We live in a complex world fraught with challenges that require large-scale change. Thus all of us need to become change experts who can function at the individual, organizational and societal levels. These statements echo the themes of Katrin Muff’s blog last month. I agree with her premises. Therefore, this month I will build on her idea by examining the importance of mental models to change expertise. This is a complicated and much discussed topic, and I don’t intend to cover it thoroughly. I will merely introduce it in this blog and include my arguments as to why it is important for change expertise.
