We all know that the majority of organisations, as they are run today, are problematic. However we measure, less than 1 in 5 are truly engaged at work, whether manager or employee. Most organizations still rely on a way of working designed over 100 years ago for the challenges and opportunities of the industrial age, with static team structures and siloed, command and control systems.
That's why in this group we explore new ways to work and organize.
Responsive Org aims to develop a shared language and independent global community that promotes and enables a fundamental shift in our way of working and organizing. Get more information about the Responsive Org movement here (http://www.responsive.org/).
With approaches that foster new organizing models, e.g. self-organizing systems like Holacracy and so-called Evolutionary Teal organisation practices we may be witnessing a "light at the end of the tunnel".
In this meet-up we exchange pioneering experiences, learn about new methods and systems, and we invite organizations to share their new "responsive practices" with our community.
Experimenting as an Organizational Mindset with Daniel Bartl, Head of Organizational Development, Helvetia Insurance
In order to successfully move forward in a complex environment, organizations need to increase their speed of learning new things. Experimentation plays a key role in these learning processes. In summer 2017, Helvetia Insurance (www.helvetia.ch) launched a culture initiative within which developing an experimental mindset is a core topic.
In this Meetup, we will address a number of key questions related to experimentation. What do we mean by experimenting? Why is it important and how does it make a difference? How can an experimental mindset be institutionalized in a big corporate context? How can experimental processes be handled from a leadership perspective?
Daniel Bartl joined Helvetia in July 2017 and today leads the Organizational Development unit. His team contributes to building the organizational preconditions for anchoring the Helvetia strategy.
Before joining Helvetia, Daniel worked as a management consultant for Accenture and for Booz Allen (today PWC) from 1999 to 2009. From 2010 to 2017, he was managing director of the 'RISE Management Innovation Lab', a competence center for entrepreneurial management. He is a lecturer of management, engaged in researching and teaching in the fields of strategic management and leadership development.
Daniel holds a doctorate in business administration from the University of St. Gallen (HSG), an Executive master's degree in communication sciences from the University of Lugano (USI), and acted as an Assistant Professor for Organization Studies at the University of St. Gallen.
Doors open at 18:00 – Meetup starts at 18:15.
