What is the AEM-Cube?

The AEM-Cube is a strategic tool that can be used to encourage dialogue about how people strategically contribute to growth, change and complexity in teams and organisations.

It explores three major dimensions of change and growth: Attachment, Exploration and Managing Complexity. Based on these three dimensions, the natural and unique contribution of an individual in the process of growth and change is described.

By combining these contributions in a team record, the forces are bundled and the team gains insight into the strategic diversity. For example, the AEM-Cube provides insight into one’s own qualities and how to deal with the qualities of others in pursuit of the individual, team or organisational goals.
