The Connected Organization - Dave Gray

Universities, non-profits, governmental agencies, and Extension systems must embrace the principles of the Connected Organization in order to thrive in the future.

Join noted author and speaker Dave Gray (http://www.davegrayinfo.com/) to learn how the principles of The Connected Company can be applied to institutions and organizations such as Extension. Gray, who will be the keynote speaker at the National eXtension Conference 2014 will talk about why, to keep pace with today’s connected citizens, your University, Extension system, Governmental agency, or non-profit must become a connected organization.

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.

Connected organizations have the advantage, because they learn and move faster than their competitors. While others work in isolation, they link into rich networks of possibility and expand their influence.

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 (link below in Event location) or on the Network Literacy CoP YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/NetworkLiteracyCoP).
