THE CONFERENCE MODEL
The Conference Model was the original methodology to engage large numbers of people in system-wide change through a series of integrated conferences and "walkthrus." The model consists of three elements:
- A series of integrated conferences
- The walkthru process
- Simple commitments
Conferences create an open exchange of information, increased understanding of the system under consideration, new agreements and actions, and enhanced relationships among participants.
Conference Model applications include redesigning processes, creating organizational futures, developing new organizational cultures, integrating organizational units/processes, creating self-directed work teams, improving union/management cooperation, and creating organizational alignment with new strategic directions.
