Do you often find yourself in situations where you’re trying to influence an team’s direction, only to be met with unpredictable outcomes? If so, you’re not alone. The world of Agile coaching is a complex and ever-changing landscape, and success can sometimes seem elusive. But fear not, because we have a tool that can help you navigate this complexity and increase your chances of achieving your coaching goals. Welcome to the world of the Plausibility Canvas.
Precision versus Plausibility
In the world of Agile coaching, it’s essential to recognise that there’s no magic formula for guaranteed success. Why? Because organisations are intricate, politically charged environments where every member acts according to their own intentions. Managing uncertainty in such a dynamic space is futile. Instead, we must learn to embrace and work within unpredictability.
In complex environments like these, precision is a mirage. Rather than striving for pinpoint accuracy, it’s more effective to work with plausibilities. This shift in mindset is at the heart of our approach – the Plausibility Canvas.
Agile Coaching – A Constant Evolution
Agile coaching is far from a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s an ongoing journey that demands continuous observation, the identification of dysfunctional behaviours, hypothesis formation, and adaptive decision-making. As Agile coaches, we deal with complex human interactions, which can be as unpredictable as they are rewarding.
Many Agile coaches turn to the Cynefin Framework as a tool to understand complexity and embrace experimentation. While it’s a valuable resource, it’s important to remember that it doesn’t guarantee success. It is not a complexity model either. Success in the Agile coaching realm is not a one-size-fits-all equation. It’s a constantly shifting landscape influenced by numerous factors.
The Power of Experimentation
Conducting experiments in complex domains is essential. However, it’s vital to recognise that a successful experiment doesn’t reveal a universal cause-and-effect relationship. Instead, it highlights a particular relationship in a specific context and moment in time. Human interactions and organisational dynamics are inherently complex, making predictability a challenging endeavour.
The Plausibility Canvas Approach
In the unpredictable world of Agile coaching, control is an illusion. What you can control, though, is your approach. The Plausibility Canvas offers a structured way to navigate this complexity, taking into account the challenges you face.
Here’s where it gets exciting. The Plausibility Canvas is a powerful tool that can revolutionise your Agile coaching efforts. Using it, you’ll have the opportunity to explore and apply this canvas to your specific challenges. It provides a systematic approach to dealing with observed dysfunctional behaviours, helping you map out plausible changes for the better.
