Change Management and Organization Design 2017

Tuesday May 2 - Wednesday May 3 2017 InterContinental Toronto Centre Toronto, ON

Conference Overview

Adaptability, agility and sustainability have never been more important for you and your organization.

Now in it’s 14th year, this event has consistently delivered the latest thinking and emerging approaches to organizational change. Each year the pace of change increases and new complexities emerge and you have to respond.

2017 is no different—as organizations undergo significant digital transformation, expand in the global marketplace and continue to seek greater efficiencies, now is the time to up your change game. With digitization comes new competitors, market disruption and greater uncertainty. But it also creates opportunity—opportunity for change leaders to step up and demonstrate their strategic value to the organization.

The information, experience and connections you get at this event will help you meet the change challenges ahead.

You’ll learn from Canada’s top change and Organization Design leaders—and get practical insight into real successful change and transformation initiatives.

Last year we focussed on change that was Digital, Disruptive and Dispersed. The trends we identified continue but this year we will focus more on the solution—designing and building organizations that are agile, adaptive and sustainable.

That means calling on the expertise of organization design experts, IT experts, project managers, communications professionals and others to ensure you get change right. It means taking a holistic approach and focussing on culture, process and structure as you approach change. It means questioning old assumptions while looking for new ways to structure, align and engage the workplace and the workforce, and inspire them to change.

But remember, transformation may be digital but people remain analogue.

Meet and learn from leaders from a wide range of sectors, and benefit from their change management and organization design and transformation experiences, as they discuss issues such as:

  • Diagnosing your organization
  • Building organization design capability and deploying the right tools
  • How flat is too flat—Holacracy—can it really work?
  • Aligning your organization
  • Designing the digital organization
  • Designing for innovation
  • Breaking down silos and improving communication
  • Using data driven insights to determine design
  • Design thinking
  • The individual psychology of change
  • Change, stress and mindfulness
  • Change and employee communication
  • Leadership and change culture
  • Agile change
  • Change and employee engagement
