A Forum for Innovation

Open Colony Event

What happens when you give an MBA professor, a CEO, a CTO, a COO, a Chief People officer and a Design+Experience Officer 8-minutes to answer the following question:

How are organizational design and innovation connected?

We don’t know either but we intend to find out soon at our SF Event this Spring. Our panel of experts will (kindly) judge their responses and fun will be had by all.

Want to attend? Let us know. Can’t attend? Never fear, we record and post our events so you won’t miss out.

Hope to see you in SF.

Best,
Caitlin and The Salon Team

Open Colony Salon on Vark

The Salon is a forum and resource for all things WORK, why we do it, how we do it, who we do it with, and why. Our trusted Salon members are the industry’s leading thinkers. Salon membership is by invitation only, but the Salon’s collective contributions are open to everyone thus anyone can ask The Salon members questions by joining Vark and prefacing questions with “OCSalon:”

Here is a tip for Salon Members:  the tool works much better when you are signed in to Vark and The Salon at the same time.  Also, in order to receive the questions most interesting to you, we suggest matching your “interests” on Open Colony with your “topics” on Vark.

Here is a tip for everyone:  We intend to focus on initially on the following topics:

  • Agile and/or Rapid Application Development and Design
  • Biomimicry
  • Cross-Cultural Business
  • Data Visualization
  • Design (Visual, Interactive, UXD, Environmental)
  • Executive Coaching
  • Innovative HR
  • Media
  • Organizational Design
  • Sociology of Work
  • Sustainable models for business, design and development
  • Start-Ups
  • Technology
  • Writing

Best,

Caitlin and The Salon Team

What is a cultural ambassador?

Cultural Ambassadors are Salon members, some of whom collaborate with Open Colony as business strategists, social scientists and executive search consultants contributing cultural assessments of talent, companies and industries in a particular part of the world.  In some cases they design research and content for The Salon.

Ambassadors demonstrate experience in and a passion for cross-cultural business and organizational design.   They allow Open Colony to customize services for diverse locations and cultures as well as see what is applicable to all of our work. We have ambassadors in London, Amsterdam, Stuttgart, Brussels, Munich, Qatar, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore, Seoul, in all the cities where we work.

Welcome to The Salon!

Welcome!

I am here to moderate a cross-cultural conversation between industry, academic, HR, and recruiting executives, an essential dialog if we are to discover ways to innovate the disciplines of executive search, business, organizational design, work culture, and talent-driven strategy. The Salon is a forum and resource for all things WORK, why we do it, how we do it, who we do it with, and why. Our trusted Salon members are the industry’s leading thinkers. Salon membership is by invitation only, but the Salon’s collective contributions are open to everyone. Research, writers and technology partners will evolve, but the spirit remains the same: create curious, industry-impacting conversations about important issues impacting our careers, companies, and industries.

Please contact me for suggestions on content, research, or new locations you’d like us to include or if you are interested in our Cultural Ambassador program.

Salon Rules of Engagement:

Members may post, comment, ask fellow members of The Salon a question, reach out to other members directly when they have shared contact information and interests, participate in events, post videos and much more. Though steeped in business, the Salon is not meant as a transactional space for business. Please keep in mind that while the Salon offers the opportunity to interact with a broad range of executives and talent, it is not meant for solicitation or posting of jobs or services.

Have fun!
