Dave Gray, who will be a keynote speaker at the March 2014 joint meeting of the National Extension Directors & Administrators (NEDA) and the National eXtension Conference, will present “The Connected Organization” at a virtual conference hosted by eXtension on Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 1 p.m. ET. Go to https://learn.extension.org/events/1096 for details.
Universities, non-profits, governmental agencies, and Extension systems must embrace the principles of the Connected Organization to thrive in the future.
Being connected means being deeply engaged with faculty, staff, partners, and clientele, changing how work is done, how you measure success, and how performance is rewarded. It requires a new way of thinking about your organization: less like a machine to be controlled, and more like a complex, dynamic system that can learn and adapt over time.
Please join in learning how we can begin to transition Extension and others to being connected organizations. This is the first of three online sessions leading up to a dynamic conversation about the future of Extension to be held at the 3rd National eXtension Conference next March in Sacramento, California.
The presentation will be conducted as a Google+ Hangout On Air. Attendees can view and participate in the conversation on the Google+ Event page or on the Network Literacy CoP YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/NetworkLiteracyCoP).
