Change Ability

Abstract:As in other areas, rapid change is becoming the norm in the quality arena. While many change efforts focus on organizational and process matters or try to reduce variation, a transformational change initiative creates a significant change in the underlying systems of an organization and uses that change to create breakthrough results. This creates a step pattern of improvements that is objectively measurable as well as a subjective change in organizational reality. Transformation comes from within the self, and it begins with self-discovery in the four spheres of transformation: being, knowing, relating, and generating.

Very theoretical.. philosophical article on Quality. This change cannot be made by Quality professionals.. this has to be made by the CEO and his staff... Quality professionals by themselves will marvel at this article for the content..... Ground level action and their ability to infleuence is very limited... Good and useful spiritual article.. good for reading and dreaming...

The article is good but very philosophical. Not rooted at all in reality of organizational behaviours and dynamics. This will work for a owner driven organization of 100 or 200 people where the Owner himself/herself drives this change. Yes, there is a lot of higher order purpose, self realization, spirituality in this article.. Good to read......

Profound information; deep into the substance that really roots the tree of change. Much more than a business related article...thanks!

Excellent article - every quality person must try it.

Excellent article. I would strongly encourage every member to read it and implement it in their sphere of influence and control. It's applicable to all employees and individuals beyond quality professionals. I am sure the person who's equipped with the skills and traits of transformation sciences will be the most sought-after future leaders in the next few years.

It was fantastic to see the core issues that hamper the success of transformation (change management) put forward so succinctly. One other aspect of a successful transformation is the person driving the change. All the attributes stated in the article and absolute clarity of purpose for driving the change need to be there in the change manager, as well as unconditional respect for all, to make it a success for individuals and the organization. Thanks for a brilliant article.

Good article, but a little too whimsical and philosophical for me to submit to my bosses and take it seriously.
