Description

Many organizational changes founder and plod toward uncertain and disappointing results. Why? Because most most change processes assume a simple step-wise approach to a complex issue. Complex change requires leadership that connects, recognizes that emotional responses matter, and change can't be driven, only supported.

3 types of change: Esther Derby designing environments for agile success +1 612.239.1214 esther@estherderby.com www.estherderby.com twitter: @estherderby (c) 2014 esther derby

Simple and Linear Esther Derby designing environments for agile success +1 612.239.1214 esther@estherderby.com www.estherderby.com twitter: @estherderby (c) 2014 esther derby

Change is a matter of moving from one point to another. Both points are knowable and known. Esther Derby designing environments for agile success +1 612.239.1214 esther@estherderby.com www.estherderby.com twitter: @estherderby (c) 2014 esther derby

Dynamic, but Predictable Esther Derby designing environments for agile success +1 612.239.1214 esther@estherderby.com www.estherderby.com twitter: @estherderby (c) 2014 esther derby

Both points are knowable and known. If you know enough about point A, you can apply the correct force to move to point B. Put the change in motion, and it will follow a predictable path.

Complex and Unfolding The end point isn’t clear from where you stand now…and isn’t /the end/. Many paths are possible. Some paths only appear after earlier changes take hold.

In his article, Slow Ideas, Atul Gawande tells the story of how new methods for maternal & infant care took hold in a busy hospital. 
 
 At the end of his article, Dr. Gawande interviews one of the nurses, asking her about why she listened to the younger, less experienced nurse sent to teach the new methods.

“Why did you listen to her?” I asked. “She had only a fraction of your experience.” ! In the beginning, she didn’t, the nurse admitted. ! “The first day she came, I felt the workload on my head was increasing.” From the second time, however, the nurse began feeling better about the visits. She even began looking forward to them. ! “Why?” I asked.
