Building a Better Organization – from Cognitive Science to Practical Applications

MIT Sloan Alumni are invited to join MIT Sloan Distinguished Professor and ShiftGear Work Design Partner and Chief Social Scientist, Nelson Repenning, for a session on how Dynamic Work Design can help transform your organization in 2017.

This event will challenge you to view your organization through a different lens. Work design is not something you often hear or read about in popular business books, and certainly not a topic executives spend time thinking about. Professor Repenning will discuss some of the cognitive science behind good work design and tie it to practical examples.

The principles and methods presented are the result of a 20-year collaboration between Don Kieffer (MIT Senior Lecturer and ShiftGear Managing Partner) and Nelson Repenning. Don would report great results from the field and Nelson would work to explain the success from a theoretical point of view. From this collaboration, ShiftGear’s Dynamic Work Design Principles were born.

After learning the fundamentals of cognitive science and how they can make your work more efficient, engaging, and productive, we’ll leave you with ideas on where to start your transformation. There’s nothing more satisfying than hearing about successful applications of Dynamic Work Design!
