icm2re logo. icm2:re (I Changed My Mind Reviewing Everything) is an ongoing web column edited and published by Brunella Longo

This column deals with some aspects of change management processes experienced almost in any industry impacted by the digital revolution: how to select, create, gather, manage, interpret, share data and information either because of internal and usually incremental scope - such learning, educational and re-engineering processes - or because of external forces, like mergers and acquisitions, restructuring goals, new regulations or disruptive technologies.

The title - I Changed My Mind Reviewing Everything - is a tribute to authors and scientists from different disciplinary fields that have illuminated my understanding of intentional change and decision making processes during the last thirty years, explaining how we think - or how we think about the way we think. The logo is a bit of a divertissement, from the latin divertere that means turn in separate ways.

Between the two types lies the absolute majority of changes we deal with, sometimes loaded down with lot of confusion and sometimes lighted up with signals of improbable revolutions or miracles.

I have had a summer full of opportunities to make big and little changes that required the application of previous learning in pivotal ways - an approach that I tend to consider british, sparkling creativity. In other circumstances it is advisable a pathway that I consider more italian, based on perseverance and resilience. But I believe that in most cases it is exactly a combination of creativity and analysis that opens up consistent and reliable innovation.

One of the reliable ways to deal with change and to practice the art of learning along the pathway of continuous improvements consists in managing iterations: from correcting spelling mistakes in primary schools to controlling meaningful data collected through sensors networks, as a notable latin phrase says, repetitions are often very useful (repetita iuvant) in many learning and development contexts ...
