Is (lean/kanban/agile/SAFe) starting to follow the path of every other management buzzword in your organization? Does your improvement initiative, originally full of excitement now seem to have lost steam? Has your organization created a "hybrid" process to "make it work for us?"

If you’re like most managers, your organization isn't fit for purpose -- and it’s your fault. You’ve introduced a new set of rules, principles, values- and they just don’t fit those that have existed for years in your company. Given this scenario, you have a choice as a modern manager/leader:

1) Accept it as beyond your control, and explain it away as “culture,” “lack of leadership support,” “not right for our organization,” or any of a list of common rationalizations (victim)

2) Be a brave champion of transformation and lead the fight against the tyranny of the old ways….”FREEEEEEEEDOOOOMMMMMMMM!!!!!” (start brushing off your resume now, dear martyr)

Guide your organization in a journey of safe yet effective disruption...so that it can change the rules as it improves (and join us on the path of catalyst)

Environment design includes the practice of improving your organization successfully by doing the necessary work of correcting misalignments with new approaches and values - subtly, and in a manner that allows as many people to succeed as possible.
