An Amplio Bootcamp

Transition Management

About this bootcamp

Teams and companies often embark on Agile initiatives without adequately considering their human dimensions. This oversight virtually guarantees resistance and significantly impedes success. It’s imperative to prioritize the human aspect in such endeavors. People often draw parallels with past experiences and develop emotional attachments to the current situation, even if it’s suboptimal.

The Transition Management bootcamp integrates transition models outlined by William and Susan Bridges in “Managing Transitions” and Chip and Dan Heath in “Made to Stick.”

“Managing Transitions” offers a straightforward and concise model for addressing key considerations during transitions, while the Heath Brothers present numerous anecdotal practices that complement this model.

The bootcamp furnishes change agents with a framework to guide organizations toward embracing new ways of working. It offers insights into essential areas to focus on during a transition, including actions to engage both management and teams, and strategies for establishing transition management and monitoring teams.

Specifically, it provides guidance on establishing a transition management team responsible for determining the shape of the transition, and a transition monitoring team that offers a supportive environment for discussing progress and challenges.
