The Dynamics of Generative Change

The Generative Change Model emerged from studies of successful transformational change, and is a way to approach organizational change more aligned with today’s needs for an agile and engaged workforce than planned change methods.  This session will look at the key differences between the traditional planned change model and the generative change model,  the conditions under which planned change and generative change are most appropriate, the mindset that is required of leaders and consultants to use a generative change approach and some of the key choices practitioners face in using a generative change approach.
