Artful Transformation (Conscious Agility)

July 30, 2011

Artful Transformation (also known as artful vitalization or Conscious Agility) is an experientially derived and proven approach to transformation resulting from over three decades of major transformation work.

Artful Transformation is not a traditional change management approach or a new change management approach. Artful Transformation is not a theoretical or speculative approach to transformation.

Artful Transformation has been described & distilled and supported with a “public” case study (who, why, how, and the results).

Transformation involves fundamental change that fosters organizational health (performance and well-being).

Enterprise transformation involves the fundamental change of an enterprise, not merely causing the enterprise to change its structure or processes, but causing the enterprise to change its culture (expressed through language, relationships, and behaviors), which may in turn cause the enterprise to change its structure and processes. Organizational health involves a high performing enterprise that thrives within its context.

Transition is a practice-based change that primarily focuses on surface level behavior while a transformation is a value/principle-based change that focuses on the DNA of an enterprise.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that Artful Transformation offers a 3 to 5 times improvement in organizational health (performance and well-being)! See the recommendations for more information!

Phase I involves establishing a transformation team, deriving a “minimal” framework, and socializing and refining the framework for adoption, which ensures awareness of the aspects of the enterprise.

Phase II: Foundation

Phase II is described & distilled and supported with a “public” case study.

Phase II involves enacting and elaborating the framework, and renewing value-creation capabilities for adoption and scale, which ensures the dynamics within the enterprise.

Phase III: Evolution

Phase III is described & distilled and supported with a “public” case study.

Phase III involves enacting and evolving the framework, renewing oversight capabilities, and fostering communities for scale and sustainability, which ensures the wholeness of the enterprise.
