2.They do what they’ve always done and their contributions look very similar to the status quo.They solve problems and realise opportunities by collaboratively designing creative solutions that suit the context and leverage the system. They aim for sophisticated simplicity and do not reinvent wheels.
3.They don’t do change management.They design the behaviour change that must occur for their solutions to be enacted.
4.They write how they’ve always written and their documents look like a thousand others.They design and deliver whatever information is needed for their solutions to be enacted.
