Organisational learning is a core dynamic capability for a changing world.

It reflects a continuous process of acting and experimenting, creating and integrating knowledge, absorbing and responding to change. Being able to activate organisational learning can make the difference between success and decline over time.

At the first event in our 2018/19 programme, we will explore this important theme to help you develop new, actionable insights.

We will share ideas, experiences and tools through a range of speaker and workshop sessions. Helping you to enhance performance and unlock potential in your own organisations.

It’s a practical day, packed full of good things. We expect it to be both useful and enjoyable. And we hope you’ll join us.

View full Agenda.

In brief:

Henley Forum’s Director, Dr Sharon Varney, will be your host for the day and will help you to warm up your thinking on this important topic. She will also introduce the new Henley Forum Listening Project and explain how you can get involved.

Simon Atkinson from Ipsos will then help you to activate your own learning with a fascinating knowledge-sharing session entitled Learning from Big Data. He’ll be looking at the myths and realities of Big Data, and differentiating between Big Data, AI and Machine Learning. Our popular Members’ Showcase session will be led by Christine Astaniou from the Financial Conduct Authority. Christine will share some of her experiences and insights from embedding lessons learned at the FCA. Then Dr Jonathan Passmore will invite us to explore the role of coaching in activating organisational learning. And there will be an opportunity to practice some coaching skills, to help you further activate your own learning.

Over lunch, you will have the opportunity to take part in one of our Henley Forum Listening Project conversations about knowledgeable practice for the next 10 years.

Henley Forum’s Michael Craven will be exploring how the potential and value of Action Learning has been expanded through technology which makes it possible to connect people from far and wide through virtual action learning sets. You will have the opportunity to experience the Action Learning Lite method and to consider how to develop knowledge value with Action Learning.

Chris Collison will be offering a preview of the Hackathon that he and Annette Hexelschneider will be running in November, giving you the opportunity to help us frame our hacking topic.

And finally, we are delighted to welcome back Paul Matthews from People Alchemy. Paul’s very practical workshop: The Nuts & Bolts of Learning Transfer, will help you to explore the many simple things you can do to enhance learning transfer – helping you to activate your individual and organisational learning.
