“We were successful with our ERP replacement initiative due, in part, to your presentations on running successful projects. In particular, the presentation Cover Oregon, What Would You Do? opened my eyes to create an atmosphere of accountability, need to continually define and adjust for achievable scope, and manage team to a “forced march” toward completion with a focus on “what can be done” and not trying to do everything. Thank you.”

Visualizing Change Presentation or Workshop

Change is difficult. And, even if we can get people to change, will it stick? How about ropes, chains, whips, ropes, blindfolds, watermelons, and elastic bands in a fun G-rated presentation that get the audience on their feet and acting the roles that they may think is hindering them from change.

As one leader put it, "the physicality of the presentation makes the intangible a reality." Visualizing Change,, is a highly interactive form of presentation that can be used to address virtually any problem. If desired, it can be used to apply a set of principles to test how they can affect the problem.

In this fun presentation props like ropes represent constraints, chains are the "chains of command," blindfolds represent ignorance. These as well as dozens of other metaphors are used to create laughter, thought, and results. They are not gimmicks, they help people visualize and remember. Visualizing Change, engagements are often custom workshops targeting multiple specific problem that the audience is currently experiencing. The general format of the presentation is:

  1. Visualize the current state.
  2. Learn about principles that might help.
  3. Prototype a future state through a second visualization.
  4. Validate solutions.
  5. Create actions to implement the solutions.

A favorite presentation is the Project Prototype. This generic presentation starts by identifying a problem with most projects—the lack of soft skills. A project prototype uses an audience of 15 or more people to role play the way they do projects today. The problems are noted. Instruction is given on why we rely on process and the value of leadership over implementing more process. A second project prototype is performed to apply those principles.

At the end, three or more action items are identified that should be implemented in the project methodology. The group assigns responsible party to each action for implementation.
