Event Description

New Thinking for Troubled Times

Co-creating the future the AMED Way

The world is in uproar: the predominant economic model is failing, some of the more astonishing predictions of the impact of the internet are being manifest, there is extraordinary volatility across the Middle East and the more familiar pressures of globalisation and population growth continue.  Meanwhile, traditional thinking about management and adversarial politics continues to dominate the mainstream. 

Organisations, through the people who work in them, turn to us developers to help them deal with challenges from the economic environment, increasing commercial pressures and market turmoil.  That puts pressure on all of us to help them find answers. Answers they want NOW!

Let’s not struggle on alone but work together, ‘the AMED Way’. This series of three special seminars seeks to integrate our efforts to add up to something more powerful.  We’ll distil and  publish our findings in a ‘special report’, free to all attendees.  

This is great  opportunity for you to participate in the development of important new ideas; to help co-create the future of OD. BOOK NOW to reserve your place.

Seminar 1: Vital Models & Essential Concepts in OD

Just £10 (for AMED & IES Members), £20 for Guests / Networkers. Please click here to make a payment for Seminar 1, 2 or 3.

We're delighted to announce contributions from Valerie Garrow and Sharon Varney, Guest Editors of the Winter 2011 edition of e-O&P on 'Developing organisations: evolution and revolution'.

Using a format borrowed from Open Space, let’s get our heads together. We’ll aim to identify models, ideas, methods and concepts that are vital and stand up to the rigours of our current working climate.

  • What do you think are ‘essential’ in our work right now?
  • Which are you using, and why?
  • What ideas have passed their sell-by date?
  • What new ideas are emerging, and will they last?
  • Is there anything missing from our toolkit?

This will not be a series of presentations, but rather a lightly structured free-flowing seminar. It’s your opportunity to learn, to explore, to engage in dialogue, to challenge and to create.  We want to learn and share with each other.

Even if you can’t quite make it for the start, you’ll be welcome whenever you arrive.  But do book now to be sure of your place in shaping the future of our profession.

Advance notice:

The second and third seminars in this short but important series are planned 9th March and 17th May 2012. Book early to get these in your diary and reserve your place at the leading edge of our profession.
