  • Understand modern organizational life and its dynamics better;
  • Acquire new skills when working with complex, changing systems;
  • Create new methods and approaches in consulting work;
  • Contribute practitioner input for future research agendas;
  • Network with other practitioners and discuss new ways and methods.
