Mark’s Note: Today’s post is by a new contributor, Nathalie Khodr. We met a few years back in San Antonio thanks to our shared interests in Lean and healthcare improvement. Nathalie asked to write a post that reflected on her participation in my “ExperienceChange” workshop earlier this year.
On behalf of the team at KaiNexus, I’d like to open up an invitation to join us and some of our customers in Austin this November.
I’m facilitating the fun and innovative “ExperienceChange” workshop that I’ve mentioned here on the blog before. It’s a hands-on way to learn and practice valuable change management skills that will help you in your Lean transformation, planning for Kaizen Events, or other major initiatives.
My guest for episode #247 is James Chisholm, a principal and co-founder of the Toronto-based ExperiencePoint. James is a pioneer in the design of online game-based learning, and has authored numerous leadership simulations in use by over 100,000 executives and managers worldwide.

Yesterday, I did a webinar about the "ExperienceChange" workshops that I'm facilitating and would love to bring to your organization. In the webinar, the first part talks about the need for change management practices and higher levels of employee engagement...
Having a model like this helps prevent errors, such as jumping to implement Lean tools before the organization understands WHY change is necessary. You have to engage and enroll people in change, not just force things on them.
I am convinced that the ExperienceChange simulations, either Lakeview or GlobalTech, are a great way to learn and practice.
