Fearless Change – Patterns for introducing new ideas

I first read Fearless Change: Patterns for Introducing New Ideas by Mary Lynn Manns and Linda Rising when it first came out many years ago as part of Scrum Toronto book reading club. It has been an important source of ideas that have allowed me to successfully adopt Agile at many companies. This is an essential part of any change agent’s toolkit.

Mihai Iancu has a wonderful mindmap to show the patterns in a visual an approachable manner. Thanks to Mihai for allowing me to share this with you.

Here are some of my favourite patterns:

  • Do food – Create a relaxed setting and leverage cultural bonding that happens when people eat together
  • Tailor made – Find the right solution for the people you are working with; every situation is unique
  • Step by step – Take things one step at a time and build on successes
