Leanne McCormickOrganisational Capability Strategist, Uniting

I really enjoy working with Jude as a member of my Leadership Team in Group Hubs. The communications initiatives she has delivered for my business have raised our profile across the bank and I value her support and advice as my personal communications consultant. She is also fun, has a lot of drive and is a straight talker.

I was delighted to join the first Agile & Lean Change course … I’d recommend this to Change Managers wanting to incorporate agile & lean techniques; and to agilists who need to understand Change. It’s a powerful blend of both Change and Agile and you’ll leave with a kitbag of new, pragmatic tools to support your team’s learning and help them achieve better outcomes.

Penelope BarrTechnology Leader, Transformation, Digital & Program Director, ANZ Bank

What I’ve noticed is that when I’m implementing UX into a business, we also need to talk Change Management. I took away from this course an understanding, toolkit and lean process to use in those conversations. The synergies between UX and Change processes were uncanny and how nicely they were extended in this session. I’d recommend this course if you want to continuously manage and monitor change across your business from the 80/20 perspective and get your 80% impact from 20% effort.
