KIN Winter 2013 Workshop
Organisational Change: making it stick
Date: 3 December 2013
Venue: Hunton Park Hotel, near Watford
According the Harvard Business Review there is a 60-70% failure rate for organizational change projects — a shocking statistic that has stayed constant from the 1970′s to the present. Given this backdrop, how can we ensure that our knowledge-sharing practice, collaboration and innovation initiatives deliver the benefits that we know are possible? We will have a great mix of external speakers, research perspective, participant activities and member case studies.
Our external speakers include:
- Susannah Clements, Deputy CEO CIPD Chartered Institute of Personnel Development and Group HR Director at Carillion
- Dr Lucia Garcia, is a social psychologist with the Organisational Research Group at the London School of Economics. She will share her insights as to why individuals choose to embrace, accept, reject or ignore change in organisations.
- Clare Hickson, a specialist in organisational transition and will run a change simulation exercise through the day
We will also have KIN Member case studies including:
- ConocoPhillips, who this year underwent a large reorganisation, splitting off their 'downstream' activities to re-form Phillips66.
- The College of Policing has undergone several significant organisational changes, latterly from the National Policing Improvement Agency, it is now responsible for developing standards of professional policing from ‘evidence-based practice’.
- The British Council have been undergoing major changes in structure, funding model and reduced consequent reduced numbers. Their proactive approach to knowledge retention has been successful in managing continuity of major projects through these huge organisational changes.
