The innovation lab Managing Disruption helps CSOs to successfully pursue their missions by establishing skills that spot, embrace, and manage disruption. Participants will receive inspiring input based on the Centre’s extensive work on the future of CSOs:
- How Disruptive Change is affecting the civil society sector
- A call to action for ICSOs to diversify, adapt and innovate their Business Models
- Establishing an Organisational Culture of Change
- A change agenda for ICSOs, challenging CSOs to raise their game and “ACT BIG” rather than trying to protect their status quo (to find out more, visit our Disrupt&Innovate blog and read the book by Centre ED Burkhard Gnärig The Hedgehog and the Beetle – Disruption and Innovation in the Civil Society Sector)
As a participant, you will explore causes of disruption and develop strategies and tools for your organisation to successfully navigate disruption. You will:
1. Envisage your organisation “after disruption”
Here you will develop “case studies on the future” imagining possible futures for your organisation. You will look at changes among your donors, your recipients/partners and the environment in which your organisation operates. How will they shape your organisation’s future?
2. Explore how to disrupt your organisation before someone else does so
Here you will develop a concrete plan how to disrupt and transform your organisation, gaining new insights and tools for conducting transformative change.
The learning process will be conducted in a dynamic manner, allowing you to apply your insights to specific situations you face within your organisation.
The lab is open to aspiring and experienced CSO changemakers, addressing middle and senior managers. The maximum number of participants is 20.
