9780133966442: More Fearless Change: Strategies for Making Your Ideas Happen

“The hard part of change is enlisting the support of other people. Whether a top manager interested in improving your organization’s results, or a lone developer promoting a better way of working, this book will give you tools and ideas to help accomplish your goal. Best of all, they’re presented in small, digestible bits.”

—George Dinwiddie, independent coach and consultant, iDIA Computing, LLC

 

“Keep the patterns in this book and Fearless Change handy. Whenever you are frustrated by an intractable problem, choose a pattern to try. If you still don’t get the desired results, try another. Others will join in your efforts, and you’ll feel the satisfaction as small successes start to add up. These patterns transformed me from an ineffective “voice in the wilderness” to a valued collaborator.”

—Lisa Crispin, co-author with Janet Gregory, Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams (Addison-Wesley, 2009) and More Agile Testing (Addison-Wesley, 2015)

 

63 New and Updated Patterns for Driving and Sustaining Change

 

In their classic work Fearless Change, Mary Lynn Manns and Linda Rising identified 48 proven patterns for implementing change in organizations and teams of all sizes, and demonstrated exactly how to use them successfully. Now, More Fearless Change reflects on all they’ve learned about their original patterns in the past decade, and introduces 15 powerful, new techniques—all extensively validated by change leaders worldwide. Going far beyond their first book, Manns and Rising teach strategies that appeal to each individual’s logic (head), feelings (heart), and desire to contribute (hands). This inspiring guide will help you engage the whole person: the best way to motivate real change, and sustain it for the long haul.

 

Learn how to

 

  • Pick your battles: focus on the best things you can achieve with limited resources
  • Strategize to build flexible plans and go after low-hanging fruit
  • Get help from the right people in the right ways
  • Establish emotional connections that inspire motivation and imagination
  • Create an elevator pitch that keeps everyone focused on what truly matters
  • Build bridges, work with skeptics, soften resistance, and open minds
  • Uncover easier paths towards change, and build on what already works
  • Sustain momentum, provide time for reflection, and celebrate small successes

 

More Fearless Change is for everyone who believes in a new idea, whether or not they have formal authority to “make it happen.” It will help you succeed by helping others recognize the value in your change, instead of just forcing it upon them. It reflects a profound understanding of how real change happens: not instantaneously in response to top-down plans and demands, but iteratively, through small steps that teach from experience. Best of all, as thousands of change agents have already discovered, its patterns are easy to use—and they work!

 

Mary Lynn Manns, management professor at the University of North Carolina, Asheville, helps students of all ages and levels to believe they can change the world and learn the tools for doing so. Her work in change leadership has included presentations at numerous conferences, and at organizations including Microsoft, amazon.com, Avon, and Procter & Gamble. She holds a Ph.D. from De Montfort University in Leicester, UK where her thesis focused on introducing patterns into organizations.

 

Linda Rising, an independent consultant based in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, holds a Ph.D. from Arizona State University in object-based design metrics. Her background includes both university teaching and industry work in telecommunications, avionics, and tactical weapons systems. An internationally known presenter on patterns, retrospectives, the change process, and how your brain works, she is author of Design Patterns in Communications, The Pattern Almanac 2000, and A Patterns Handbook.

 

Manns and Rising are co-authors of Fearless Change: Patterns for Introducing New Ideas.

In their classic work, Fearless Change, Mary Lynn Manns and Linda Rising interviewed successful leaders of change, identified 48 patterns for implementing change in teams of all sizes, and demonstrated how to use these techniques effectively. Now, in More Fearless Change the authors reflect on all they’ve learned about their original patterns in the past decade, and introduce 15 powerful, new techniques–all extensively validated by change leaders worldwide.

Product Description:

Change is brutally tough to initiate, and even harder to sustain. But without change, software organizations fail. With this book as a guide, you can succeed at making change work in your development team or organization.

 

Taking a proven patterns approach, world-renowned experts Mary Lynn Manns and Linda Rising capture the problems that recur most often in changing software organizations, and present proven solutions for each. They organize these solutions into 63 powerfully useful patterns for implementing change in organizations of all sizes, with clear explanations of each pattern and specific guidance on applying it in organizations or teams of all sizes.

 

Drawing on the experiences of hundreds of change agents, Manns and Rising address every stage of the change process: knowledge, persuasion, decision, implementation, and confirmation. They help you understand the forces in your organization that promote and restrict change, and help you drive participation and buy-in, from start to finish. You'll learn how to plant seeds of change, make proposed changes seem less threatening, sustain momentum, overcome adversity, and celebrate success.

 

For change to succeed, you need three things: your belief in a new idea, your determination to act on your belief, and knowledge about how to successfully introduce your idea. If you supply the first two, More Fearless Change will provide the third.
