Webinar “The DNA of next:land” | September 6, 2018: 6:00 – 7:30 pm (18:00 – 19:30h)

There is no one-size-fits-all model for 21st century organizations. But we see markers indicating towards the new world of work that can guide you on the journey to next: The five principles of next:land. We consider these principles as foundational for a different way to organize. Find out more about these principles and real-life examples in a 1,5hr webinar with our evolutionary catalysts Gerald Mitterer & Matthias Lang of dwarfs and Giants!

Why do we need this fundamental shift of organizing?

Today’s organizations as we know them are formed by the needs of the industrial revolution. Therefore, hierarchies of people and power respond to questions from the past: This is what we call “now:land”. But digitalization, big data, complexity and speed and their implication on organizations force us to fundamentally think and act differently to succeed in this new environment. The next:pedition is designed to enable organizations to respond to the global forces that radically change the way we work and live: To help you and your organization enter “next:land”.

5 reasons for you to join next:pedition!

1. You will learn how to lead your own organizational transformation towards agility, a culture of innovation and new ways of organizing.
2. You will be equipped with a new mindset as well as capabilities and tools needed to respond to a world of dynamic and complexity.
3. You will build courage and confidence in guiding your organization
4. You will work with a powerful systemic transformation approach integrated with agile and self-management tools.
5. You will learn from, explore and practice with other pioneers from other companies in a hands-on lab environment.


How will you learn all this?

By doing! 🙂 During the course of this program, you will get many chances to prototype, fail, reflect and learn. Also, you will be experimenting with a handpicked selection of approaches and tools such as Agile Working Practices, Scrum, Holacracy, Design Thinking and Lean-Start-Up integrated with systemic thinking and theories.
