Thursday, June 10th, 2021 at 9:00 am Eastern Time
The business landscape may have changed radically over the past year, but the challenges of organizing people to collaborate across company, culture, language, and location boundaries persist. Kates Kesler’s new book, “Networked, Scaled, and Agile: A Design Strategy for Complex Organizations,” offers frameworks and tools for managing the tensions inherent in every organization today. All companies have to focus on maintaining speed while they grow. Through a conversation with Borge Obel, Amy Kates will share insights from the book and take questions from participants.
