We live in an unprecedented time of change that will continue to increase at an unprecedented rate. And the magnitude and complexity of these changes are growing.
Transformational changes are those that require a complete overhaul of strategy, structure, processes, technology, and skills (e.g., digital transformation, grid modernization, mergers and acquisitions). These transformations require a creative, agile, proactive mindset and a whole system approach to achieve long-term goals.
Why is a whole system approach so vital?
Many whole-system models have been used for years to support large-scale organizational change. Given the ever-changing world we now live in, the Leadership System—how leaders show up and drive transformation—is the most vital of all. Leaders are the central driving force for continually assessing, designing, and aligning the other five organizational systems—Business Strategy, Work, People, Climate, and Business Results.
