have an agile mindset, it can be extremely difficult to work with those who “don’t get it”. If you look at the 4 values and 12 principles, agile is simple, and it’s not about the methods, or frameworks, or certifications, it’s about how organizations can figure out more effective ways to manage work and people. Some organizations will have more process than others, some organizations will use sticky notes, others will use tools. A friend of mine once said, “Agile helps people learn how to think in their own context”.

#13 - Sociocracy with Jerry Koch-Gonzalez

We underestimate the importance of psychological safety, and meaningful conversations when it comes to running our organizations. In this episode, Jerry Koch-Gonzalez explains the 3 structures of sociocracy, why organizations are choosing it, how they’re getting stuck, and what’s getting them past those sticking points. Our topics include: - what is sociocracy, and what are the 3 structures of sociocracy? - why are organizations choosing sociocracy?1 - do organizations see sociocracy as a process or an intentional shift in culture? - are some organizations predisposed to this way of working? - challenges organizations have with sociocracy and how they overcome them. - the importance of psychological safety - what do people who don’t like sociocracy do? Do they opt-out? Do they eventually come around?
