The Open Leadership Symposium MAY 14-15 2019
For executive leaders, the alarming pace of change represents both a clear danger and a clear opportunity. By changing organizationally, there is opportunity to get 2X, 3X even 4X improvement.


This is the worlds first and only leadership symposium on how to apply Open methods to achieve agile and digital transformation. Open methods are those methods that engage the attention and energy of your workforce. Employee engagement is absolutely essential to your success in transformational change.

This conference is about that. Open methods of leadership leverage the power of invitation to engage employees, and achieve truly transformational outcomes. This is the leadership symposium where youll find out exactly how to do that, safely and pragmatically. Youll find your peers here, the leaders who have done it- your peers, who are doing it. Your peers who are now teaching others how.

And so: this is a very different kind of conference and symposium on business agility. Inside this symposium, you engage.

This is a learn-by-experience symposium on Open methods. At this event youll engage deeply with peers, and learn to use Open methods.

The methods that actually work, at scale.

Transformations cant be accomplished without others helping voluntarily, & people dont help unless you engage them first.       -Geoffrey Moore, ZONE TO WIN

Inside this Symposium we have assembled some of the worlds foremost authorities on the best Open methods for achieving enterprise transformation. These speakers and Workshop leaders are de facto experts on self-management and Open principles as applied to agile and transformation at scale. These experts on Open can and will show you how to safely and pragmatically bring much higher performance to your enterprise transformation through the use of these methods.

If you are responsible for leading agile and digital transformation, this is your conference.
