Collaboration for the 21st Century Organization
The 21st century brings a new level of connectedness.
Constantly we are working together with more and more people in more and more places. Team diversity increases, real face to face interactions decrease. The future of work predicts even more fragmentation. We work with people in different countries, timezones, cultures and in different languages. We are communicating through many different channels and devises often also outside of office hours.
Pressure increases and it becomes more and more difficult to keep track and a good overview.
To deal with these rapid changes and to make collaborating in this vast net effectively possible, an ever growing number of smart ideas has been developed. The big amount of tools and methods that are supposed to make our lives easier show how badly we feel the urge to improve the way we work together with others.
Impressive promises are being made and it is hard to tell what works and what doesn’t.
The opportunity for improvement is high but the chance of pitfalls is equally high. Even if we have chosen for a mix of tools and methods, we are still confronted with the big question of how we can make them actually work FOR us.
FOOC2016 invites everyone that faces these challenges of modern work-life to Amsterdam to share experiences, learn together and co-create new ways of collaboration.
We will welcome up to 60 practitioners to be part of this adventure in tackling the present and future of the 21st century working life together.
