About Real Change
Frank Schalkwijk
Summary
Enhance your practice for the development and change of people, businesses, systems and organizations with the ability to understand and instigate Real Change, which is change happening inherently, inevitably and presently. This is especially important nowadays, since organizations are subject to the Change Management Disruption. This disruption makes common linear practices of change and architecture management instantly obsolete and causes successful change agents to transit towards modern polar practices. Polar practices base on the unique method of Polarism which is now available through Your Smart Insights Program.

Enhance your practice with Polarism so you can 
move beyond the Change Management Disruption
Enhance your Change Management Practice for people, systems and organizations with the ability to understand and instigate Real Change, which is change happening inherently, inevitably and presently. This is especially important nowadays, since organizations are subject to the Change Management Disruption. This disruption makes common linear practices of change management instantly obsolete and causes successful change agents to transit towards modern polar practices of Change Management. Polar practices base on the unique method of Polarism which is now available through Your Smart Insights Program.
“Every time a project went wrong, we started to steer, plan and design even more tightly. What turned out? That was precisely the problem. We continuously ran after the facts. Now we act in-the-moment. We make the facts.”
Real Change
Change exists.

Change occurs presently

Change occurs inherently.

Change occurs inevitably.

Consider the case of your interest. This may involve a situation in your life. A project of your client. An organizational case or else. Here and now your case is subject to change. There are undercurrents working that push and pull your case into directions foreseen or not. Your case cannot escape from these undercurrents. The change in your case occurs presently, inherently, and inevitably. This change is Real Change.

Real Change processes are processes that happen without interference of man. This has been a fact for billions of years. It’s natural change. It is the kind of change that forms the universe and all within. It includes mechanistic as well as organismic change. Plants and animals grow, adapt and propagate on the principles of Real Change. Real Change is how we humans change.

Real change occurs in people, businesses, systems and organizations. It occurs in natural phenomena as well in artefacts we create. It occurs instantly and without plan or design. It occurs without preconceiving.

Consider the climate system. The cycle of evaporation of water from the seas, cloud forming, and rainfall is a process inherent to the climate system. This system sustains without plans and designs. The climate system functions inevitably as long as the conditions for this functioning remain set. It does not need human interference per se. The climate system is currently functioning. It does not plan and design itself. It acts and reacts at once.

Consider businesses. They exist in constant response to influences from market, technology and culture affecting the availability and control of resources and the possibility to create value from them. These influences make Real Change is occurring in businesses.
Should we understand and instigate Real Change?
We are transitioning towards a New Change Era.

The challenges we have in developing and changing people, businesses, systems and organizations become larger, more complex, dynamic, varied, more context interdependent and there is less and less time to realize them.

Less and less time is available for planning and design. Existing practices of preconceiving idealized change before having the actual change suffice no longer.

We came from an era where Ideal Change predominated Real Change.

We enter into the era where Real Change predominate Ideal Change.
The New Change Era = The Real Change Era
What if we could understand and instigate Real Change?
What if we can understand, instigate and guide desired change irrespective of the size, complexity, dynamics, variety, context interdependence, duration of a change challenge?

How does such a skill do in for your profession, for your career, for your company and for your client?

Becoming able to manage Real Change processes and systems is nowadays more relevant than ever. Systems and organizations become more sizable, dynamic and complex. There is less time available for Ideal Change kind of practices, while more need for instigating desired order. The report: “Real Change. Enhance your practice with Polarism so you can move beyond the Change Management Disruption.” Reveals what, why and how.
Now we can understand and instigate Real Change, since we have Polarism. 
Core to becoming able to understand, instigate and guide Real Change are polarities as studied by Polarism. Polarism is the method to make things arise. It reveals and make you use of the change technology that is inherent in nature.

Consider personal life examples, as there are many. Walking is a polar practice where you alternate between two linear steps. Breathing is a polar practice based on inhalation and exhalation. Thinking is a polar practice based on perceiving and conceiving. It is these polar practices that makes you alive.

Similar in organizations. The alternation between producing and consuming makes businesses grow. The alternation between specialization and generalization drives value creation. The alternation between innovation and standardization drives growth. Markets flourish on supply and demand.

Polarities make we cannot only engineer our systems and organizations, we can also let them emerge. With polarities we can engineer for emergence. We can engineer the kind of emergence we orderly want to happen, for example, within our organizational ecosystems.

We cannot plan, control and design how sectoral or industrial ecosystems will come to be. Though, we can design the emergent polar mechanism of such ecosystem. This is what we’ve seen in the cargo sector. With the introduction of containers in the sixties of last century a disruption came to happen that is unprecedented. Traditional shipment of goods turned into container shipment. Nowadays the ecosystem of container transport is one of the drivers for world economy. It is interesting to see the polar mechanisms operating in this ecosystem. For more on Polarism, click here.

For becoming able to understand, instigate and guide Real Change we need models. For this purpose, we develop Smart Insights. Smart Insights are Polarism based models that work as tools for acquiring insights under conditions of Real Change. Understanding, instigating and guiding the Real Change for a case all starts with acquiring the insights that are inherently present within that case and its situational circumstances. Therefore, we co-create and teach about Smart Insights. See Your Smart Insight Program for more.
"We used to think to be working in the organization. If there was a change all people and systems within had to change together accordingly. What a burden. Now we work on and with the organization, being it an entity in its own right. Now changes aren’t that massive. What an ease."
Your Smart Insights Program 
With the people who join Your Smart Insights Program we co-create Smart Insights. Smart Insights are Polarism based models that work as tools for acquiring insights under conditions of Real Change. We provide knowledge and community services in forms of courses, trainings and reports, so you can experience your own personal journey of enhancing your practice with the ability to understand and instigate Real Change. That means you can guide more people, systems and organizations through current times of accelerating change.
