Q: what is formula transformation?

A: First of all, let us say here that we don?t believe in "change formulas". [ There is no such thing as a simple formula for a complex thing like transformational, or systemic change.There cannot be a formula to this!
But on the other hand, "formulas" or "thought concepts" can help us to understand the main challenges to transformation, and to grasp the main success factors, or hurdles that

matter.
One of the earliest members of the BetaCodex movement (then: the Beyond Budgeting movement) was Steve Morlidge, then project manager at Unilever Group (he is now an independent management consultant). Steve Morlidge suggested a "formula for transformational change" that would sum up several elemental forces that drive, or stop change. His formula looks like this:
D x V x S > R
or: The product of "D", mutliplied by "V", multiplied by "S" must be bigger than "R".
This does, of course, look rather simple at first sight, but the underlying concepts are quite tricky. Because:
"D" stands for dissatisfaction
"V" stands for Vision
"S" stands for Strategy and first Steps
and "R" stands for Resistance ]
