Liberating the Organization - one meeting at a time

304 views

Published on

On April 12, 2018 we explored the org-changing potential of micro-structures together with the MeetUp group Designing the Organization (https://www.meetup.com/de-DE/designing-the-organization/events/249114700/).

I wanted to give a taste for what becomes possible when you design the conditions for human interaction.
I wanted to inspire people to enhance their repertoire for the time when in group.
And we shared stories from the field and heard how Liberating Structures informed larger-scale changes.

Start liberating your org - one meeting at a time!
