WHY SHOULD YOU BE THERE?
Seize the rare opportunity to know and learn from Paul Tolchinsky, one of the founders of the European Organisation Design Forum, with over 35 years of expertise in organisation design and applying socio-technical and Whole-Scale™ Change principles to organizations.

Organisations need to have the flexibility to adapt and the innovation to drive growth. We need tools to help speed the design or redesign process in organisations and to transform cultures quickly so that the system not only embraces change, but thrives on it.

There is a growing interest in organisations that are able to cope with increasing amounts of unrelenting change, while keeping a clear strategic direction. Achieving this is not a matter of bringing some more “agility” to the existing organisation at any scale. In fact, it is about understanding and implementing a completely new concept of the organisation itself.

If this resonates with you, then yes! You should definitely be there.

Also, consider we are providing discounted tickets for companies. See here all the details.

WHAT YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM. OR DO THEM ALL!
The Org Design Week offers basic and advanced training events as well as a time to get to know Paul better and discuss with him about the topic, here the three events you can join:

ORGANISATIONAL DESIGN PRACTICUM — Basic Level
Whether you are experienced or new to the discussion, this workshop gives you the theoretical underpinnings to engage a system, as well as the practical techniques. We’ll explore the most important topics of Org Design, including the elements of a process of design that would be key to success, why and how to build consensus while building across networks and eco-systems. An experience based on applying how to make visible the process and the choices from simple to complex adaptive systems.

ADAPTIVE ORGANISATION DESIGN MASTERCLASS — Advanced Level
In this advanced Masterclass we’ll explore what an Adaptive Organisation really is, why and when it is a good thing to pursue it and what are the principles behind it. We’ll do it diving into the nitty-gritty of how on Earth it is possible to realize such an organisation, both from the human system perspective and from the organisation designer intervention perspective.
It will be facilitated by Paul Tolchinsky and Stelio Verzera.

APERITIVO WITH PAUL
An occasion to meet and ask Paul Tolchinsky your questions regarding his experience and Organisation Design. We’ll meet in a nice place in the center of Milan, for a century the world capital of aperitifs.
