Advanced Management Workshop – Exclusive for C – Level
With renowned Associate Professor Spencer Harrison | Europe Campus | INSEAD
Mark your calendar: 26 and 27 August 2021 in Hotel Sunrose 7, Bohinj
With positive organizational change you will learn how to find pockets of “positive cultural deviancy”.
Organizational culture is important.
Strong culture can increase net income by 765% over ten years.
Culture is a double edged sword: it provides an organization with a shared set of values which provides a sense of stability while at the same time this stability can limit change and adaptation.
In a format of an interactive and engaging learning experience through the insights from Design Thinking and research on positive organizational change.
Building a toolkit that you will use to map your organizational culture and how you can change with new set of assumptions. Rather than thinking of change as a top-down response to an urgent external threat, we will explore change as a conversation between all layers of the organization to locate internally the most exciting, energizing ideas that already exist in the culture.
It is no longer a debate. Data clearly shows that organizations that get culture right, perform better. But that doesn’t make managing culture easy. Indeed, data shows that strong cultures lead to better performance but also hamper change. And change-focused cultures lead to adaptation but lessen commitment. With all these paradoxes in play, most executives feel powerless to impact culture and preferring to wait for the CEO to simply send out an announcement or authorize a “refresh.” Professor Harrison outlines a theory of “how culture moves” inside and outside of organizations to make sense of these paradoxes. He also reveals the “culture moves” that managers at all levels of the organization can make to map, revitalize, and nurture organizational culture.

Associate Professor - Organisational Behaviour
Europe Campus I INSEAD
Spencer Harrison is an Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD.
His area of expertise focuses on three areas: 1) Creating: how do managers and leaders help people be creative together together? Professor Harrison is currently studying Grammy winning bands, modern dancers, and t-shirt designers to see how this happens. 2) Coordinating: how do groups and teams work together in patterns that lead to optimal outcomes? He examines how individuals can survive a plane crash, people that are amazingly passionate about their work (rock climbers and architects), and how networks of really smart people that fly rockets figure out how humans might live on Mars. 3) Connecting: how do people connect with the organisations they work for? He is working with Fortune 100 firms to dial in not only how new employees can better adjust to their work, but also how these companies can actually learn from their new employees.
Spencer studies creativity, coordination, and culture. His research includes work with Google, Salesforce, Marvel Studios, Black Diamond, Modern Dancers, T-shirt designers, and plane crash survivors among others. He originally studied poetry (he prefers Tanka), grew up rockclimbing (he spends mornings bouldering), and is fascinated by curiosity (especially when it comes from his children). He is a co-founder of the Creativity Collaboratorium, a group of creativity scholars that meet once a year and he serves on the boards of AMJ and AMD was the Chair of the MOC Division at the Academy of Management.
