Description:

If you are not moving at the speed of the marketplace you're already dead - you just haven't stopped breathing yet. - Jack Welch

The organization structure in which most of us operate today can be quite an obstacle to respond adequately to a fast changing business environment. In fact, traditional organization structures are not designed to deal with a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world. This leads to employees feeling disengaged from their companies, and to companies being outpaced by their competition.

Consequently, organizations need to redesign their structures to cope with the phenonemon and increase their capability to move faster than competition, incorporate new technology, learn new skills...

Come listen to some great experiences on how organizations can be structured very differently, using (combinations of) Scrum, Holacracy, Sociocracy 3.0, Management 3.0, etc. to successfully adapt to a VUCA world.

For this webinar we invited a couple of experienced persons who guide companies in their organizational (re)design to gain business agility. They have experience practicing Scrum, Holacracy, Sociocracy 3.0 and other models in order to adapt to today's VUCA world.

Together with these experts, we'll browse through the different colors of Frederic Laloux his "Reinventing Organizations" and explore the differences, strengths and possible weaknesses of many different self-managing frameworks to structure organizations.
