3. Planning | Te whakamahere

Tē tōia, tē haumatia.

Nothing can be achieved without a plan, a workforce and a way of doing things.

Illustration: A woman with brown hear wearing a white shift is sat at a desk and writing on a large white piece of paper. Alongside her is a woman in a blue shirt who is talking and a Māori elder. They are all smiling. Behind them is a mountain range with the sun just on the edge of them. This chapter provides insights on:

  • Designing transition processes
  • Understanding the system
  • Developing a shared vision and values
  • Communicating with others
In this section

Designing transition processes

How people organise their work together can be structured in different ways, reflecting the diverse contexts in which transitions arise.

Understanding the system

Systems thinking makes sense of the complexity of the world by looking at the linkages and interactions between parts, rather than by studying parts individually.

Developing a shared vision and values

Working together to identify a shared vision and values can help a diverse group choose a common direction.

Communicating with others

From the start of your transition process, you need to think about how you will communicate about it with people both inside and outside the process – especially those that will be affected by it.
