We find ourselves in unchartered territory – the world is changing. How should humans deal with change? What does it mean for the world of organisations and what does the future look like?
It’s now more important than ever before for OD professionals to take a central role in their organisations and make an impact in designing relevant business structures and development programmes.
As organisations grow and adapt to new technologies, there’s a trend towards increased complexity – networks and ecosystems are replacing the traditional hierarchies of organisations, and there is an increased focus on the use of cross functional and cross-generational teams to enhance innovation. The list of interventions to bring creativity into OD programmes and ensure their success is endless!
With so much to learn from, you can’t afford to miss the 2019 Organisation Development Conference taking place on 26, 27 and 28 February at the Radisson Blu Gautrain hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg.
There’s no doubt you’ll leave the conference equipped with the knowledge, tools and techniques to create a successful organisation. One that is designed for speed, agility, and adaptability to enable you to compete and win in today’s global business environment.
