Transformation requires a primary ability to recognize patterns. Any transformation effort is therefore fraught with challenges as the complexity of the pattern spreads across a cultural one, a vision one, a structure/systems one, execution and communication one – at the least.
Let us for the time being consider the pattern below. The question is, which is the logical transformed pattern (from the set in the right), in sequence with the set on the left?
We have possibly solved problems like the one below a few times as part of adaptive-intelligence tests. In reality, a successful outcome of a transformation is much more difficult to obtain as there is an element of multi-variables (not just the yellow/blue/+), a much more erratic sequence of movements and most importantly, an element of time. Whereas many challenges may be solved by a larger cohort of people with time, transformative change-drives have a lower cushion on time, which creates a significant impact on the de...
