WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN
A COMMUNITY CONVERSATION
A COMMUNITY CONVERSATION
Using Zoom, a virtual platform, ODF will facilitate 60-minute Community Conversations around the themes that came from posing questions at the 2016 conference:
Each of these conversations will be led by a different community member who will design the session offering the opportunity for any community member to participate. Our hope is that the talks will be so engaging it will lead to a continuing dialogue beyond what we help arrange.
Join community member, Anna McGrath and her co-facilitator, Julianna Christie, as they lead a conversation on the topic of personal mastery . . .
Join community member, Mary Winby, in a conversation about how, as the environment becomes more complex, the concept and process for org design and consulting is changing. Explore ways consultants can be more adaptive to address client real-time needs.
Join ODF Board member, Bill Zybach, as he leads a discussion addressing the pace of change. . . The world is accelerating at a rapid pace, and our clients expect us to move beyond old linear approaches to design. What have you done to keep up with both the expectations and the pace of change?
Join community member, Dan Ritter and his co-facilitator, Peter Ross, in an engaging dialogue on the considerations beyond establishment of an initial organization design to achieve and sustain desired results. Organization design work is not complete once an effective and efficient design has been established. Explore ways to be thoughtful about transitions, establish and track measures of success, and monitor future design needs.
Join us as Dr. Marty Trevino, Technical Director of Mission Analytics for the U.S. Dept. of Defense, discusses how the fusion of business intelligence, decision science, and organization design & development is changing everything, and what an OD practitioner path to relevance in the new world may be.
In this Community Conversation Janet du Preez, engagement researcher and protagonist, will facilitate an exploration of a complex topic which seems to pepper most org design conversations.
Join community member, Denise Easton, as she leads a conversation on making Complexity work in organizations . . .
Join community member, Anne Murray Allen, as she leads a conversation – Working on Complex Collaborations – what holds people together when time and circumstances conspire to pull them apart?
Join community member, Keith Warren, in a conversation about how Digital Transformation is driving enormous organization and culture change. An understanding of digital transformation will be essential knowledge for any organization design practitioner.
Join us as community member, Jill Windelspecht, leads a discussion on organization assessments. There are multiple approaches and models that are used. We are looking forward to hearing from you on your ‘favorite’ model(s), why and how you use it so we can all grow!
Author Peter Block will explore the challenges of consulting for changing organizations and the complexity of consulting in a world where change efforts can become cosmetic and never fulfill their potential. Based on his book, Flawless Consulting, he will discuss how to have influence and act as a partner. Partnership is the point, contracting is the skill, and recognizing the difference and leveraging each at the right time – that’s the art.
This Community Conversation will bridge the gap between our virtual sessions and our annual conference. Whether you attended the conference or not there will be something here for you.
Join us to discuss the themes of Agility and Innovation, which the conference centered around. We’ll share lessons learned during the diverse plenary presentations and peer workshops, and just as importantly . . . the cherry on top. . . all of the very engaging integration discussions sprinkled throughout.
