17 January 2019

This fourth ‘shamelessly’ practical seminar will be an exposition and exploration of what it means to practically consider the whole field four-dimensionally, through both space and time, in your work with organisational change and development.

The learning aim of the seminar is to develop an increasing awareness and understanding of the impact and relevance of the organisation’s history when working with organisations: even the tiniest step into a group, organisation or culture activates this history.

We will work with artefacts from the Institute’s archive to open up questions about organisational contemporaneity, the ecosystem of an archive and other organisational, philosophical and aesthetic concepts. We will also experientially explore the practices that support working with organisations and their history – practices that provide support to the dynamics of excavating an organisation’s history.

Led by Juliet Scott, Principal Consultant, TIHR Artist-in-Residence, Archive & 70th Anniversary Festival Director and Antonio Sama, TIHR Professional Partner and Senior Lecturer, Consultant & Historian of Ideas, Canterbury Christ Church University Business School; both will draw on their experience of opening up the Tavistock Institute’s archive with the Wellcome Library and how this work has informed the development and customisation of their own practice as organisational consultants.

Applications are now being invited for this seminar on Thursday, 17 January 2019and the next seminar: Working with Virtual Strangers: The dynamics of leading and working in agile teams on Friday, 22 March 2019.  You can apply for one or both here.
