Design for Change – conference in Paris 28-30 March

Logo_CiuPWe’ve a great programme lined up in Paris this year.  The theme is a very current one in the field of change – design.  We will be looking at organisational design, service design, learning design and product design and what they mean for change practitioners.

Not only do we have input from experts, colleagues and academics, we have practitioners from major European businesses on both  Friday and Saturday.  They will present and run workshops on important case studies.

CCC alumni and tCL members Fabienne Munch, now Dean of the Design School at Montreal University, and Patricia Cichocki, co-author of the very successful book, Organization Design, will be leading sessions and we have a keynote speaker Dr Stephane Girod, who will be revealing his research on getting the best pay-back from remodelling organisations.  Our colleagues Walter McFarland and Susan Goldworthy will be showcasing their book “Choosing to Change”, and Jim Armstrong will be presenting his, “Improving international capacity development: bright spots”

As last year, the event will be held at the Cité Internationale Universitaire, 17 Boulevard Jourdain, 75014 Paris.  The event starts at 9.00 on Friday 28th March and closes after lunch on Sunday 30th March, at 2.00.  On Friday evening, we have a wine tasting in the early evening and you are free to arrange your own dinner.  On Saturday, we will dine together at La Terrasse, a lovely restaurant near the Ecole Militaire.

The detailed agenda will be available soon.  In the meantime, CCC alumni and members of The Change Leaders should have received information on how to register.  The early-bird discount ends on Sunday 16th February.  We regret we cannot take bookings from outside of these groups.
