The story behind Change Punk
When it comes to organizational development, there is certainly no shortage of tools, management methods and qualified coaches.
Quite the opposite, in fact. The market is practically flooded with them.
If this is the case, then why do so many organizations still struggle to make real progress?
The honest answer is:
Organizational development is inherently complex!
And when something is complex, it requires “complexity masters” rather than “tool junkies”.
But to master complexity, you must be “radically honest” and focus on what is truly needed.
After 23 years of experience in organizational development, we discovered that this unfortunately doesn't happen in more than 90% of all companies - often due to the everyday madness that is all too normal.
To break free from this, it takes more than "Change Management". It takes a revolution!
From this idea, the concept of “Change Punk” was born – the most radically honest approach to organizational development.
