Axelrod Conference Model

Join us for this exciting Conference Model® simulation where you will experience firsthand how to involve an organization’s stakeholders in the design of their organization.  We know that people support what they have a hand in creating, while a future designed by a few creates unnecessary resistance. The Axelrod Conference Model® is a large-scale approach to organization design involving internal and external stakeholders in a series of integrated conferences and walk thrus. Conferences create an open exchange of information, increased understanding of the system under consideration, new agreements and actions, and enhanced relationships among participants. In these workshop-type sessions, participants at all levels create an organization that is productive and worthy of pride.

During this workshop you will learn:

  • The four secrets behind the Conference Model ® process
  • All the steps in the process from beginning to end
  • The pitfalls and keys to success
