Strategy Development

Change is a transition process for a system to move from the current to the future. A system, as a whole, is a collection of elements organized to achieve specific purposes, typically to create value. An organization can be viewed as a system. A strategy is the approach or overall plan for change. There are three common forms of change: evolution, transformation, and revolution.

  • Evolution continuously improves the current system in terms of efficiency and effectiveness.
  • Transformation turns the current system into another or other forms to deliver various values from future perspectives.
  • Revolution abandons the current system and establishes a new one.
