|September WE:binar Adaptive Change for The Future of Work
Society is in upheaval. We are in the beginnings of fundamental shifts in the ways we work, live, and play. From COVID-19 to racial justice and Black Lives Matter, we are in a time of deep social transformation. Nothing will go back to how it was, but we also don’t know where we are all going to end up. We are in an in-between state, a neutral zone between old and new, where anxiety and uncertainty are the name of the game.
This webinar presents an approach to dealing with that uncertainty when doing workplace transformation projects. This WE:binar draws on the Adaptive Change model and Veldhoen + Company’s newly released global data research project, which surveyed 29 workplace transformation projects around the world. It shows how the physical, technological, and cultural aspects of workplace transformation come together to holistically meet the emergent nature of our world now and into the future.
Presenters: Luc Kamperman & Julian Chender
