Liz Rykert, check this out! Panarchy.

Eli Levine's curator insight, May 25, 2014 10:25 AM

An interesting article on how to bring about effective change.  I've always said, it's about changing the logic and perspective of people first.  This then influences culture, action, function and operation, which can then lead to appropriate personnel changes (if necessary) followed by changes in the architecture of the system stemming FROM the cultural and psychological changes.

 

Trouble is, I'm not sure how I can do this from where I am or with how I am at present.  I need greater access to the right people who are already in the system and I need to have enough bona fides and gravitas to be listened to seriously.

 

We'll see if I'll be able to complete my mission.

 

Think about it.

Turning the Tables on Success

After studying workplace dynamics for the past decade, I’ve found that these changes have set the stage for takers to flounder and givers to flourish.
Liz Rykert's insight:

Fav Quote form htis article on the shifts in workplace dynamics from hierarchies to cross-functional teams is: "After studying workplace dynamics for the past decade, I’ve found that these changes have set the stage for takers to flounder and givers to flourish."  

 

The power of reciprocity and the value of giving is key to the new shared or "network" leadership styles.

This is an interesting and provactive question. In school, we talked a lot about creativity and innovation, yet much remains the same as it did when I went to school. Schools look and feel the same in many ways. I experienced the irony that those who talked most about change resisted it the most.

The Eight Change Mindsets

The Eight Change Mindsets | Culture Change | Scoop.it
If your organization is seeking to create a continuous change capability, it must have a strong focus on increasing its organizational agility. As you use the Change Planning Toolkit™ to kick off your next project or your next change initiative, keep thinking about what the minimum viable progress (MVP) might be in order to maintain momentum. This is very similar to the idea of a minimum viable product, a key lean startup concept popularized by Eric Ries, author of the bestselling book, The Lean Startup. Continue reading →

Although many people, specifically from homogenous groups, might argue this, I think it is an interesting concept. I think that it is a good thing for people of different backgrounds to come together and find ways to effectively solve problems. It seems obvious that they might be better at it. L.S.

I love te writing of Chalres Duhigg.New research reveals surprising truths about why some work groups thrive and others falter.

Liz Rykert's insight:

I Love the writing or Chalres Duhigg. This is an excerpt of his forthcoming book called "Smarter Faster Better: The Secrets of Productivity in Life and Business". He was the guy who taught me all about Habits. For me there are lots of clues in his writing about organizaitonal culture and the way we form and sustain patterns of how we relate to one another.

How to Measure Culture Change Without Killing It

How to Measure Culture Change Without Killing It | Culture Change | Scoop.it
In a classic article for the Journal for Strategic Performance Measurement, Margaret Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers explain that behaviors – “commitment, focus, teamwork, learning, quality”(...), people paying “attention to those things that contribute to performance (...) are never produced by measurement. They are performance capabilities that emerge as people feel connected to their work and to each other. They are capacities that emerge as colleagues develop a shared sense of what they hope to create together (...). Each of these qualities and behaviors (...) is a choice that people make”. However, “measurement is critical” and the authors provide some insightful perspectives on design criteria for measure processes.
