Let’s talk about CULTURE! How do we create organizational culture conducive to innovation?

November 17 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm UTC+1

Hosted conversational space to discuss how we can create organizational culture conducive to innovation in large, hierarchic organizations.

About this Event

Governments adapted quickly to the Covid crisis, some with more success and more innovations in partnering with stakeholders, in tailor-making decision-making processes and in delivering products and services badly needed in record times. How we transpose the lessons learnt from this period into our everyday work in government administrations and build an organizational culture conducive to innovation beyond the crisis operations is the focus of attention of this conversation.

Organizational culture is a key element in any successful transformation. Yet, we talk less about it in the absence of fail-safe recipes on what actually works in large, hierarchical organizations. You might have heard the saying “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”… even the most advanced, ahead-of-their-time strategies fail if not supported by consciously orchestrated culture change processes to create lasting impacts in the organization.

This session intends to connect professionals around the world who work towards shifting the organizational culture or are simply interested in exploring ways of doing that with other like-minded peers in large, hierarchical organizations, whether in the public or the private sector. We are offering a hosted space for participants to share their ideas being tried and tested, and the insights from their experiences with the group gathering at this occasion. This will be a purely participatory, co-creative conversational space where participants will co-define the conversations they want and need to have with peers in this mutual learning event, sharing their insights and harvesting lessons learnt (i.e. Open Space social technology). This is not a speaker-driven event.

Join us for this exploration in conversation with like-minded professionals!The event will be facilitated by a team of change agents working in the European public service.
