About this Keynote

When you ask colleagues, “What are you working on right now?” you will receive a wide array of answers: from addressing a short-term tactical issue to enabling a company-wide pivot. Despite prolific use of the phrase, “right now” does not have a common definition and is not a standard unit of measure for time.

That widely varying concept of what constitutes the present is of critical importance when designing organizational change. This session suggests principles for transitioning from the emotionally fraught implementation of discrete transformations to a culture of continuous, coherent, value-informed change at every level.
