Transformational change is the process of altering the basic elements of an organization’s culture, including the norms, values, and assumptions under which the organization functions. Getting some great comments directly, off the record and in articles and comments in our August issue about the “Transformational Change” that is happening to allow the Map of the possible.
Paul Ehrlich our contributing editor provides this wisdom that started our August theme; As you are aware we have already written roadmaps for intelligent buildings. No harm in doing this again – but is this what we really need? Or perhaps it is something else – like a transformative change in how the industry is structured? The bottom line to date is; “the possible is presently impossible without transformative change, but the map of the possible is leading rapidly to help define the needs of that Transformative change that is now required everywhere in our industry.”
But Transformative change is happening everywhere but just not fast enough for our clients and yes even ourselves. If we do not lead the change someone else will and our industry will suffer the consequences of that.
I am pleased that spurred on by my attempts to build a map of the possible that we have several great articles on extending the possible and how we all can lead “Transformational Change”. Please feel free to join in with comments and or articles and interviews to share your opinions.
