What is change? by Agnesia Agrella

Have you actually ever taken some time to think about “What is change”?

I have been looking at this concept for a long time and it started when technology made it possible to automate processes in organizations. The companies I worked with wanted to use technology to improve their service, improve the quality of their products and execute deliveries faster to  their customers. I love to learn and I love visiting factories to observe how raw material turn into products. It has always been a bit of magic for me. So, solving business problems and using technology has always fascinated me and I found myself in a career that supported my curiosity.

 As my career progressed and I started to work on large change programmes, I realized not everybody likes change and to make lasting change in any organization you need the people to change. I also realized that I cannot make people change and that is where my curiosity on What Is Change began. 

Today after many years of searching, study and experimentation I think I finally found the answer to this question and over the next couple of weeks I would like to take you a discovery of

“WHAT IS CHANGE?

I hope that you will engage with me via my platform, through commenting and responding on my blog. Let's start with a definition of change

Change is:

  • A general transition of something or phase to another state condition. 
  • A noun here meaning the act or fact of changing; fact of being changed. 
  • Implies movement toward a goal, an idealized state, or a vision of what should be and movement away from present conditions, beliefs, or attitudes. 
  • A never-ending process of readjustment and re-adaptation, as man responds behaviourally to ever-changing circumstances
  • The process of making different
  • To make or become different or to exchange one thing for another thing, especially of a similar type.
  • The act of becoming different, or the result of something becoming different
  • Actions that result in the transformation of a given aspect of work. 
  • It means that something is transformed into something else in a planned or unplanned way in time.
  • To make the nature, content, or course of something different from what it is currently. 
  • Any type of change that can occur in values institutions have. 
  • Any type of difference that can occur in the vocational life of a person. 
  • The act or process of making something different. 
  • The opposite of static whereby events, ideas, processes transform / morph into different artefacts.
  • To make or become different. 

change concept is a general notion or approach to change that has been found to be useful in developing specific ideas for changes that lead to improvement. Creatively combining these change concepts with knowledge about specific subjects can help generate ideas for tests of change.

Change is natural and in nature all living entities change or transform naturally without resisting or questioning. 

Life happens, and what happens is something called change. Some changes are the result of biology and the passage of time, within the natural cycle or order of things.

Nature can change all by herself without the hand of man.

If change is a natural event, why is change so difficult for humans?
