"Our change projects fail over and over,
but we have no idea why."

Hi! I’m Edwin van der Geest, a change agent who used to be managing director at a successful IT Company. And I heard a lot of colleague managing directors and change agents talk about “our change projects fail over and over but we have no idea why”. Our changes did work successfully but, back in that time, we had no idea why either. And now we do. Because change didn’t happen to my employees, they initiated and where part of the change.

Prototyping.Work is founded based on the belief that successful change only can happen in a constant and participatory manner. Don’t force old fashioned (and proven unsuccessful) ways of changing to your employees, but invite them to lead and be part of it. 

 

<explanation about who we are as prototyping.work, and why we do what we do.>

Take small steps, not large steps

Here is an example that perfectly illustrates why it’s good to take smaller steps. If you think about it, it’s obvious.

<example that strikes, is familiar for everyone etc. Such as something like changing a way of working for an entire department, only later to realise that won’t work because of some obscure reason>

Most change frameworks are projects, not processes

<2-3 sentences why this is a bad thing>

We built a methodology that facilitates change as a process. All our combined experience comes together in this methodology.

Prototyping.Workbooks explain all you need to know about our methodology and help you to put it into practice, step by step.

What we put inside our workbooks

You won't just read it. You'll be guided while applying it!

At first, we planned to write a book about our methodology. However, we soon realised that applying all the lessons, tips, inspiration, exercises and examples yourself can be immensely difficult. And not only that, it would mean another management literature talking about change, but not actually help you. 

That’s why we decided to make three workbooks instead. Each one tackles a different part of the process and guides you through with concise steps, easy exercises and examples that inspire.

The steps

<explanation about how many steps we have, what they roughly cover, if you can stop halfway and pick up the next day, who can go through them, etc>

We’ve developed a growing number of tools and exercises you’ll love. To innovate the way you work

The exercises

<explanation about the exercises>

Learn from real-life examples. And get inspired by insider tips from the expert in their field.​

Inspiring examples & Insider tips

Got stuck during the process? Don’t worry, we got you covered with inspiring and real-life examples. Learn from actual teams who’ve done what you are about to do. 

And if that doesn’t get you going we’ve asked dozens of experts in the field, share their insider tips with you. From Coert Prins, to Ben MacKenzie. And from Erwin Lengkeek to Edwin van der Geest. 

Print-friendly canvasses

From one post-it to an actual tangible and ambitious plan in a manner of minutes, not hours or days. That is what a Canvas potentially can do for you. Canvasses are great tools to guide you through a thought process.

We’ve created A3 sized canvasses for you to print and use in your team sessions.

Extra curated content

There is so much more valuable content out there. And we’ve collected and curated the most valuable ones for you. 

Links to great articles and practices to keep reading and get inspired.

How the Prototyping.Workbooks will transform the way you approach changes at work

How the Prototyping .Workbooks will transform the way you approach changes at work​

The Prototyping.Workbooks are a great way to experience the power of the methodology. For leaders, HR professionals, and change agents who want to ignite a transition in their organisation. A transition to becoming a progressive organization. We believe that transition starts with a Tension. Which is the gap between where you are and where you want to be. But more importantly, it’s the kickstart of your change adventure!

.Workbook series

Follow The Tension

Find the one thing that is holding you back. This is the kickstarter for your change adventure. Once you have this, it will never leave your side. Use it to find opportunities for improvements, gather learnings, or to chase the obstacles.
