The Adoption Checklist

  • Work toward having consistent organization-wide agreements that everyone follows to work together while enabling teams to self-manage how they work while meeting these agreements. Benefit: This enables having organization-wide agreements while enabling teams to have fit-for-purpose work methods. Creates alignment, lowers resistance, and lowers waste.
  • Provide teams that want a well-defined workflow to start and allow them to change it when the need arises. This is called an adaptive framework. Benefit: Teams get the assistance they need at the start while enabling them to adjust what they use as needed.
  • Provide people with the information they need when they need it. Benefit: This avoids overloading people with too much information while not requiring them to reinvent the wheel because they miss information.
  • Attend to the proper rate of adoption. Benefit: Avoid going too slow or too fast, which will stall an adoption.
  • Attend to the depth of adoption. Giving people too much to attend to may overstep what is possible and cause cognitive overload. Not giving enough may not make enough of a difference to see an improvement. Benefit: Having people use as much as they can to improve but not too much instills people with confidence and motivation to keep going.
  • Attend to the scope of adoption. Don’t go beyond what the adoption sponsor allows but show the damage any limits are causing. Benefit: Keep the sponsor happy by focusing on what they want while keeping them informed of any limitations they are creating.
  • Attend to the constraints the sponsor of the adoption puts on it. Benefit: Get the most bang for the buck you have.
  • Have the adoption be fit-for-purpose. Frameworks with pre-ordained practices may create more effort for the organization than necessary. Benefit: Don’t require people to do extra work because the framework tells you to.
  • Ensure you are providing support materials for new adopters. Don’t require people who are learning new methods to go on the path alone. Benefit: It makes it easier for people to learn new methods and be effective. This lowers resistance and the required motivation to succeed as well.
  • Take a system thinking approach. All of these factors work together; the more you attend to the whole, the better everything will be. Benefit: Create synergy by attending to all of these factors.

Amplio Learning Journeys

A learning journey is an ongoing process of skill development, unlike one-time workshops where retention is low. Learning journeys introduce information gradually for practical application in the workplace, emphasizing continuous learning.

Success Engineering promotes lifelong learning by offering ongoing access to learning materials. Private training can be arranged for accelerated curriculum transition.

Amplio Bootcamps

A bootcamp is a concise 3.5-hour workshop dedicated to a specific topic. Bootcamps are categorized into different levels, each with specific prerequisites outlined in their descriptions.

Integrated Q&A sessions and exercises are incorporated into all boot camps, with the final 30 minutes dedicated to interactive engagement. Every bootcamp includes a comprehensive workbook and a copy of the presentation slides.
