Article: Change Management – Leading in to discomfort

Jan
24

In 2019, Government News asked for my thoughts on change management in public sector organisations.

Discomfort is often associated with fear, risk and danger, and people at all professional levels often try to avoid it.

BCG Extract: Change Management progression

Jan

Found this a few years ago in a Boston Consulting Group article on change leadership. It’s a pretty good summary of the process people in large, distributed organisations go through when change comes their way.

My favourite point is the sweet-spot between the justification in step 7, and the realisation in step 8.

On Distant Shores

Next in the series. I took the original photo of bright orange cocoanut palms on the beach in Fiji in mid 2017. The afternoon sun brought a blaze of natural colour, stained ochre by salt and nature. In this rendition, the fronds glow blue in the starlight, and the ocean casts prism fluorescence.

Moon Corona, and Between the Clouds

May
02

Two experimental pieces tonight.

“Moon Corona” started with a captured image of the full moon setting behind the Earth taken from the International Space Station (credit: NASA). In this version it appears inverted, a coronial flare in pale bone and deep blue.

Between the Clouds is a playful blending of colours, set against stepped layers of cloud captured on my way to the station one morning. I particularly liked the black/white/blue blending, and the layers of autumnal oranges at the base.
