Module 3 ā€“ Transformation. In this module you will learn about your personal role in transformation: how does the self relate to the system, and what role do our intentions have? You will learn about the differences between change and transformation, between complicated and complex problems, between a global and local outlook and between designing in the open and behind closed doors.
