With change comes responsibility. To lessen the risks with making any changes is by understanding the cause and affect. In the analysis of how you like to change we bring a precision of measuring the 10 variations of change.
1. Contentment with today. 2. There is something wrong but you cannot put your finger on it. 3. The frustration you are feeling. 4. The energy level as you emerge from frustration – that eureka moment. 5. Arrival at a new destination that you have worked towards. 6. Your preference for living with chaos. 7. Your preference for order. 8. Your preference for incremental change. 9. Your preference for major step changes. 10. How much you are in ‘the zone’ to make changes happen.
Also considered are the barriers to change, your preferences for left or right brain thinking and your ‘hidden’ cultural values.
By understanding these change variations of yourself and your group, change becomes smoother and more sustainable. Run through the model below.

Change and the Workplace
In today’s environment organisations and individuals have to cope with continuous change. The ageing process is the most natural change, but in the drive for greater efficiency, greater returns and instant personal fulfillment we are deluged with instant solutions.
What is in vogue today – 6 sigma – ISO 9000 – TQM – Project Management – Zero based Accounting – Lean Manufacturing – Knowledge Management – CRM – EVA – CAD – PDM – EQ – SQ – Internet Web 2.0 – Intranet – e-mail, Blogs, Sustainability, Environmental concerns to name a few. To this is added the generational interplay from the baby boomers to Gen Y and Gen X. There is the need to integrate different cultures and have diversity in the workplace and the community.
Does this cause confusion
All these tools have a use and place and are useful to have in the life’s toolbox, but continuous change needs the commitment, understanding of groups and individuals.
In today’s complexity the philosophy is to help people reinvent the wheel and find a strategy and way a forward that is suitable and sustainable for their current life conditions.
The method we have developed over the last 15 years become part of your team to help in the discovery of your critical success factors. However you want to measure them, the effects that they cause on the today’s life conditions and an action plan and audit cycle against the your critical success factors.
We are entering the Holistic age where wholes are part of other wholes to become a ‘Holon’
There are many change models and the one used here is based on 15 years research. Some of the thinking is covered here to give some of the background on the development of the model.
