Building the Agile Organization

A Thought Clinic with Niels Pflaeging - influencer, advisor, management exorcist.

About the Thought Clinic format

Niels Pflaeging teaches how the contemporary, smart and agile organization can be conceived, built and developed.  He will run this day with us in a Thought Clinic format. Meaning: No PowerPoint will be used, no lecturing will happen, and there will be no fixed agenda, nor break out sessions. Instead, Niels will come to us with a truckload full of thinking tools, practical theory, practical examples and reflection from his vast transformational consulting experience.

Every Thought clinic is different: Participants will shape the agenda together with Niels, by influencing interactions through their contributions, topics, questions and reflections. This workshop day derives energy from intense discourse within the group, and by Niels´ unconventional, constructively irritating way of holding the space.

Expect to be surprised, inspired, and invited to reflect both practice and theory.

Workshop objectives

  • You will learn about contemporary, consistent and complexity-robust thinking tools and organizational tools that will help you to successfully influence complex, living systems – including your organization. Fresh thinking for your company, your team, your leadership and change work
  • You will gain insight and you will also practice how seemingly unsolvable organizational problems can sharpened, and solved or dissolved with the help of Complexitools and Complexideas.

  • Human Nature at Work: How Motivation ticks – and how it doesn´t
  • The three structures of any organization: Why functional division, silos und matrix structures are dispensable
  • Hierarchy, Influence, Reputation: The three kinds of power in the organization

Every participant will receive a copy of the a href="http://www.complexitools.com" target="_blank">“Complexitools” book by Niels Pflaeging & Silke Hermann (in English or in German)

To help you prepare for the Thought Clinic, we will send you a copy of the Complexitools book by Niels Pfläging and Silke Hermann ahead of the workshop. We recommend reading the book ahead of the workshop date: This way, far more profound and far-reaching dialog is possible!

About Complexitools

buchmontageThe blue and the red - these are two completely different domains. Because complicated is not the same as complex!
In the domain of the complicated, often pretty much any method will suffice. Complicated problems can be solved with rules, processes, machines and algorithms. In the domain of the complex, however, companies need more: They need organizational tools that integrate people with ideas. In other words: Complexitools.
