Theory U is too complex to describe in a couple of paragraphs, but I will summarise as best I can. It is a theory of creating change that learns from the future as it emerges. Through a process of participatory learning, related closely to action-research, those going through the U-movement vision, crystallise and prototype new ways of working and looking at problems, until they find new ways of operating that become the new norm. Involved in this is the process of presencing, letting go of old frames and old habits and resisting the temptation to 'download' lessons from the past. It is about overcoming the voices of judgement, cynicism and fear and having an open mind, heart and will to let in new ways of being. Learn more at Otto Scharmer's website. The graphic here is particularly useful in thinking about how to put Theory U into practice.
