#007 Natural cycles of Improvement

We looked at natural cycles like the daily, monthly and yearly cycle and how those different phases and energies can help us in structuring our improvement processes. We looked a little at the 8 shields framework, Permaculture and Dragon Dreaming as an inspiration. Then we compared it to the current corporate process improvement frameworks, both their similarities, and how they differ from each other.
