WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN
A CONVERSATION on
GLOBAL ORGANIZATION DESIGN TRENDS

UPCOMING CONVERSATIONS . . .

Wednesday, July 30th @ 12:30 PM (ET)

We will be skipping June to hold our 2020 Conference Virtual Series

Using Zoom, a virtual platform, we host 60-minute conversations on the themes we see emerging from the articles in each newsletter and then take a deeper dive into the one receiving the most interest . . .

As a joint project between ODF & European ODF we invite you to be part of our monthly online conversations on hot topics/trends in Organization Design. The Curatorial Board, composed of five OD experts, academics, and practitioners, selects the most interesting new articles, blog ­posts, books, and case studies to share with our fellow organization design professionals each month in a newsletter distributed by EODF.
