"Responsive Organization (http://www.responsive.org/)" is a global movement aimed at (re)thinking our organizations in the era of digital and social technologies. In the movement, people from all over the world share their experiences and ideas on how concretely change the way we work towards more agility, transparence and open ness; in other words: how to be more responsive!
What this Meetup Group is about
We explore the emerging ideas and practices of responsive, adaptable, evolving organizations. Small companies can get away with creative chaos, but chaos alone doesn't scale. Once companies grow, there seems to be very little choice between organizational 'operating systems'. The dominant org OS has been upgraded, fixed, and hacked, but in most organizations, work gets done despite it, not because of it. More and more organizations are replacing the traditional management hierarchy with more fluid and responsive ways of organizing. Valve, Zappos, Buurtzorg, Medium, Spotify, Morning Star, and Springest are just some of the examples of organizations that are 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.

KPN Technium underwent a transformation from waterfall towards agile 5 years ago. About two years ago they started their transformation to the next step. Holacracy. KPN Technium created a two year long experiment regarding Holacracy. During their journey they created their own flavor, based on the experiments and learnings along the way. And inspired by the ingredients by Daniel Pink: Purpose, Mastery & Autonomy. Desmond Dekker had a leading role in this program and is going to share his experience.
