People Lessons from a Pop Up Organisation with Rob Jones

4th February 2016, 4:30PM-6:30PM, IMI Conference Centre, Dublin 16
Rob Jones is Head of Organisational Effectiveness at Crossrail, the £15bn programme to deliver a new railway for London.
Described as a values-led ‘pop-up’ organisation, it is interesting because it involves many different organisations, across several industries, all collaborating under the one umbrella. With 14,000 people, most not directly employed, the challenge to create an integrated team is massive and involves not only aligning the culture, but also a complex supporting framework.
