"Pragmatic, practical and timely, it fills a gap in our knowledge of transformation...."

How do companies like Amazon, succeed time and time again with new projects, new platforms and new services? In the process, these champions of modern business, reinvent the way they get things done. They don't need to set up large digital transformation programs because they are always evolving anyway. That should be the goal of any good leader but how is it done?

In Transformation Sprint, the author's aim is to unlock the secretes of transformation by focusing on the critical role of evolutionary learning in transformation design.

It's 2021 and the world is in crisis. What's needed are these new agile planning tools that powered companies like Amazon to global leadership, tools that give you results even when the problems are large and imposing.

The Transformation Sprint is a six step method that embraces agile thinking and agile practices and applies them to the problem of designing and executing significant change in an evolutionary way with strong learning mechanisms.

"a fantastic, expert guide for how to get your team to deliver a compelling vision, with a clear, achievable plan. I wish I had this 20 years ago." Hugh Hessing, former COO, Aviva Plc.

Change has always been difficult but more so now than ever, as businesses scramble to understand the impact of COVID19 on their revenues and strategies. Policy makers meanwhile are facing a once-in-a-lifetime challenge. How will businesses and governments go about making the critical changes needed?

This step-by-step guide to designing good transformations and fixing broken ones is a bible for people who work in transformation or are affected by sudden events that derail work in progress.

Whether you are an agile coach, agile leader, project manager or senior decision maker this book will teach you a four week fix to any significant problem you face. Use Transformation Sprints not only to solve big problems but also to upskill yourself and prepare for a better career.

Transformation Sprint is a new method, or framework, that takes the principle of rapid momentum from the agile world and applies it to big program problems. It breaks down the process of resetting a major transformation into six main areas but focuses primarily on three: perspectives, playback and prioritisation, the three Ps of successful change.

Whether you are implementing a standardised framework such as SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) or you are following the Spotify model, redesigning your business model, launching a digital transformation or find yourself in the middle of any kind of change program, you are going to enter stormy waters. The chances of your change-by-design plan actually working are statistically very low and when things go wrong they go wrong in very complex ways. Transformation Sprint is a method for simplifying complexity and taking back control of a company's future.

"Organisational change is hard in its own right, only compounded by the fact that every organisation is unique and has a unique journey ahead of them. Yet across them all, there is a certain rhythm or cadence that underpins every journey. What Fin and Haydn have managed to do with Transformation Sprint is to highlight all the major touchpoints along this journey. There is something in this book for everyone, be they a business leader looking to understand the journey ahead of them, or a business consultant looking to see how best to help their clients." EVAN LEYBOURN, CEO and Co-Founder, Business Agility Institute.
