Henley Forum meeting, 29 November 2017

Scanning horizons

Heads up everyone! In a changing world, when today is different to yesterday and tomorrow will be different again, scanning our horizons becomes a must do. Seeing the bigger picture and staying in tune with how it’s changing will help us ensure our work stays relevant.

The fourth event in our 2017/18 programme explores this important theme to help you develop new actionable insights. Join us to explore how you can scan your horizons. View full Agenda.

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.

In brief:

Henley Forum’s Director, Dr Sharon Varney, will be your host for the day. She will begin the day by warming up your thinking on this important topic. Next, Rowena Davis will run a Systems-Centered® workshop session to help you map your organization and perhaps gain new insights into the context in which you are working. Our Members’ Showcase today is led by Stephen Rose from NATS, the UK’s national air traffic control service. NATS certainly know a thing or two about scanning horizons!

Esmee Wilcox will be sharing her stories and experiences from introducing horizon-scanning into a large local authority as a route to solving tomorrow’s big issues, as well as today’s. Thomas Zeller from international electronics group Rohde & Schwarz will pick up the topic of strategic partnering. He will explain why inter-organisational business networks are so important and will briefly introduce his research.

If you use or are moving towards mobile technology, then you won’t want to miss this report back on our 2016 Henley Forum research project: Technostress. Johnny Jensen from Nordea Bank and Henley’s Professor Jane McKenzie will share the positive messages and range of concerns expressed by 882 managers who responded to the questionnaire. Sandra Cavill will share the consequent plans to address concerns and embed improvements into the Environment Agency. The workshop discussions will explore worthwhile ways any organisation can improve IT implementation, reduce technostress and encourage people to use technology responsibly without detriment to their well-being.
