Louis Saindon, Lead, Transformation and Design Team, U.S. Census Bureau
Katrina Syvertsen, Sr.Advisor, Project Manager of the Transformation Effort at the U.S. Census Bureau
Learn how the U.S. Bureau pivoted from an in-person organization change effort to a virtual process that involved thousands of employees. Explore with us in this interactive session the choices and dilemmas that occurred during this multi-year process.
During this session we will share with you our experience of taking a Large Group Intervention, The Conference Model® and customizing it to both meet the needs of the Census Bureau and convert it to a virtual experience. Topics include: choice of platforms, whom to include, how to support participants so they can work effectively in a virtual environment, etc. The goal of these discussions is not to provide “right answers” but to engage the community in discussions that broaden everyone’s knowledge about how to do High Engagement Organization Design in a virtual world. You will leave this session with ideas and tools you can use immediately.
