Metamorphosis is evolution on fast forward. The ability for a metamorphosis to occur requires all the evolutionary pieces to be in place, but once they are, metamorphosis occurs very quickly. If you are not paying close attention, all of a sudden you are still in your original form and everyone else has morphed. Is your present level of personnel evolution ready to allow for metamorphosis?
Metamorphosis is defined as a change of form, shape, structure, or substance, or a complete transformation. That sure sounds like the word that best describes what is happening to our large building automation industry. The larva of our industry is positioned to morph into a new and greatly changed form, shape, structure, and even the substance of what our industry is.
