11th Focus on Practive Meeting @Deutsche Bahn

Jenny Zeller, head of Deutsche Bahn Academy, has been so kind to invite us to Potsdam for our next Focus on Practice meeting, which will take place on January 23/24 2019. You will find  details about the agenda and logistics in the event section of our website, where you also can download the detailed program. if you would like to attend, please register via the Eventbrite portal, latest by December 20.

The meeting will provide the opportunity to deep-dive into the learning and transformation challenges of Deutsche Bahn, with special emphasis on the changing role of HR and the interplay of L&D with other units that help to drive innovation and change. In particular, we will tackle questions such as

  • how to support a workforce of 300,000 people on their way to the digital future?
  • what is the role and contribution of IT-related  efforts in the overall scenario of digital transformation? How does it relate do L&D?
  • How can we best structure the collaboration with various entities that drive change?

In addition to the above, we will also have the opportunity to discuss with Jenny and her team how they experience the first months of working as a holacracy, in total self-organization – a bold move the DB Academy took earlier this year. 

2018 ECLF Global Summit – September 12-14, 2018, hosted by Daimler

Our plans to hold our 14th annual ECLF summit at Roca Group’s headquarter in Barcelona were unfortunately derailed by the political turbulences in Catalonia as the situation in the region remains volatile. It’s a great testament to the flexibility and openness of our community that Daimler’s CLO Oliver Fischer spontaneously offered to host us at the company’s Automobile Museum in Stuttgart. - Thank you Oliver!

The venue is unfortunately already booked during our traditional July time slot. We therefore have moved this year's annual summit to September 12-14Please mark your calendars accordingly. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

ECLF Partners with "Developing Leaders" Magazine and "Ideas for Leaders"

Most of you have met Roddy Millar, who was so kind to help write the syntheses of last year’s summit and our recent FOP meeting. We are intensifying our relationship through a strategic partnership with Roddy’s ventures, which will add significant value to our network. The partnership is twofold:

  • Starting immediately, ECLF will enjoy a dedicated section within “Developing Leaders”, a premier magazine on current thinking about leadership and organization, with about 60,000 subscribers from across the globe. The section will feature practices from member companies and inform about ECLF activities that may be of interest for a larger community. Check out the inaugural article about Bertelsmann’s Creative Leadership program. BTW, as part of our agreement, members will receive a significant discount on print magazine subscriptions.
  • In addition, ECLF members will also receive privileged access to “Ideas for Leaders, a carefully curated and growing library of cutting edge management research. “Ideas for Leaders” selects outstanding articles from leading academic journals and “translates” them into actionable ideas that can be readily implemented by executives.

We have created a special partnership section on our website which will provide access to these resources.

Global Survey about Organizational Social Media Literacy (OSML)

In the next days you will receive an invitation to participate in the Global OSML Index project – the inaugural research initiative by the Center for the Future of Organization at the Drucker School of Management which I have briefly introduced at our last summit.

Through this project we want to measure the degree to which companies and their leaders leverage social technology to shape their business processes for the challenges of the 21stcentury. Please be so kind to support this initiative by not only participating in the survey yourself but also by inviting as many leaders as possible in your organization to share their perspective in this critical component of digital leadership capabilities. If you want to learn more about the project, click here.

Keep your eyes open for the survey invitation mail which includes more detailed information.  BTW, ECLF members will receive a free executive summary of the results of this project.
