Logical Management Tools: Unicist Change Management

There is nothing more difficult than the development of a change management strategy. It requires to be able to “read” the future, understand what would naturally happen, and then establish a strategy to influence the change that would happen naturally in order to:

Unicist Change Management1) Introduce an external element

2) Accelerate it

3) Avoid miscarriages

4) Minimize the cost of  changes

5) Maximize the benefit of change

Every change of habits implies the integration of a change of ethics and a change of the customs that are natural in the context that is being changed. Changes have to be managed considering their size:

Big Changes

They are the changes that drive towards a higher level of structured action, responsibility or risk. Big changes require drivers and catalysts to be implemented. Big changes can be divided into structured medium changes.

Medium Changes

They are those changes that seek for a more structured activity with lower risks. Medium changes cannot be divided into small changes.

Small Changes

They are changes that require no structural modifications.

Avant Garde Groups – “A” Groups –

Change agents are usually left behind after a change was successful. Avant Garde Groups were created to design and implement organizational changes. Thus the role of a Change Agent becomes virtual and is not affected after the changes are implemented. Change managers manage the change while “A” Groups do the changes.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in using the unicist logical approach in complexity science research and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. It has an academic arm and a business arm.
