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.
