The “as-is” in business is the present situation without making any changes and adjustments. To-be is the future state. As Is mapping reveals how the business is operating today. To-be indicates how the business will operate in the future.
If we take this at the personal not the business level, as-is and to-be mechanism teaches us a lot about the importance of mapping our current activities, routines, plans and goals to know what can be improved. As-Is helps us to capture an accurate visual picture of our current situation. To-Be enables us to see the changes that are necessary in the future.
Building and fortifying the bridge between the present and the future, as-is and to-be requires a couple not necessarily a couple of things: determination and consistency.
