We are happy to invite speaker proposals for the “Requisite Agility Unsymposium” that will be held on 5th -6th December 2019 in Heidelberg , Germany. Our aim is to bring the world’s leading system thinkers, holistic organizational anatomists, enterprise pathologists and engineers, agile coaches, and other practitioners to share their experiences, expertise and insights and to learn from each other. This event will be a great opportunity to share experience, solutions to the most common issues and will help to identify new challenges in the field.

Speakers are invited to present on topics to inspire dialogue about the characteristics and design of organizations - of all types and scale - that will best meet the challenges for this century. Presentations may address the topic from a transdisciplinary approach, including but not limited to systems thinking, design thinking, human dynamics, anthropo-complexity, leadership, adult development, and requisite organization, agile, business agility etc that capture or embody the intention of Requisite Agility.

 

Suggested Topic Descriptions

  • How would you describe 21st century organizations as a whole in structural or com-positional terms? 

  • What makes the layers / functions / elements function as an integrated whole? 

  • What makes the parts work together so harmoniously (or not)? 

  • What intellectual frameworks are appropriate (and which not) for understanding organizing and are requisite for agility?

  • If we speak about change / transformation , which of the dimensions do we see as a figure (/driver) and which are ground in the process of emergence? 

  • What’s our idea about the patterns of influence of one process on the other?

  • How might we describe the impact of emergence on the structural aspects of the critical relationships? 

  • Which overriding relationships are influencing the emergence? How does that take place?

  • What would be the best way to test the limits of the RA system(s) we are considering? 

  • Which of the systems that we might consider has more significant potential to contribute to an RA transformation?

  •  How do the different subsystems (current organization and desired organization) enhance or weaken each other? 

  • What precisely does it mean to “coordinate” the two systems when we are speaking about coordination an RA transformation project?
