    The Organizational Design Community (ODC) invites you to the following webinar:

    Unlocking the Power of Organization Development 
    at Novartis

    Winnie Doeswijk

    Global Head of Organisation Development at Novartis AG

    ---     30th May 2024, Thursday at 9 AM EST/3 PM CET/10pm SGT    ---

    Join us for a conversation delving deeper into the world of applied OD within Novartis. Together with Winnie who built and leads the OD function, we'll demystify what OD means at Novartis: how they define it, how they organise themselves, and the sort of work they do to help bring innovative medicines to patients. Winnie will share a bit about her background and journey as well. We will walk through recent examples of impactful OD work at Novartis. Rather than a singular project, we'll go through "a year in the life" on an important business agenda via a series of OD interventions that enhance Novartis' effectiveness and underpin healthy change. Looking ahead, we'll explore how the focus of Novartis' work is evolving through concepts like the 'networked organization' and application of Gen AI in their business, driving innovation, collaboration, agility and engagement, and where they are increasingly using data to assess organisational health. With lots of opportunity to ask questions and share ideas, we are looking forward to an engaging, informative, and practical conversation.
