ABOUT THE CONFERENCE “THE REVOLUTION OF CO”, INITIATIVE OF HEC ALUMNI
“A revolution occurs before our eyes, without realizing the upheavals it will bring to our way of designing and manufacturing products and services, driving and financing projects, guiding and animating teams or, while simply, to work with others in our professional structures.
There is not a single domain of the company that will escape the potential of novelties that this transformation carries in it: it is the collaborative revolution.
The practices, which underpin this transformation, are part of new models that have been grouped under a generic name: “the company of co”.
In the United States, some authors have counted up to 18 “co” practices: co-working, co-development, co-construction, co-responsibility, co-financing, co-entrepreneurship, etc. A recent study by McKinsey Cabinet details the different types of earnings related to collaborative and networked work, both internally and externally: faster access to information (75 respondents), reduced cost of communication (58), access to experts (50), reduction of the time to market (27), increased innovation (25), etc.
We took the party, to illustrate in vivo the collaborative practices, to organize the Forum itself in a collaborative form. Paule Boffa-Comby, President of ReThink & LEAD was invited to open the evening and define, concretely, what collective intelligence is and its impact on the modes of organization and leadership. “
This was followed by a question and answer session with the room alongside Pierre Deheunynck, Director of human resources at Credit Agricole.
As a result of this round table, the participants spread over the 9 workshops organized on 9 themes that respond to the problem of the day: “How can collaboration enable us to create value for the company?”
During these workshops the three speakers spent a time in each of the groups for observing and guiding the teams.
