Organisations define and redefine themselves in response to new demands and opportunities that emerge from changing conditions. The popular use of outsourcing, for instance, is a familiar strategy often driven by twin demands to cut costs and improve delivery. Public and private enterprise now faces more complex systemic demands, which challenge us to organise and cooperate across traditional boundaries.
New research demonstrates how collaborative inquiry can be a source of innovative thinking that improves both understanding and action. At the same time, a collaborative approach has some significant implications in relation to our understanding of what good leadership and change agency looks like.
The session will be led by Mike Jones. Mike is Director of Learning and Leadership at Open Minds – a consultancy and think tank specialising in organisation, community and economic development. Mike has extensive cross-sector experience in leadership, cultural change and organisational transformation. He recently led a research project on collaboration, working with an advisory group of senior leaders from both the public and private sector. Over the past ten years Mike has pioneered the practical application of complexity science in organisations - particularly in the context of strategy, leadership and sustainability.
The main session begins at 6.30pm and will end around 8.15 pm. It will then be followed by a buffet reception where you will have the opportunity to meet the speakers, as well as share experiences and network with fellow delegates.
