ABS day by NextGen

While agility and the principles of shared leadership are now gaining momentum around the world, only few large organizations have successfully adopted new ways of working at scale.

Distributed responsibility, self-organization, purpose-oriented work, transparency, and trust-based collaboration are all characteristics of successful next generation enterprises.

The road ahead is often bumpy, complex and filled with uncertainty. Agility at scale can at times be perceived as a new bureaucracy. In some instances, the successful introduction of new ways of working is tied to a leader, and can be lost at once following the leader’s departure. In the face of such outcomes, what is behind the idea of shared leadership and what does it look like in reality? More specifically: What concrete benefits can a large organization derive from it?

With this event we want to move from awareness to practice. Practitioners and pioneers committed to shared leadership will share their recipes for success as well as past experiences and expertise to avoid failures.

We invite you to join us for practical workshops, inspiring keynotes and artistic performances to become witnesses and ambassadors of the next generation enterprise.
