the architecture for success 

at investing in change

After 20 years of working with people worldwide

and encouraged by some of my best business friends

I designed an integrated ‘reference model’ for what

makes an enterprise excellent at investing in change

It looks like this

At its heart is your board-level Change Portfolio

which needs to be goals-driven, dynamic and efficient

It’s also method-proof, which means you can use it to

invest in all kinds of changes (waterfall, agile, etc) 

with one overall strategy, portfolio and culture

and one end-to-end and consistent investment process
