There exists a well defined set of possible ways to alter an existing set of interactions. Each of these alterations will produce a particular effect depending on the relations the change is relative to. Identifying which are possible and which will migrate the interactions to produce the desired situation is the essence of the strategy. There is a also a video
for this insight which is a component of the Effective Problem Solving Course
There are a set of well defined approaches for modifying the structure responsible for the patterns of behavior leading up to the current situation. These will be surfaced in the following steps.
Most clearly perceived though rarely change behaviors and have little long term effect.
Buffers can be used to stabilize systems.
Structure may have a marked impact though may be very difficult to effect.
Length of delays relative to changes.
Employ to slow down processes.
Use to speed up processes.
Easier to change information flows than structure.
Changes the manner in which the system operates without changing structure.
Power to self-organize.
Changing the goal changes everything before this.
The paradigm of the system is responsible for all those leverage points which proceed this.
Going beyond simply challenging assumptions.
As you progress closer and closer to Transcend Paradigms (1) the more leverage the change has though often the more difficult it is to effect.
