Perspectives on fluent and firm.

FLUENT: CHANGE AND DEVELOPMENT
Nurtured by challenges and curiosity – development, transformation and change can be seen as absolutes in human behavior. The same can be said about firmness.

FIRM: THE EXISTING
Firm is another word for traditional, the existing and being. Influenced by our need for stability, safety and security – humans hold on to the well-known, traditions, rules and law. If everything was fluent we would have to invent everything over and over.

You can say that in order to be fluent there has to be a base of firmness.

FIRM FROM A CORPORATE POINT OF VIEW
From a corporate point of view you can say that firm represents all the frames that seldom changes: E.g. the buildings, the offices, rules for employees, rules for trading national and international, rules for obtaining quality labels for your products and basic administration procedures.

DEFINE WHAT IS FLUENT AND WHAT IS FIRM
To prepare and support employees and managers mindset towards fluent processes – it may be useful to state what is firm (and for how long) and what is fluent. In other words – where should no or very little change be anticipated and where shall change be expected – that is, where are the employees and managers expected to take part in development processes.

REDUCE INSECURITY
Definition of the larger firm parts reduces anxiety and insecurity among the employees in order for them to focus their energy on the smaller fluent work areas.

DEFINE TO BE ABLE TO FOCUS
The fluent work areas will usually be the same as the potential market areas. If a company centers most of its energy here it will be able to expand its market share and proceeds. Maybe the biggest challenge will be to balance the effort and focus between the firm and the fluent areas? The theoretic picture is: Giving less attention to the firm area will leave more of the company in sort of chaos and thereby disturb the focus on development and change in the fluent area. The opposite just leaves the company in the traditional area loosing market shares and proceeds.
