Based on my training and experience in personal and business innovation, I’ve defined a 10 step framework for creating sustainable change, which can be applied in any transformation or product development project. It’s grounded in principles of product development, systems engineering, project management, and applied human performance. This framework will be the foundation for products including tools, online courses, books, and services including training and coaching.
