First, you will need to get the Domains of Business Agility posters printed. There are 13 posters and they will cost between $7 and $20 per poster to print, depending on where and how you get them printed. We recommend high quality gloss printing for best results – this also allow you to reuse them! » Download the posters ».
Make sure you have permission to stick the posters on the walls of the meeting venue.
Review the Domains of Business Agility to ensure you are able to talk about each one with confidence and authority.
Stick all 13 posters on the walls of the room in groups of 3 (and one group of 4). Ensure you group each Dimension together (Relationships + Customer, Leadership, Operations, Individuals). As long as the dimensions are together, the exact order of Domains doesn’t matter. Leave a little space between each poster as people will be moving around and clustering around them. If they are too close together it will be hard to do that. Assuming a standard square/rectangular room (you have access to all 4 walls), one Dimension per wall is best.
Be careful not to damage or mark the walls. Blu-tack (adhesive putty) is best for this. Painters tape (blue tape) is also good, but can damage the poster when it gets removed.
Start with a high level discussion on Business Agility. This should take no more than 10 minutes and should cover:
The second stage involves getting everyone out of the chairs and walking around the room. Starting with customer go to each poster and spend 1-2 minutes describing that Domain. A few points from experience:
The third stage involves them thinking about their organisation and their transformation. Depending on the time remaining, ask them to move to the poster that best answers the questions…
As you ask each question, get the attendees to pair up and discuss their experiences and thoughts on that domain in the context of the question you just asked. E.g. What area has your organization focused most on so far? Possible pair convo: what has been the payback so far?
After the event, share the links to the Domains of Business Agility and any specific case studies or references that were discussed.
Remember to invite them to join the Business Agility Institute as a member.
