'Change' can stand for the description of: a desired outcome, what we want, where we want to go, what's ready, realized, achieved, the plan of approach, the working method, the activities, the transition from one situation to the other. the other, the change process.

We define 'change' as: an observed or observable difference of something (a person, organization, thing, city) over a certain period of time. This means that a change can only be determined afterwards. Regardless of whether the change was planned or intended.

Although organizational changes are difficult to plan or manage, it shouldn't be an obstacle to using existing knowledge. For example, it's known about organizational changes that:

- they're often quite complex and difficult
- we shouldn't have high hopes about it
- they contain a limited but essential number of building blocks, ingredients, or elements, which can exist in different combinations and shapes
- there are five fundamentally different views of change; these give color and meaning to the ingredients and they give content and meaning to very different approaches
- there are major differences between improving and renewing an organization
- each organizational change uses a specific mix of diagnostic and intervening methods.
