The Readiness for Change workshop… helped me to clarify what we wanted to achieve and how to explain the plan to others in a concise and meaningful way.

An Agile approach to business change

Delivering business change and organisation development initiatives can be a challenge. So an approach that allows you to flex according to the needs of your organisation, the resources available, or the time required by other activities is invaluable. We’ve found that the Scrum Agile project management framework does exactly this.

The ‘Agile approach to business change’ Lab was facilitated by Fairisle founder Sarah Willcox.

Springing back: fuelling change with energy from resistance

We were delighted to run a session at the University Human Resources Conference 2021 – ‘Refreshing HR’.

Jane Drysdale, Executive Director, People and Culture at WWF-UK worked with Fairisle consultants Sarah Willcox and Philip Ratcliff to deliver the workshop.

The session drew on the lessons learnt from recent engagements with HEIs. We took participants through practical and interactive exercises designed to help identify and understand resistance in its varied forms.  We then looked at how to convert the energy from resistance into a fuel for change.
