Change Dynamics are types of change that arise within a certain period of time. The absolute measure of change is subjectively perceived differently, but this is not crucial for the levels of change dynamics. The four ideal dynamic ranges go from determination of the initial state, over preservation of the current condition and continuous improvement up to radical change.
On the first level (named Realization) the current condition becomes aware and creates the baseline for stabilization or change. On the second level (named Balance) the current condition becomes conserved by inhibiting change with specific control. Beginning with the third level (named Improvement or First-order change) small changes take place that can produce, in form of continuous changes, large differences across a long period of time. On the last level of change dynamics, (named Alteration or the Second-order change), radical transformations take place that eliminate actions that are no more done or replaced by new approaches or even newly invented.
Approaches to the change dynamics can be found in Change management (e.g. Kaizen, Business process reengineering) or in Systems Engineering (e.g. Network thinking, Complexity management).
