Organizational change

Mark Addleson

I can speak on a range of topics related to organizational change including:
-why conventional management practices are obsolete in the era of knowledge-work and why organizations struggle to make relevant changes
-how knowledge work differs from old-style factory work
-the nature of the problems knowledge workers deal with (wicked problems) and how this influences workplace practices
-what kinds of practices are needed to foster employee engagement the workplace today
-the role of consultants in organizational change
-the spread of agile practices in the workplace and why organizations are paying attention to employees self-organizing or self-managing
-the importance of collaboration and sharing knowledge at work
-why culture – values, attitudes and relationships – is more important than structures and directives
