Shaping up for stormy times and tapping into emerging potential
The Immersion Days '21 were a new series of co-sensing, co-shaping and prototyping on emerging trends and their implications for the field of international cooperation. Taking place online in January 2021, the event brought together nearly 100 professionals from the countries of operations and from the organisations' headquarters in Switzerland. The diversity of participants allowed for a rich exchange of perspectives and experiences.
We should all take a close interest in our future. For it is where you and I will spend the rest of our lives. It is where our organisations will have to evolve in order to remain relevant.
The story behind the event
Covid-19 has challenged most of the certainties we had before. At the same time, the pandemic has been a catalyst of what already existed but was hardly noticeable. For this reason, one year after the Immersion Day "Shaping the organisation of the future", we continued to explore what lies ahead of us and asked: What new path do we need to take as organisations and professionals to remain relevant in the future? How can we get ready for this path? We addressed these questions from different perspectives: attitude, management, collaboration and resilience.
The event attracted people from all over the world. If it is offered online again, I will encourage some of our teams from the countries of operations to participate as well.
