Workshop #1: Discovering the Barriers and Enablers to Business Change
Business Change, large and small, requires a clear understanding of what “Good looks like” in the new Business-as-Usual, what things are in the way of "Getting-to-Good”, and the things that’ll help the journey to the envisioned change. What’s needed is a business-natural language that focuses less on mechanistic practices, procedures and technologies and more on a holistic view of business behaviour. Such a language helps focus discussion on the key outcome-affecting aspects of change rather than functional detail and helps preserve critical knowledge throughout the change journey. This workshop introduces a language of only five words; Values, Policies, Events, Content and Trust (VPEC-T) and puts it in the context of change journey using a simple Business Change Design method.
The workshop will demonstrate how this language provides a quick way of discovering both the barriers and enablers to business change including those that are often missed by traditional methods. The workshop comprises a number of case study examples and will include a number of interactive exercises that demonstrate the value of VPEC-T thinking framework and the Business Change Design approach. This workshop is targeted at Enterprise Architects and BPM practitioners, involved in shaping and planning strategic business change at CxO level.
