This standalone practical lecture (does not need any previous knowledge on the topic) is the first step into looking human systems and using this knowledge to gain organizational alignment, with emphasis on clarity of authority. Surprisingly, the same processes function in any human system, including organizations that do not have managers.
During this online interactive lecture (using Zoom and Miro), you’ll get to:
Analyse the project or process you are managing (or are part of) and where you’d like to get better results
Understand the systemic issues behind conflict or delays (most of issues in organizations are systemic, but too often some single person gets blamed)
Look at your own role behind the issues (if you are part of the system, you contribute somehow to the problem, unknowingly), and most importantly
What you personally can do to get the system aligned, ensuring smooth development.
The lecture assumes you are in one of these positions: manager (who has direct reports) or project manager (no direct reports but responsible for project success).
Registration: participation is free, but there are limited seats (4 at the moment) available. To apply, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 2-3 sentences to explain your interest and motivation!
