From Organisational To Systems Change: Organisation Development for Positive Impact

As the triple crisis in the environment, economy and public health accelerates, the need to reform organisations and rebalance institutions becomes ever more urgent.

Many new and exciting business models are trying to do just that. Circular economy and regenerative concepts, novel financial instruments and social enterprises are transforming the way organisations do business and measure success, how they interact with customers, supply chains and each other.

But has the way in which organisational change is led and managed kept up with this proliferation of innovation? Is the wider panoply of stakeholders taken into consideration?

In this session we will explore approaches to design and development that take a more integrated and systemic perspective on change for positive impact, that move us from a focus on individual organisations to addressing organisational systems.

We’ll be asking: how do we develop next-stage organisations that enable people, society and nature to flourish?
