As a pioneer in collaborative management, Phusis partners have driven and accompanied for the last years transformations for large organizations.
Phusis first Authentic Transformation Summit will be a unique opportunity to share with you our practical experiences in implementing successfully collaborative governance.
Well-known top managers who have adopted or are adopting such models will also be present, together with Brian Robertson, the brain and driver behind one of the most radical collaborative governance systems, Holacracy.
If you are interested to understand or catch the new wave of management in large organizations, don’t miss Phusis Authentic Transformation Summit and join us on November 4th in Brussels for a unique experience.
More about collaborative governance
In 2012, Harvard professor John Kotter, best-selling author of “Leading change”, wrote in HBR : “The hierarchical structures and organizational processes we have used for decades to run and improve our enterprises are no longer up to the task of winning in this faster-moving world. […] Mounting complexity and rapid change create strategic challenges that even a souped-up hierarchy can’t handle.”
To answer that challenge, thousands of organizations across the world have since then adopted new managerial practices to become “Teal”, “Liberated”, “Holacratic”, “Sociocratic” or “Agile”.
In 2017, the worldwide “How Report” by LRN showed that the percentage of organizations attempting to adopt one of the above mentioned collaborative governances exploded from 3 to 8% between 2012 and 2016, leading to positive results both in their staff’s well-being and in financial results. Since then the numbers have kept rising.
So far however, the organizations adopting successfully these new governance models have been high-tech start-ups and small to medium organizations (below 200 people). But recently large multinationals have increasingly shown interest in testing these models. And some have started to implement them.
Are they being successful? What does it take?
The following speakers have confirmed their presence.
Co-founder of HolacracyOne
Brian Robertson is the world’s foremost expert on Holacracy, a revolutionary framework for running self-managing organizations. After years as CEO of an award-winning software company, he co-founded HolacracyOne to share this innovative framework with other organizations ready to self-manage. Brian wrote the book Holacracy: The New Management System for a Rapidly Changing World.
Managing partner of Archipelago Architects
Dirk D’herde graduated from KU Leuven in 1980. Since 2017 he is the managing partner of Archipelago Architects, a major Belgian architectural firm with +/- 120 collaborators working from two locations (Louvain and Brussels) with a broad thematical perspective but focusing on projects for caring, living, working and learning. After the new positioning of Archipelago Architects in the market, his attention is now fully focused on establishing a fluid and flexible organisation within the Archipelago group.
General Manager at Cofidis
Céline Motte’s professional career has been almost entirely in the Cofidis group. During the last 6 years as General Manager of the belgian subsidiary – and thanks to the discovery of Frédéric Laloux’s work – she initiated her personal and managerial transformation, inspired the transformation of the company and encouraged its employees to start their journey. In 2019, Céline took charge of creating a Development and Customer Experience Department within the Group’s Executive Committee, whose challenge is to transform operations. It implements the same levers for the development of collective intelligence and agility at the group level.
