What we’re about
Our mission is to create safe spaces where people can explore work/life innovation. We formed in 2017 to host the first open space conference in Portland-themed on the future of work. Our inspiration comes from the intersection of improvement in software, healthcare, banking, construction, nonprofits and the great need for things to get better.
What this Meetup Group is about
We explore the emerging ideas and practices of responsive, adaptable, evolving organizations. More and more organizations are replacing the traditional management hierarchy with more fluid and responsive ways of organizing. Valve, Zappos, Medium, Spotify, Morning Star, are just some of the examples of companies reinventing how work gets organized in service of purpose. This meetup explores what we can learn from these and other organizations' experiments and experiences, and how we can start reinventing and transforming our own organizations to be more responsive and purpose-driven.
Who should join
People who are passionate about reinventing organizations, agile, responsiveness, holacracy, etc., and who are ready to jump in and start experimenting in the teams and organizations they show up in. Bring an open mind, share what/who inspires you, what you're reading, what you've tried, and what burning questions you want to explore. There are so many progressive, innovative professionals in Portland, let's collaborate!
