When change is complex with high degrees of uncertainty, typical methods of ‘change management’ can be insufficient – a better way to plan and operate through changing, is principles-based. To be principles-based, is to know the principles relevant to the situation, and apply these when deciding and taking action.
Questo has created Change Design Principles to bring a design sensibility to organisational change.
These are principles to apply in making change in organisations; they are design principles to influence design choices.
To design is to make intentional decisions about the form and function of something, so it might do or be something desirable for a user. In organisational change that ‘something’ might be a program of change activity; a specific activity or experience; or an object or interaction that addresses a need or problem.
