Four areas
• Look at change management processes
• Self-knowledge: knowing your own dominant
color
• People-knowledge: the dominant color of
your counterpart
• Enlarging your repertoire as an actor in
change management within your own setting
Conceptuel provisions
• It makes clear and it conceptualizes the
communication between people, it provides a
shared language
• It makes clear from which prepositions and
paradigms people think when they discuss planned
change, how to process change
• It provides situational concepts for the choice and
application of the change approach. Knowing this,
a more effective change approach can be
suggested / implemented
Coping with change
• Yellow:
negotiation and influencing
• Blue:
planning and measuring
• Red:
motivating and supporting
• Green:
learning and sharing
• White:
letting it go and facilitating
