Meet international author, speaker and creator of the Open Participatory Organization (OPO) – Bonnitta Roy.
An OPO is an organization that will naturally evolve itself based on need, without having to use a manager hierarchy or an organizational chart. Decision making, governance and policies are all transparent, accessible for participation from any employee and allowed to emerge over time.
The old structures of hierarchy, centralization and bureaucracy are breaking apart. Those who cannot break out of old habits will be left behind. Companies who do not adapt to new principles will fail.
In this workshop we will outline and process the principles and practices that are innovating organizational life and some of the keys to liberate work:
- Open architecture
- Structures that learn
- Values that connect
- Governance that evolves
There are many books, stories and good ideas about reinventing organizations, but you might still find the idea challenging to understand and impossible to begin. Whether you are a start-up, an agile company looking to scale, or a large company wanting to become more agile – all the practices you need are already available to you to break down the old rules, break out of the old habits, and begin today to shift from standard “shop talk” to having conversations that matter, to shift from competitive to collaborative practices, to shift from bored and accommodating or frustrated and reactive modes to engaged, enthusiastic and creative modes of working…
What if all of this is actually in reach right now, just hidden in plain sight?
Learn how to be confident and successful in creating workplaces where people can flourish and organizations can thrive.
