#WorkingOutLoud Finding The Change Story

I’m presenting a workshop around the work i’ve been doing for ‘The Change Handbook’ today: it’s the first time i’ve been able to present this work in it’s entirety, with the new framework that i completed a couple of weeks ago (when i finished the first draft manuscript of the book), so i thought that my preparation would be easy. Not so. I’ve spent the three hour train journey restructuring, editing, shortening, the presentation.

The Change Story

I’ve been searching for the story. Not just any story: the story of how change happens, of how it’s constrained, of how we build the Socially Dynamic Organisation. Finding the narrative can be a complex process, but to get to simplicity, we often have to weather complexity.

The Dynamic Change Framework

Sometimes a story is stronger when it’s shorter, when it creates the space for reflection, without feeling the need to fill in all the spaces. Much the same as the way we should view change in fact: in a Dynamic Change approach, we would frame the change, but allow the community to co-create and co-own it.
