We invite you to join a
Peer-to-Peer Consulting session
. . .
Executive Sponsorship’s Role in Transformation
. . .
ODF board member, Kiersten Rippeteau, will facilitate this 75-minute session offering the opportunity for ODF community member, Joe Kopetsky, to present a challenge and receive input from fellow designers encouraging knowledge exchanges that support the theory and practice of organization design. . .
The need for active and visible executive sponsorship for our transformation projects is an obvious need and an undebatable success factor. How do we navigate this relationship successfully and completely with the factors that inevitably compete with sponsors’ time, energy, and resources? Join us in helping a colleague think through some fundamental questions and assumptions about executive sponsorship and its “true role” in transformation.
