This symposium focuses on how we might learn from the transformations and the dynamics that become embedded into our personal and work lives and our organisations as brought about by the rapidly evolving contexts surrounding us. We are transforming in response. One major example indicates the changes brought by the global pandemic of COVID-19 and the ways in which we have transformed our communications and where and how we work.
We don’t know what the future will bring and however we consciously plan, some dynamics play out at hidden levels. There are many opportunities to learn as these transitions and transformations occur and become embedded in organisational cultures. Some are occurring so rapidly that we might easily lose the chance to learn from them. How this can be done is of importance to the ways we might work in the future.
