Consequences for too much reacting





Adaptation is a mindful response to unforeseeable events and change and to unknowns and uncertainties that unfolds.

When adaptation is not so mindful because someone rely too much on adaptation (reacting too much, being too impulsive, continuous firefighting) :
  • failure to take advantage of knowable information increases costs

  • unnecessary adaptation cause excessive reworks

  • no extra flexibility is achieved

  • it can lead to endless mindless change that doesn’t produce real value
