GSNM 5-7th September 2018 – Leiden, The Netherlands “TECHNOLOGY @WORK IN THE 21ST CENTURY”

Join the yearly Global Social Technical Systems Network Meeting!
Innovation in technology is occurring at an exponential rate. Artificial intelligence, Machine Learning, Blockchain, Data Science … all are garnering significant attention as they enable new possibilities for individuals, companies, ecosystems and society at large. For us as organization design and developers, it is imperative that we not only better understand these developments and what is behind them, but also understand the implications on organization form/design and on the design process itself – in the spirit of continuing to help create better places to work and places that work better.
Hence the topic for this year’s meeting: Technology @ Work in the 21st Century.
