Harness the power of the collective

Agile has revolutionised how work is done. How can we now apply this thinking to create better organisations?

A busy pedestrian crossing with lots of people crossing the road.

The world is becoming exponentially complex and harder to navigate. The way we design and run organisations is being disrupted and challenged.

Much of our knowledge of organisation design, culture, management and leadership is a result of last century’s predictive and stable conditions.

Yet phenomena like the Great Resignation are forcing us to rethink how and why people work. If anything, the Covid19 pandemic has accelerated this change. As we emerge from this, it is not enough to assume that business will “return to normal”.

The way we work has changed



of businesses have changed their views on working from home and now offer it to employees since COVID began.


of employees participated in online learning, up from 31% in 2020.


of people surveyed in the Meaning and Purpose at Work Survey said they would sacrifice up to 23 percent of their future lifetime earnings for work that is more meaningful.


of people surveyed are considering or actively looking for new roles.

It is time to reinvent our organisations to become a powerful force for social, environmental and economic good.

It is time to rethink what it means to be part of an ecosystem.

It is the time to explore new possibilities for how we interact at work.

It is time to turn our attention to what is possible.

The Adaptive NZ conference is designed to bring together a diverse range of people and explore how we might help create organisations that can not only survive these conditions, but flourish.

The conference will blend inspirational talks, networked learned, open spaces and case studies. Over two days on the beautiful Auckland waterfront, the business community will share what they are trying and what is (and isn’t) working.

Hear from CEO’s, thought leaders, practitioners, and business owners who are spearheading a future where organisations are thriving, and work is meaningful.
