Event description

Description

UVA Forward and Organizational Excellence invite you to join us for this event.

Description:

The coming technology tsunami will require every organization to become more adaptive, responsive and innovative. Operational excellence will be necessary but no longer sufficient. This will likely require every organization to become a high performance learning organization - learning from continuous experimentation.

This Workshop will focus on how to create high performance learning teams culturally and how to do fast low-risk learning experiments.

  • In order to maximize the effectiveness of this workshop, attendees should read Ed Hess' latest book Learn or Die: Using Science to Build a Leading-Edge Learning Organization. Copies of his book are available through the University Library and can be purchased at the UVA bookstore at a 25% discount.

  • There will be coffee and light breakfast at 8:00, and the workshop will begin promptly at 8:30.
