their behavior and their coordinating
structure
• Societal Change
–as people and organizations change

Fractal aspect of change

Putting change into perspective
All change begins with one person
Virtually all good ideas build on ideas of
others
BIG things tend to be undoable.
However, great change arises from collective
action, individually doing what we can within
our area of influence.

Levels (scale) of Change – Summary
• Each of these levels of change - individual,
organizational, and social - is interconnected.
• Organizations don't change without people
making an individual decision to join the
collective change movement.
• People are changed by their daily activities and
how they see themselves creating value for the
organization.
• Society itself evolves as people and the
organizations they inhabit change in mission and
action.
