Synopsis:
Change is soooo fun!!! No? Even if you agree (as a BA, it is your daily world, correct?), I would expect that is not always the sentiment of your stakeholders, particularly with difficult or sensitive change. So, how do you shift the negative limbic response to a positive limbic response so you can get to the good stuff….logic? In this session we will discover the power of fun in change, learn the basics of several techniques (such as MindMapping, Speedboat and Flip It) that turn scary into fun!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discover how fun shifts the psychological response to negative emotion
  2. Understand some of the techniques to turn scary change into a little fun
  3. Practice application of a “fun” technique – audience choice
