About the course
Build a culture that enables brave ideas, create employee experience that helps people flourish, design your organisation to support innovation.
It's not enough to have all the right processes and use the latest frameworks. If your culture doesn't allow innovation to happen, you won't get anywhere. Spend a week immersed into the best-practices and unconventional approaches to culture, leadership, organisational design and future of work. Every day will consist of keynote presentations, case studies, roundtable discussions and visits to the top companies who are creating the best working environments for people. Some people call our format a 'design safari', some say it's a VIP behind-the-scenes experience or a research trip.
All lectures and workshops take place in the actual companies giving participants a better context of the topic. This programme is designed to give you inspiration and tools for your work, to help you see your challenges from a different angle and keep you up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry.
