Mike was relaxed and easygoing in manner. He was very professional and gave plenty of opportunity for participation, encouraging interaction between the group.
Undogmatic, which is really good. Emphasized especially "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools" and "Responding to change over following a plan" (without mentioning this).
- broad experience, interesting "side" stories, very good presentation skills, deep understanding of topic and industry.
Mike is extremely knowledgeable in various areas around "lean" and "agile". At the same time he is humble enough to accept other views and other views plus their inventors/presenters. I really like his balanced style and approach.
Mike is a great trainer and very knowledgeable in many areas such as OD, Project Management to mention only a few. He is also very flexible and help participants with specific change challenges.
A very deep knowledge in the various fields touching change management.
I will use the lean change mgmt concept right away on my next change project! This workshop is a 100% recommendation.
- rich of experience - non dogmatic - honest - straight foreward
The format that the facilitator used in combining "lecture", working groups and discussion groups generated a lot of discussion and learning from him as well as other participants. The topics were practical and not just theory which is very helpful.

He is well experienced and understands very well the mental shift required from managers to recognise their current management style and facilitated really well how to progress into a different style, i.e. managing a complicated environment vs managing a complex environment. He also provided practical tools to use to facilitate the move.
