Learn the basics of an organizational prototpye

What is an organizational prototype

To learn about organizational prototyping we have to peal it apart into smaller pieces. Starting at the definition of a ‘normal’ prototype. And after that the prototype in the context of organizational change. 

What wikipedia says about a prototype

A prototype is an early sample, model, or release of a product built to test a concept or process or to act as a thing to be replicated or learned from. It is a term used in a variety of contexts, including semantics, design, electronics, and software programming. A prototype is generally used to evaluate a new design to enhance precision by system analysts and users. Prototyping serves to provide specifications for a real, working system rather than a theoretical one. In some design workflow models, creating a prototype (a process sometimes called materialization) is the step between the formalization and the evaluation of an idea.

In the context of organizational change

Normally a prototype is an early sample of a product. In the context of organizational change it is an early sample of an improvement within the organization. An idea, a hunch, or just an improvement. Without fully document and plan this change, first prototype it.
