Presentation Abstract:

Planned change in the workplace is increasingly organized and led by experienced project managers. The Project Management Institute estimates that by 2027, employers will need millions more individuals working in project management-oriented roles.  While the PMBOK enables project managers to plan and implement projects which consider identifiable organizational-level issues and risks, the World Economic Forum suggests that organizations will increasingly be challenged by multi-stakeholder environmental, technological, societal, geopolitical and economic disruption in the coming years. The added stress of disruption on organizations will necessitate more frequent unplanned change initiatives, potentially penalizing the more rigid and “fragile” organizations.

Learning Objectives

In this session, participants will:

  • Examine the sources of organizational disruption expected in the coming years
  • Compare and contrast the impact of disruption on organizational performance systems over time based on Nassim Nicholas Taleb notion of “antifragile” systems
  • Identify leadership responses to various forms of disorder that have the potential to either decrease or increase the value of organizations over time
  • Describe 10 leadership developmental activities that enable leaders to develop the action logic and skills that can support the evolution of complex systems in response to disruption.
