What the solution was

The Emyrs cycle of change (ECC)Is an information visualization and conceptual model meant to be read like a compass, a clock, and a map. It was devised to help teach designers how to identify the modes, dynamics, and mechanics of change. By learning how to better facilitate and manage change it helps designers navigate how to shape change, how to articulate it, react because of it, influence it and harness their capacity and value in transformational projects.

What problem did it solve?

The problem is that many designers do not understand the dynamics and mechanics of change and are unable to link that to their recommendations and facilitate that journey along.

What was interesting about the problem

This sensemaking investigation shows what forces influence change, outlining the consciousness and movements of those changes, the modalities those changes go through and the types of change that will determine the magnitude of the type transformation that will occur when designing.

What did I change?

  • From a design perspective, I adjusted how we explain how change occurs and how to pinpoint where you are on the transformation journey.
