Interactive Planning Workshops


FractalOps interactive planning workshops are based on the research of Frederic Laloux in the seminal work Reinventing Organizations: A Guide to Creating Organizations Inspired by the Next Stage of Human Consciousness. Laloux has granted this content to the public domain, and a portion of the net proceeds are gifted directly to him. Sessions in four modules help leaders and teams understand and implement self-managing, fractal operations that respond continually to change and thrive in uncertainty. For conventional organizations that are not quite ready to make the leap to self-management, the Self-Management Daily Practices workshops can be customized to introduce aspects of self-management.

“The great and terrible irony of modern business is that so many managers feel overburdened with responsibility, while so many employees feel unchallenged and unfulfilled in their jobs. The way to a happier and more prosperous state is clear: Concede once and for all that employees, not managers, are the true engines of progress, and dedicate your management career to creating an environment in which employees can stretch for higher and higher levels of performance.” Ken Iverson, Plain Talk
