Transformation approach

How can your organizational transformation journey look like?
Learn about PAUL-X's evolutionary transformation approach.

Organizational evolution

PAUL-X offers a personal and collective learning journey suitable for your context. 

Acknowledging and honoring that every context is different and your situation is unique, we start with a thorough understanding of your needs, rather than with a specific method. We are client-focused first, although we bring a deep and diverse methodical toolbox.

Our transformation approach is grounded in action research. That means we are iteratively designing experiments to test assumptions and generate experiences which help to identify what works for you.

Throughout our various projects we have found five general steps that every transformation follows. These are presented in the following.

TEAL transformation
