Now, have a think about your organisation:
Q1: What metaphor(s) are prevalent there?
Q2: What implications does this have for leadership and change initiatives?
Brains! We are automated and digitized.
Leaders use the technology and change is usually collaborative with lots of ideas and technology is usually involved.
Thanks for your contribution Matt! It’s great that your company is using their strengths during change. What type of technology has been used during change?
We use SharePoint for sharing information and MS Teams for collaboration
We are a gov department – think we are a mix of flux and transformation 99% of the time but at times the Gov. do sway what we do…. So then we will become that political system..
Thank you for your contribution.
Seems like there are two metaphors at play here, Flux and Transformation and Political systems. Metaphors can be equal in nature or one can be more dominant than the other.
Q1: The metaphors which are prevalent in my organisations are brains and political systems.
Q2: The change in a SaaS company is a natural part and the leadership manages different points of views on how the software should evolve in an efficient manner. In regards to the political system, I need to use the power of other team members and key players to move along the change initiatives.
