Change Curve: Filling in the Gaps

Yesterday i finished the first pass through the Change Curve framework: it’s been fun writing it over the last couple of months and i’m thinking about taking some time to develop it into a book. As i’ve been reading through it today, it struck me that i’ve missed out a section, leaving a gap which i’ll plug.

Change Curve - Filling the gaps

The Change Curve framework shows three manifestations of change: where an organisation is ‘Resistant‘ to change, ‘Constrained‘ by it’s own activities, or ‘Dynamic‘ and agile. I’ve expanded on each manifestation and also developed the Dynamic Change model, which is what we can use to get from ‘Constrained‘ to ‘Dynamic‘.

Change Curve - Dynamic Change

The piece i still need to unpack further, is how to overcome resistance: how to beat the antibodies. The question mark shows the space i need to fill.

This type of #WorkingOutLoud approach is highly iterative: you don’t start with a framework to fill, but rather build up the framework as it emerges, through the writing. So that’s the piece i’ll work on next as i travel over the next few weeks.
