CAN ELEPHANTS DANCE?!
How can large organisations successfully develop more efficient and innovative organisational capabilities?
Or is the idea of a large agile and collaborative Enterprise simply a far-fetched pie-in-the-sky concept?
What are the practical challenges of trying to harness knowledge from across a large organisation in a flexible way?
Some business analysts argue it is imperative that large organisations transform themselves into collaborative enterprises – using social technologies – so they can compete cost-effectively, imaginatively, and more quickly with nimbler rivals - otherwise they risk being dis-intermediated and left behind.
In this session, we will hear from a range of large organisations who are seeking to become more agile and collaborative. Some will be providing updates on progress they have made since sharing with members previously.We will learn how they are working to build a shared sense of purpose for their organisations; how they are encouraging contributions; building an infrastructure and scaling their collaborative processes.
We will also gain the perspective of smaller networked organisations who are structured radically differently to large organisations; and this session will be also be an opportunity to gain quality collaborative face-to-face time with your peers who are engaged in agile and collaborative enterprise projects.
Please note: Three attendees per member company due to space availability at The Gherkin.
