Agile transformations often face organizational resistance, stemming from fear, lack of understanding, and inability for participants to influence the changes they will have to live with. That's why we recommend using workshops during transformations at the team and program level, especially at the start. This format allows participants to make decisions within given parameters regarding how a specific practice or principle applies to their group.
Workshops for managers allow everyone to express their opinions and are a way to use the "wisdom of the group", to voice contradictions and risks, and to give employees responsibility for their own process. Workshops for change agents provide a way to see how people communicate with each other, how they make decisions, identify informal leaders and early signs of resistance.
Workshops for employees provide an opportunity to influence work processes, understand the reasons for requirements and constraints, and see their leaders not just as managers but also as those who listen to reasonable arguments.
