Join Us in Welcoming Janice Schonwetter on Thursday, June 25, 2015!

5:30 - 6pm: Networking and Refreshments

6 to 8:00pm: Programming


We all know how challenging it is to adapt to the complexity of unpredictable business environments.  As we endeavor to design organizations that are agile, we often find recurring challenges that senior leaders ask OD professionals to help overcome.  If you would like to be introduced to practical techniques that enhance alignment of your organization design efforts with your corporate strategy, join us for a dynamic presentation on the future of organization design. You will leave this session with an understanding of the importance of ensuring that all leaders are "Alignment Leaders" and how to change the "design logic" of organizations so they are better able to deal with future complexity and change.
