    Nudge:

    Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness

    This book by Richard Thaler (winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics) and Cass Sunstein (winner of the Holberg Prize) examines how we makes choices and what influences or "nudges" affect those choices. Sunstein and Thaler use dozens of examples to show that all choices are inherently influenced by how that choice is presented. They then demonstrate how "we can use sensible 'choice architecture' to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting freedom of choice."

    As change managers we are inherently trying to influence our stakeholders to make choices that lead to the success of the change. Join us for this engaging discussion as we consider the place of behavioral economics in change management and how we can use nudges in our own work. 

    Your Facilitator: Dr. Kristen Wright has a PhD in English and taught English, rhetoric and communications at the Catholic University of America and the United States Naval Academy to both undergraduate and graduate students. Interested in more directly applying the theory and concepts that she had been teaching, Kristen made the switch to consulting. There, her background and interest in rhetoric then drew her naturally to change management and how we can more effectively persuade people to embrace new ideas and activities. She currently works in the Health Sector of Guidehouse Consulting where she is a change management SME and trainer. In addition to her consulting work, Kristen currently serves on the board of the ACMP Washington D.C. chapter as the Communications Director.

    As always, if you don't have time to read the whole book, then please feel free to join us for the conversation anyway. For more information on the book and for some other resources on Nudge and how nudges are used, see the links below:

    Registration for ACMP DC members is $10, for Non-members and friends is $15.

    Join us for the April edition of the ACMP DC speaker series:

    What do you mean Change?

    Unleashing collective learning with the Change Canvas, a shared language of analysis and action planning for your change initiative

    presented by Adriano Pianesi

    In your current work for change, do you struggle to communicate the big picture so that people understand how all the puzzle pieces fit together? When you engage with others in your work for change, are you unable to encourage others to really contribute to your vision? Do you spend more time developing/debating ideas rather than testing them in the real world?

    The Change Canvas is a visual framework that frames strategic conversations about change with large groups. It turns the complexity of organizational change into the simplicity of a visual, step-by-step process of filling in 10 boxes.

    The Change Canvas was created to address the issues above by drawing on the author’s consulting work in change initiatives, graduate teaching on change management at the Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School, and lived experiences leading organizational change as a manager. Inspired by design thinking and powered by the practical wisdom and insights on change from the Adaptive Leadership framework, the Change Canvas embodies the stances of radical inclusion, large group methods, and the ongoing experiential learning of action research.

    As a practical tool for change-makers, the Change Canvas facilitates sense-making for organizational change, learning, and innovation and can help in a variety of change initiatives. Join us in a fast-paced, hands-on session to learn:

    • How to deconstruct your organization change in to 10 key components
    • How to validate and de-risk you change analysis/strategy for consistency to avoid wasting time on efforts that are doomed to fail
    • How to focus your change strategy meetings and avoid misunderstandings by building psychological ownership that mobilizes a variety of stakeholders and enrolls them in your work. 
    • How to institutionalize a Change Canvas Huddle, an ongoing learning process that invites people to both find holes in and enrich your analysis/strategy for change.

    Participants will receive two sample Change Canvases from “Jack” and “Lisa” (fictional names of real clients) to experience how the model increases success by forcing change-makers to:

    • Put in writing assumptions about how change will play out, simplifying the critical work of developing, sharing, and testing plans
    • Stay focused on both analysis AND action in their change initiatives, to avoid turning their work for change into a faith-based journey driven by righteousness;
    • Uphold a strong vision while keeping at the center facts, observed behaviors, or actual events—not just conviction in the quality of the initial thinking
    • Stress-test ideas about change before implementation to minimize personal and organizational risk, increase chances of success, and protect reputations.

He holds an MBA from the University of Milan and certificates in design thinking from a variety of institutions, including, IDEO and LUMA Institute.
