Phases of Transformation
In our transformation philosophy we follow the logic of Darwin, and the idea that “responsiveness” is the key to survival: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change.”
The same applies for organisations; that “responsiveness” – which is synonymous with the ability to transform – is one of the most important capabilities needed to not only to survive in a dynamic environment but also to succeed. As we understand it, transformation management is more than human change management, transformation management should affect the whole organisation. Therefore we have developed a framework for helping organisations with transformation processes. This can be summed up with four easy words representing two phases:
Think – Design – Plan – Do. Think & Design embodies the phase of operationalisation of transformation, Plan & Do stands for the phase of implementation.
Therefore we are convinced that managing transformations intentionally and in a goal-oriented way is one of the most important tasks of an organisation.
