Finding your right-fit agility:
A case study on the Enterprise Change Pattern
About the Event
We were thrilled and excited to hold our first in-person meetup since February 2020. Carl Rogers, senior manager for Agile Enablement at Discover Financial Services, presented an interactive and insightful case study and immersive workshop for experimenting to find right-fit agility using the Enterprise Change Pattern.
A Case Study on the Enterprise Change Pattern
The Enterprise Change Pattern (ECP) sets out a collaborative strategy to achieve organisational change. Underpinned by a people-first, experiments-based approach, the ECP future-proofs an organisation’s ability to rapidly respond to change, innovate, and thrive.
One of the ways in which coaches and leaders can learn about this approach is at our Enterprise Agile Coach Bootcamp. Agile Coach Carl Rogers from Discover Financial Services attended this last year. Discover has been on an agile transformation for several years and had recently moved away from using a prescriptive framework. With the ECP, Carl saw an opportunity to develop an Agile Change Model that was appropriate for Discover’s context while being supported by a structure that facilitates that process in a non-prescriptive, yet tangible way.
During this interactive meetup, Carl shared Discover’s journey using the ECP to “plug the hole” and develop a bespoke, non-prescriptive pattern based approach to help teams of teams find their right-fit agility for their context. He highlights how it’s not only possible to design a bespoke change model within a large organisation but to do so in a truly playful and adaptive way. Carl shared Discover’s experience, including leading indicators about what is working so far, as well as examples of the choices that coaches and leaders have when co-creating a change strategy.
- Explore how agile coaches can engage with leaders in conversations about change
- Hear examples of what works and what doesn’t (e.g experiments)
- See how change can be created in a fun, experimental and adaptive way
- Experience this process through an interactive workshop (which you can take away and use with your teams)!
