You are warmly welcome
to join us at the Imagination Club on
Wednesday, 11 June 2014 at 18h45 for an interactive, experimental
Organisations Under Change;
Are all Changes Needed?
By Anna Rydén
Here we go again, a new management and a new organisation...
Performance is good but not as good as expected,
we will address it with the new organisation…
We are in a transformation phase and we need to adjust
to the strategy with a reorganisation…
But do we really? Are we addressing the real reasons
why we need to reorganise and change? Do we need a reorganisation to
make changes? Are we allowing enough time for an organisation to settle
in order to see the desired results? Are we following-up and checking
that we are reaching the desired results? What are the desired results?
The questions can go on and on.
The answer to the question in the title is simple: change
is inevitable and for one reason or another all changes are needed.
The question is how companies are dealing with the effect of reorganisation
and change in practice.
Most of us know something about change management theory that deals
with how to implement change; there are tons of books, courses, online-tutoring,
academic reports and more about change management, organisational changes,
leadership under change and so forth. There are also big companies,
small companies and self-employed gaining their livelihood from change
management. But are any of them actually looking beyond the theory and
really looking at what the effect of change is? Yes, a few but not as
many as should be doing so.
This workshop is not about reorganisation and change management
theory. Instead it is about the effect of reorganisation and change.
Anna Rydén will try to answer some of the questions she has and
to share some of her ideas about effective reorganisations as well as
engage you in the discussion to share your experiences.
All you need is an open mind and some time.
Anna Rydén is self-employed and currently starting
up a business that will offer products and services in the well being
sector. Anna recently left the telecommunication industry after 20 years
seeing the rise, the fall and the consolidation of the industry. She
has held various management positions where she has gained experience
of organisational changes and change management by being one of the
middle managers tasked to execute the reorganisations.
Anna is taking this opportunity in the Imagination Club
to try out some of the ideas and questions she has about effective reorganisations.
