ODF’s Community Engagement & Learning Team is pleased to launch a new series we’re calling “Design Dilemmas.” Each Design Dilemma session will feature a community member sharing an organization design challenge they have and getting perspectives from others in the call. The conversations will be facilitated by a organization design expert.
Sessions are designed to be interactive and focused on learning, whether you are new to the work or wrote the book on it!
