"The Messy Reality of Change"

A CIO Round Table

Hosted by Relume and LaFosse Associates at One Alfred Place, London. WC1E 7EB

6.00 - 8.30pm, Thursday 4th June 2015

If you are working in an organisation that is not involved in change or if the change you are involved in is problem-free, then the CIO roundtable we are holding on 4th June 2015 will probably be of little interest to you.

However, if you are similar to the majority of organisations we encounter and are struggling with change in some form then we would be delighted if you could join us.
The evening will be facilitated by Asher Rickayzen, a Partner in Relume Ltd, and is based on his book, A Home for the Unspoken: 12 Stories from the Mess of Organisational Life, which explores the gap between the way we often expect things to be in organisations and the messy reality we really experience. For example, the gap between what a project plan is telling us and what our gut feel reveals is something that the machinery of review boards often deters us from examining even though it might provide breakthrough possibilities.

Asher suggests that our reluctance to work with this gap is the source of so many of the difficulties of change. If we're not careful we can invest more energy in pretending things are the way we want them to be rather than confronting the way things actually are. A search for best practice might provide comfort but it represents the forlorn hope that we can avoid difficulty.
The book is based around real-life stories and we hope you will share your stories on the evening as our guests did when we ran a similar session in February.
