To summarize a long story: the Change Journey Map contributed to a positive outcome.

But let's start from the beginning. Here was a team under enormous pressure…

Change is Hardest in the Middle

Today, I found a great blog post from Rosabeth Moss Kanter which suits well to the concept of the Change Journey. She describes the difficult journey which often starts with excitement that quickly turns into disappointment and grievances:

My Second Car is a Rickshaw

In the last days, I had my first discussions with different members of this community on how to implement the global workshops in which the Change Journey Map will be implemented. It looks likely that we will start in Amsterdam, have 2-3 more workshops in Europe, than move over to Asia and Australia. Then, the journey will continue in North America and maybe South Africa.

In one of my first discussions with… Continue

The Agora

We have now an Agora. In ancient Greek city-states, the Agora was an open "place of assembly".

Additionally, each "place" has it's own small Agora. I don't think it is possible to aggregate all discussions at one place in this platform but maybe it is… Continue
