Change is a Natural Process
amani gera, Accountant, Egypt, Member
If we think about change as a natural process in life...
This occurs from two related lines:
1. The theory of chaos and self organization on the one hand, and
2. Complexity theory on the other hand.
As Gareth Morgan said: 'Examine the flocking of birds; inspite of all the unpredicitability, coherent order always emerges out of the randomness and surface chaos'.

Cynefin Framework and Types of Change
Gary Wong, Consultant, Canada, Premium Member
Amani: check out the Cynefin framework. Complexity and chaos theory is applied here to distinguish between traditional "idealistic" and "naturalistic" change.
- Idealistic change is appropriate if the situation is on the ordered side (complicated and simple domain) because cause and effect relationships exist.
- However, where there is unpredictability, uncertainty, and no known cause/effect relationships, we are on the unordered side of complexity and chaos. Here the change process must be naturalistic; that is, we let the system find the solution. This is where your statement "change as a natural process in life" makes sense.
