In this paper, we explore how each change now overlays other preceding or concurrent changes to form a dynamic pattern of mutual interference. More traditional conceptions of change management can be left behind by this constant overlay of impacts so how are organisations and the people in them, able to adapt and thrive? Instead we need to apply the kind of processing skills that are sensitive to weak signals of change and invite others to help create pictures of change and its impact.
