Get your ducks connected – The CLC Roundtable on Organisational Design

What to expect

Large, hierarchical organisations were not built for the current context. There are new social expectations and values at play, new attitudes towards jobs and lifestyle, new capabilities and a new balance of economies of scale versus economies of small.

In fact, everything that makes a giant corporate system function smoothly is what might prevent it from dealing with the new reality facing the work environment.

Our next Creative Leadership Collective Roundtable on Thursday 26 July will unpack our experiences, challenges and successes in organisational/team structures that enable continuous innovation. And we’ll ask how we might start thinking in terms of this new, dynamic reality and how there may be new ways of organising people and managing the challenges and creative potential that arise from this.

This session will start at 1 pm at the world-leading Future Nation Schools (FNS), who are kindly hosting us and will be taking us on a tour of their innovative and inspiring FNS Fleurhof Campus.

This roundtable meeting will also include a masterclass, designed and delivered by New York-based advisor, innovator and author, Amy Radin.

Amy has been at the forefront of rewiring brands for the future with an insightful, down-to-earth approach that gets beyond the status quo. She will give us a hands-on experience applying the ‘User/Buyer/Payer/Influencer’ Model, a tool that’s been designed to help you assess what your clients need and value – in relation to a product, service or experience you are developing or re-imagining.

Her first book, The Change Maker’s Playbook: How to Seek, Seed and Scale Innovation In Any Company will be published in September and you will each get a signed copy once it’s published.

Get prepped

Amy’s online masterclass will be delivered via Zoom on site at the Fleurhof campus, with Paul co-facilitating (similar to Dr Danie Maritz and Dr Marc Sniukas’ Innovation Metrics online masterclass held at Media24).

To ensure you extract the greatest value from this masterclass, Amy has asked that you start thinking about ‘the right kind of problem’ you’d like to work on during her session. This should relate to a solution (product, service or experience) that you’re developing or re-imagining for your customer.

CLC members are encouraged to bring up to 6 relevant colleagues along to our events. Given the nature of this roundtable, you might consider senior colleagues from design, organisational design/development (OD) and/or human capital.

See you there! A more detailed agenda will be shared with members closer to the event. In the meantime, feel free to give Paul a shout as needs be.Thank you in advance for your contributions and ongoing support. We look forward to seeing you and your invited colleagues there.
