 Keynote Presentation

Wiki Management: The Future of Management Has Already Arrived!

Conventional management thought assumes that command-and-control is the most effective way to organize the efforts of large numbers of people, but rapid change and increasing complexity have rendered that model obsolete. Designing organizations to succeed in a time of great change demands a new and very different model. Discover a revolutionary new business world where leaders are catalysts and facilitators rather than bosses and workers are highly engaged in shaping strategic thinking and operational practices. Learn how a new breed of innovative business leaders have completely overhauled the ways we build organizations and why, despite being hidden in plain sight, the future of management has already arrived!

 Educational Presentation

The Elegant Set: Capturing the Collective Intelligence in the Room

The Elegant Set is a facilitated exercise that is especially useful when an organization is under pressure to deliver a solution or to implement a strategy, and it is caught in a cycle of endless debate driven by deep irreconcilable differences among a large group of key stakeholders. This methodology is a way to move a group forward by tapping into the collective intelligence of the group to quickly identify workable common ground.
