Track: Trends & Innovation
Is top-down management hierarchy the only way to organize a company? Most of us have never experienced anything else, but all around we see pioneers utilizing different organizational “operating systems.” How do we make sense of “self-management,” “holacracy,” “agile,” and “responsive organizations?” Are these different, or perhaps somehow related? In this session, CEO/author/thought leader Josh Allan Dykstra will connect the dots between the latest emerging models of organization design, helping change management practitioners understand how companies are evolving and give them tools to help "future-proof" the organizations, teams, and leaders they work with.
