This lets you take more informed decisions on participation and the role of your organization in a network.

Program design

The Collaboration in Organizational Networks Master Class gives you the latest scientific knowledge and practical tools for organizational networks. We examine this relatively new organizational form in which organizations create value together. As an organization, when should you join this kind of partnership, and when should you hold off? How do you ensure effectiveness in a network? In this master class, we delve into all facets of collaborative organizations. So your organizational network and your organization can achieve their objectives.

Day 1
What does it look like when organizations collaborate? What different forms does this take? On day 1, you learn when it makes sense to join which form or to initiate a partnership.

Day 2
Value creation is vital to an organizational network. On the second day, we focus on management and governance. How do you work together to ensure the effective and efficient functioning of an organizational network?

Day 3
We zoom in from the organization to the individual level. You learn the roles to be filled in networks and how to go about this. We also set aside time for peer-to-peer coaching around your own behavior, problems or organization.
