Designing Your Organization to Grow Talent with Amy Kates
We have all learned not to design around people, but talent management and organization design are closely connected. The new organization is not complete until the leadership and critical roles are staffed with people who can build the new capabilities required. An organization design project also is an excellent opportunity to build the developmental experiences that have been shown as the best way to grow leaders right into newly reshaped roles.
In this pre-conference seminar, we will look at organization design through the lens of talent. We’ll explore frameworks, tools, and methods for bringing the two fields together in your work.
Amy Kates is managing partner at Kates Kesler Organization Consulting. She is the co-author, with Greg Kesler, of Leading Organization Design (2010) and with Jay Galbraith of Designing Your Organization (2007).
Advancing Our Practice – Exploring the Design of Network Organizations with Stu Winby and Dr. Craig McGee
In order to respond quickly to market changes, organizations that excel at creating “networks” and understand the supporting structures that make them succeed, will have a distinct advantage over those who aren’t good at it. These networks often include people who are part of the larger system, and not just inside the traditional organization boundaries. How do you successfully design networks? What structures and processes are essential to their form? What other sub-systems need to be attended to?
Please join us for a day of brainstorming, idea sharing and practice building with other seasoned organization designers. A case study and design process will be used to discover how elements in the Galbraith Star sub-systems support the success of network designs.
Stu Winby, author of Adapting to New Realities: The Emergence of Network Organizations and Work Systems and Craig McGee, author of Beyond Teams: Building the Collaborative Organization, will be our hosts for this collaborative workshop.
(The pre-con is targeted at mid-to-senior level practitioners. Understanding of organization design principles and models will be foundational.)
