Executive Corporate Learning Forum - ECLF Skip to Content


The Executive Corporate Learning Forum (ECLF) is a community of top executives from major global corporations, who have a strategic responsibility to build organizational capabilities and drive large-scale learning, change and transformation processes. We provide an intellectually and socially inspiring environment that encourages in-depth discourse on key challenges large organizations are facing today.

Over the last 10 years ECLF has grown into one of the world's premier strategic dialogue platforms about the future of transformational leadership and learning; a community that shares experiences, supports each other in tackling practical challenges, and that jointly explores how to build the capabilities that are required in the 21st century organization.

ECLF is vendor-free, driven by practitioners only. Membership requires a personal invitation.

10th Focus on Practice Meeting

Collaboration 2.0 – Knowledge Management and Cultural Change in the Context of Digital Transformation

February 1-2, 2018

Otto Group HQ


With its 123 major companies and a presence in more than 30 countries across 4 continents, Otto Group has always put an emphasis to create a highly networked organization that allows for a constructive balance between corporate governance and the diverse needs of businesses and regions. As a major player in the massively disruptive retail sector, the company went early through massive digital transformation processes, leading to a unique strategy for future growth.

Managing the transition from a paper based mail order organization towards a fully digital retail group requires massive cross-boundary collaboration - a topic that will be seamlessly connecting with the theme of our recent annual summit.


Our 10th Focus on Practice meeting will provide insights on how to use collaboration to initiate, push and manage cultural change and digital transformation in a big organization, with special emphasis on cross-boundary knowledge management.

We particularly will discuss:

  • What kind of platforms are helpful

  • What kind of communication is needed

  • What kind of cultural change process is necessary

  • What role does knowledge management play in this context

As always at our FOP meetings, we will deep-dive into  the experiences of our host and compare them with practices and ideas from other ECLF companies.


Please REGISTER by November 30, 2017 by obtaining a "ticket" via eventbrite.
