The European Organization Design Forum conference being held in Milan, Italy October 2-3, 2015 is bringing together change agents who’ll be tackling one of the deepest questions companies face.

Designing the future of work is not a casual endeavor and it takes the collaboration of everyone to transform companies from past practices to a different world of work. Paul Tolchinsky, founder of the EODF, along with two members of the seven-member organizing team from Cocoon Projects, Stelio Verzera and Claudia Pellicori, talk to Dawna about why companies are interested in exploring better ways of organizing work. Listen to this podcast to learn:

  • Why the design of organizations creates the future of work
  • How an Open Space approach amplifies the insights, strength and support for the change community
  • How collaboration is replacing fear and a competitive mindset to power adaptability

The Evolutionary Provocateur bi-monthly show is for executives, managers, and supervisors (OR for leaders at all levels) who have noticed that it is not what you know but who you are that has the biggest impact.

Dawna Jones, the show's host, believes that by raising awareness and understanding we can make a quantum leap to a new level of innovation in business - but it has to be done collectively.

What better way to do it than by provoking the evolution of how you see yourself and your role!
