Having worked in change environments for many years and used a wide range of change models for many different types of change we found it useful to collate and categorise models for ease of reference
In this update to our taxonomy we have added Change Rx, Galbraith Star Model, Positive Deviance and Whole System Transformation; further enhancements are welcomed.
In compiling this taxonomy we were surprised at the volume of change related models, in some ways a testament to the views that change can be challenging and the search for a formulaic approach that it could be argued is not possible given that humans are wonderfully unique and change situations can be highly varied. Our view is that understanding, appreciation, empathy, flexibility and resilience coupled with a desire to learn are foundational capabilities that can help those delivering change to be in a resourceful state in order that they support others and deliver effective change.
We hope you find this taxonomy of use.
