Change is difficult to achieve. The Strategy and Tactics (S&T) tree is a powerful tool for addressing the question of "How to cause a change?" in an organization. If you are considering implementing any kind of change, you will discover why the S&T tree is a compelling enabler of change.
When implementing a change in an organization, the basic requirements for success are communication and effectively synchronized actions in the plan. The S&T tree is the asset for achieving your goal because it presents all the logic of the plan and is easy to communicate to others.

This chapter provides an understanding of how to cause the change through descriptions of various applications of S&T trees for organizations to become "ever-flourishing."
