During the first two days you will be immersed in the concept of Innovative Labor Organization. What lies behind this trendy umbrella term for 'all initiatives aimed at improving organizational performance by facilitating adequate and sustainable collaboration between people'? You will gain insight into the historical context of this concept as well as contemporary social trends. Both influence the current structure of companies / organizations. We will then move on to discuss the numerous reasons why the current structure needs innovative redesigning.
In the next 2-days session, we will explore ILO in more detail. Building blocks such as vision, structure, leadership, teams, and systems will be given a broader meaning and clearer coherence. Next, a simulation game will introduce you to the craftsmanship of (re)design. Starting from various practical examples, you will discover how to implement a design algorithm. In addition, you will discover the relationship between organizational configurations and workability, as a better organizational design leads to more engagement, less frustration and energy loss, and a better focus on strategic objectives. The theory will be illustrated by real life cases.
