THE 4 MASTERCLASSES – AN OVERVIEW

DAY 1 – OCTOBER 18th

MASTERCLASS 1: PUTTING THE CUSTOMER AT THE CENTER OF A BUSINESS

DESCRIPTION

Putting the customer at the center of a business cannot be successful by re-structuring, injecting a technology solution and/or making functional changes. To do so requires a different operating model that embraces the customer along their lifecycle regardless of touch points or channels.   For delegates, this one-day, hands-on workshop will practically illustrate what it means to be customer-centric in terms of design features, review and critique various operating models embracing customer-centricity, and co-develop real-world operating model solutions.  The masterclass will utilize real designs from industries including energy, retail, FMCG, high technology as well as product and service businesses.  Delegates will have an opportunity to create action plans associated with their own projects.

DAY 2 – OCTOBER 19th

MASTERCLASS 3: ORGANISATION DESIGN’S ROLE IN BUSINESS AGILITY


DESCRIPTION

In a slow world, a successful organization starts growing and starts adding hierarchy and jobs and processes. But when the world starts to speed up, organizations add strategic committees, consultants, PMOs, etc to respond to that change. If it’s done well, it works well, up to a point.

But as world has sped up more, they keep adding more communities and that begins to slow down the system. In this superfast world with various threats coming to you and windows of opportunities closing quickly.

What seems to work is:

• How orgs naturally work, like a dynamic solar system, or a molecule to be able to be agile and quick. Tasks become fluid, with a network interconnected structure.

• It also brings more wealth, better products/ services and makes it an awesome place to work.

• So, the logical question is can you create that dynamic, flexible, at the same time adaptive organization from a hierarchical, traditional organization? How do you make that work and get those results?

Join us to learn how to spark the network organization from the traditional organization and how to keep everyone connected in a solid way, to have a reliable, fast and adaptive organization using business agility and organizational design principals and methods.

MASTERCLASS 4: ADAPTIVE ORGANISATION DESIGN AND LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®


DESCRIPTION

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is built upon a process which stems from the heart of LEGO bricks and the LEGO system. Looking for a tool to unlock innovation within the company, the LEGO Group realized that a solution might be found in the LEGO System itself: just as the LEGO Group had been telling children to ‘build their dreams’ for decades, so perhaps adults could be asked to build their visions for future strategy. Building upon the inclusive and participatory nature of the LEGO System, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® rejects the idea that external ‘experts’ must be brought in to identify problems, and to propose solutions; on the contrary, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® begins with the assumption that the answers are ‘already in the room’, and invites participants to ‘think with their hands’ to build their understandings. Every member of the team participates, and everyone has a voice. LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® went through a number of iterations from 1998 to 2010, and has been successfully used by businesses around the world. Furthermore, the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® concept has been developed to meet the needs of teachers and educators, and specially designed ‘LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® for Education’ products and training are available for this target group (see http://educatorsweb.lego.com).
