21 June, 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: Designing Differentiating, Growth-oriented Business Models

Every organization seems to be looking for the perfect business model that will allow it outpace competitors and deliver sustainable value to customers and shareholders.  While talk about business models has reached nearly every boardroom in the world, the reality is that few organization understand the design principles that drive marketplace distinctiveness and the design of a winning, growth-oriented business model.  This session will highlight principles, tools and examples of organizations that have designed business models not just for efficiency, but for distinctiveness and growth.  

Session Two:  A Case Study in Building New Strategic Capabilities

Products, services, even business models can be copied and reproduced, but a company that truly understands customers and creates experiences that matter to those customers has a competitive advantage that is exceptionally difficult to copy.  Of course, transforming customer experience is no easy task.  It requires a whole set of interconnected systems, processes, skills and technologies.  Hear the story of how one organization is working to build an organizational capability that transforms customer experience.

Session Three:  Transforming Culture to Drive Innovation

Increasing the pace of growth through innovation is near the top of every global organization’s list of priorities. Organization design creates the context for innovative activity and the means for delivering the results of that activity to customers and users. However, the desired tightly aligned relationship between organization design and innovation strategy can break down, particularly if the prevailing culture does not enable the needed innovation.  This session will address the key steps to aligning culture and organization design choices to deliver on innovation.
