Managing Change - by Bob Dick

In which a description of the overall change process is described as having three phases.  Pre-planning requires negotiating roles and building relationships.  Planning involves setting goals, analysing the situation, deciding what to do, and deciding how to monitor it.  Action has two parts, implementation and monitoring.

With few exceptions, intentional change is future change.  The present is already determined by its past.  As individuals and organisations and communities, we carry much of our history with us.  However, what we do today can make future change easier or harder to achieve.

Today is determined by its history.  Today is part of tomorrow's history.
