Join our innovative learning lab next:pedition!

The next:pedition by is an innovative learning program to help you create a fundamental shift in the way we work, lead and design organizations in the future. This hands-on learning lab is designed to steer your organization from now:land to next:land. The 2nd edition of the learning lab is starting in April 2019!

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”.

How will you learn all this?

By doing! During the course of this program, you will get many chances to prototype, fail, reflect, learn and succeed:

You will experience yourself in two teams: one to self-organize your own learning journey and a second one to explore a specific aspect of next:organizing in depth
You will work on real organization cases and experiment within your own context
You will experiment with our toolbox: a handpicked selection of approaches and methods based on Agile Working Practices, Scrum, Holacracy, Sociocracy, Design Thinking and Lean-Start-Up.
You will apply powerful systemic theory and practices.

And: you will be supported by 3 guides and additional 4 coaches to maximize your learning experience!
