I have contributed to development of Change by Design Circle for business managers.
Design thinking has proven its worth when it’s used in projects but faces limitations when it comes to scaling and implementation in the entire organization. It is time we combine design thinking with other disciplines to truly impact organizations.
Organisations are moving from mastering change in projects to mastering change as a general capability, in order to adapt to a rapidly changing reality. Design thinking has a crucial role to play here, but the potential is challenged by traditional change management approaches. It is time to enrich traditional change management with new perspectives and methods.
Many changemakers are gaining ground and deliver results in organizations, but it’s a lonely struggle. To succeed without burning out change-makers need to meet, be inspired, exchange experiences and support and strengthen each other.
