Abstract

In transition times leaders should be aware of the hidden and intangible assets of their organizations or communities. While linear—analytical assessment tools face major difficulties in meeting this challenge, we suggest that the use of archetypal models as knowledge systems can be of help. A new tool, based on the use of geometrical patterns and aiming to reveal and assess a system’s capacity and maturity for change, is presented here.
