The liminal state is a transitional state of being. The root Latin word- limens– means “threshold”. The liminal state is a no-mans land of transition, confusion, stress and vagueness. It is lacking in definition. No longer where you were, and not yet where you are presumably going, liminality has the potential to drive you and your organization crazy.

Bringing change into your organization creates a liminal, “in-between”, transitional state. Prime/OS is designed to address this reality by creating “guardrails” that give all the participants a sense of where they are at all times during the often confusing process of organizational change.
