Unlocking the Power of Change: How Transition Management Transforms Economic Transitions

Managing transitions is a complex and challenging task, especially when it comes to major structural transformations facing our regional economies. While we cannot entirely control the direction and speed of change, we can influence it through a structured and evidence-based approach. This is where Transition Management comes in.

Transition Management is a process that has been successfully employed for over 25 years across the world to advance transition agendas of government ministries, regions, industrial precincts, organisations, and communities. It provides a framework for transformative change based on shared understanding, shared direction, and shared actions.

The process is simple – we take participants through three stages: 


  1. Capability Building

Lifts transition literacy, creates shared understanding, and creates a community of practice to make things happen.


2. Transition Arenas

Innovation spaces where stakeholders build transition visions, goals and pathways of change, and suggest immediate actions to be taken.


3. Scaling + Accelerating

Delivers proven tools to scale innovation and accelerate desired outcomes, creating coalitions for change.

This is underpinned by a Dashboard: a rigorous Assessment and Evaluation tool that assesses progress against transition metrics to evaluate performance and future directions.


The Transition Management process creates capacities, coalitions, strategies, and innovations that are essential for driving transformative change. It is an evidence-based approach that enables stakeholders to work together towards a shared goal, building trust, and creating a sense of shared ownership.
