What is Agendashift?

Agendashift is an engagement model aimed at helping to build wholehearted organisations – organisations in which people engage on the issues that matter, actively participate in anticipating and meeting needs, and through agreement on outcomes create the conditions for organisation and leadership development.


An engagement model must do these three things:

  1. Help the change agent structure their engagement with their client organisation and its staff

  2. Help the client organisation engage its staff meaningfully in change-related work

  3. Help the transforming parts of the organisation engage constructively with the rest of the organisation, so that both will thrive

In Agendashift, the engagement structure comes in the shape of five activities:


  1. Discovery: Establishing a shared sense of direction, identifying needs, ambitions and aspirations as well as shorter-term outcomes

  2. Exploration: Identifying opportunities for change, articulating them as outcomes, choosing appropriate change management approaches

  3. Mapping: Visualising plans and priorities, testing thinking, identifying gaps

  4. Elaboration: Keeping the change process fed with ideas, framing options as hypotheses and developing them as experiments

  5. Operation: The techniques and feedback loops required to sustain change over the long term, change treated as real work

Learning Agendashift

There are 3 families of workshops that can help you learn and practice the Agendashift engagement model:​

All our workshops can be delivered online, typically over multiple days in sessions of up to two hours each.
