63 New and Updated Patterns for Driving and Sustaining Change

 

The hard part of change is enlisting the support of other people. Whether a top manager interested in improving your organizations results or a lone developer promoting a better way of working, this book will give you tools and ideas to help accomplish your goal.

George Dinwiddie, independent coach and consultant, iDIA Computing, LLC

 

Keep the patterns in this book and Fearless Change handy. These patterns transformed me from an ineffective voice in the wilderness to a valued collaborator.

Lisa Crispin, co-author (with Janet Gregory) of Agile Testing and More Agile Testing

 

In their classic work, Fearless Change, Mary Lynn Manns and Linda Rising interviewed successful leaders of change, identified 48 patterns for implementing change in teams of all sizes, and demonstrated how to use these techniques effectively. Now, in More Fearless Change the authors reflect on all theyve learned about their original patterns in the past decade, and introduce 15 powerful, new techniquesall extensively validated by change leaders worldwide. Manns and Rising teach strategies that appeal to each individuals logic (head), feelings (heart), and desire to contribute (hands)the best way to motivate real change and sustain it for the long haul.

  • Focus on the best things you can achieve with limited resources

Praise for More Fearless Change

 

The hard part of change is enlisting the support of other people. Whether a top manager interested in improving your organizations results or a lone developer promoting a better way of working, this book will give you tools and ideas to help accomplish your goal. Best of all, theyre presented in small, digestible bits.

George Dinwiddie, independent coach and consultant, iDIA Computing, LLC

 

 

More Fearless Change is a great book. Through real experiences and concise analysis, Linda and Mary Lynn identify patterns that will help change leaders quantify the situations they often face. From there, they provide practical advice for dealing with and overcoming them. I found every pattern in More Fearless Change took me back to a specific place and time where I struggled to find the right approach to articulate my great new idea and connect with the people around me. I went from conference talks and challenging questions from skeptics to meetings with colleagues where I failed to convey practical new solutions, or to quiet times on my own where I was downright frustrated with my progress. Linda and Mary Lynn have patterns for each that helped me think through to practical, positive solutions and prepare for the future. For a topic as challenging as organization change, its rare to find a collection of patterns that are as powerful as those youll find in More Fearless Change.

Neil Johnson, principal hardware consultant, XtremeEDA

 

 

More secret sauce for positive organizational change! Mary Lynn and Linda make it sound so easy, but using their building blocks, it actually is. With books like these, change agents wont run out of steam while resistors will run out of excuses.

Jochen (Joe) Krebs, author of Going Lean, Agile coach, trainer, speaker, and incrementor

 

 

Keep the patterns in this book and Fearless Change handy. Whenever you are frustrated by an intractable problem, choose a pattern to try. If you still dont get the desired results, try another. Others will join in your efforts, and youll feel the satisfaction as small successes start to add up. These patterns transformed me from an ineffective voice in the wilderness to a valued collaborator.

Lisa Crispin, co-author (with Janet Gregory) of Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams (Addison-Wesley, 2009) and More Agile Testing (Addison-Wesley, 2015)
