Spark meetup 1

It is time for our first spark meetup, how exciting is that! There will be two sessions during this meetup:

Talk #1: Harm Jans is transforming to a network of self-organizing teams based on ‘Spark’, a light-version of Holacracy. In this session Harm will share how he started this transformation and how it is developed since then.

Harm Jans has been working at since 2008 and is a leader in E-commerce logistics and supply chain management. Recently he became the leader of ‘the way of working’ team, focusing on this transformation.
He has a strong vision and a Knack for getting things done. He is a firm believer in a purpose-driven organization where teams and individuals can work together effectively across departments, functions and seniority are empowered to achieve awesome goals.


Talk #2: Koen Veltman

There are a lot of different self-organization models. Koen discusses a few distinct models and brings clarity on this broad topic. With loads of examples on recruitment, budgets, and salaries, he shows how companies apply self-organization in the broadest sense.

Koen Veltman is a true believer in business as a force for good. Koen has ten years of consulting experience (McKinsey & Company, Aberkyn, and SparkOptimus), worked for more than 40 companies, for startups and big multinationals in various industries. Koen’s experience is built on a large variety of projects; from designing and implementing large transformations, organization design, Agile and Lean till leadership development, and culture change management.
