15th Annual Change and Transformation Conference

Build Resilient, Relevant Organizations in a Disrupted, Digital World
JUNE 22 - 23, 2017 | NEW YORK MARRIOTT DOWNTOWN | NEW YORK, NY

June 22 - 23, 2017

Challenges You May be Facing

Chances are, your organization has experienced disruption that has changed the way you think, behave, and operate. If disruption hasn’t impacted your business yet, it will soon.  As change and transformation professionals, what can we learn from others who are fully immersed in this journey? 

According to Jon Wolske, Chief Cultural Evangelist at Zappos Insights, “Culture and brand are two sides of the same coin,” which means it is increasingly important to put professionals who are dedicated to change and organization effectiveness in more visible, high-profile roles to help manage disruption. But, how do we begin to do that?

About The Conference

Leveraging human and emotional capital is important for addressing the disruptive digital economy. A strategic response also relies on what companies actually do with the technology, such as building closer relationships with customers, employees, and external talent. At the 15th Annual Change and Transformation Conference we will examine what is needed to build resilient, relevant organizations in a disrupted, digital world. 

Topics we will explore include:

  • The ripple effect that digital transformation has on business and human capital.
  • The definition of what a digital leader looks like from the top down.
  • Transforming the way we train and develop talent to become inclusive, co-creators of the future.
  • The impact of data transparency and how it’s changing the conversation across boundaries, work groups, and professions.
  • Navigating the journey with advice from change and business professionals who will challenge our assumptions and share the lessons they’ve learned.

AGENDA
JUNE 22 - 23, 2017
NEW YORK MARRIOTT DOWNTOWN

June 21, 2017

PLEASE NOTE VENUE CHANGE: This Lab will now be held at the New York Marriott Downtown

2017 Organization Design LAB
Transforming Business Models, Capabilities and Cultures
June 21, 2017

This highly interactive one- day seminar will feature practitioners from leading companies sharing their learnings on how to tackle the most complex and challenging organization transformation efforts.  From implementing new business models, to building new ways of working, success is predicated on leadership alignment, clarity of intent, and thoughtful and disciplined management of the process end-to-end.  Business executives and OD/HR practitioners will engage together to navigate three detailed case studies.  Presentations will feature tools and techniques, new approaches, and essential building blocks for orchestrating complex organizational reinvention.

Session One: Keys to Successful Organization Transformation: Getting from the Organization Design to Realization

Nearly every organization is contemplating, engaged in, or hoping to successfully conclude some type of organization transformation. Despite all of the tools, best practices, and sage advice, many transformation efforts fail to realize the desired results. While no formula will guarantee success every time, there are some keys to improving the odds of designing a distinctive organization, engaging the members of your organization, and achieving desired results. This workshop will highlight several organization design concepts and tools that business and HR leaders alike can use to design optimal organizations, highlight the keys to successful transformation and share case studies of organizations who have achieved great results.

Session Two:  The Real World of Globalization: What It Takes to Design a Truly Global Organization

Our world is increasingly interconnected and interdependent. While having an international footprint was once the purview of only the largest organizations, today’s technology enables companies of all sizes to “go global”. But true globalization means more than doing business in multiple markets. It has implications for functions, structure, processes, tools and people. Learn about the journey General Mills is taking as they move to truly globalize, and learn what implications their experience has for your organization.

Session Three:  Building (and Sustaining) a Culture of Innovation

Companies large and small need to adapt to changing customer needs and new ways of working. The best ones don’t innovate. Rather they create a culture of innovation: a climate where new ideas and risk-taking are encouraged. The climate is shaped both by formal ways of working (like collaborations and incubations) and by fostering curiosity and deep engagement. It starts before an employee joins the firm and is continually refined. 

Who Should Attend

This conference is designed exclusively for executives responsible for large-scale transformation efforts or wanting to make their organization more effective. Expected titles include: 

Chief Executives, Heads, VPs and Directors of:

  • HR Business Partners
  • Organization Design
  • OD/OE
  • Change and Transformation
  • Business Capability
  • Business Performance
  • Strategy
