31. Managing Change in the 21st Century

Starring:  Mike Burrows (Founder, Agendashift)
Episode Type: Expert

Nearly two decades into the 21st century and with nearly as much time passed since the Agile manifesto was written, what have we learned about change?
Which is better: “top down”, with the challenge of overcoming resistance to change, or “bottom up”, perhaps never gathering momentum?

Is it indeed a dichotomy, or can we find a third way for organizational transformation that is simultaneously respectful, ambitious, and sustainable? We’ll explore a synthesis of ideas and techniques old and new, identifying along the way some widely-held beliefs that are now well past their sell-by date.
