Roles in transitions
Flatland’s mission is: “Drawing a better world together”. Our visual consultant Lotte de Wolde combined her personal interest in systems thinking and transitions with this mission and followed the ‘Transition Maker Training’ developed by DRIFT, SustainableMotion and Squarewise. This took place in October 2021 and was no ordinary training, but a true adventure in which participants immersed themselves in the complexity of transitions and also gained insight into their own role and the impact they can make.
The “roles in transitions” was one of the visual models used during the training.
You can find out which role you play by asking yourself what you are good at and what you are passionate about. Lotte recognized herself and Flatland as connector: bringing people together by making relevant knowledge visual and accessible and creating a shared vision. This also helped her in understanding better what roles our customers take on.
She visually summarized these valuable insights in a visual that was picked up by Wouter van Noort, a journalist from the NRC. He shared this on LinkedIn and soon hundreds of responses poured in from people who recognized themselves in the visual and want to use it for their own work. The power of visualization is extremely valuable, especially in this time change, to get a better grip on a transition and to share that with a wider audience.
Lotte is currently working together with other colleagues to give a more concrete interpretation to working in transitions. Internal and external sessions will follow.
Until then, the visualization below is available as a download, so that you can already use it in your work!Download visual
