Cranfield School of Management’s Changing World of Work group has unveiled a new webinar series that will focus on the group’s expertise in the areas of human resource management, employment relations, leadership, organisational behaviour and gender, diversity and inclusion.

First in the series, joining Professor Emma Parry – Head of the Changing World of Work Group, is Perry Timms who will be discussing the next steps for organisation design. Perry Timms has been a member of HR Magazine’s Most Influential Thinkers on three occasions and is an internationally renowned voice of transformative and progressive HR, organisational development and learning and change practice. 

The webinar, being held on 1 October 2020, will cover human energy and centricity, workflow and accountable systems, structures and inter-team dynamics and will explore what the possible architecture and operating systems of the future are likely to be. 

The announcement of the series follows Cranfield’s Visiting Professor Jo Swinson’s webinar earlier this month on ‘Learning from Lockdown: the Future of Work after COVID-19 with Jo Swinson’.
