Adizes Practitioners Club operations in Latvia
The Idea of Adizes Practitioners Club in Latvia started to transform into reality around May 2021, suggested by Artjom Fokejev (COO, Polipaks) and inspired by colleagues of Lithuania Adizes Club and Southeast Europe Adizes Club. Talking about what we really want to achieve and what the experience has been elsewhere, we already held the first remote meeting in June, during which Elvis Kvalbergs (CEO, Burti) shared his Burti experience on PIPs, POCs and Synerteam accounting in platforms like Jira and Confluence (recording available on request) – thanks for being the first!
After a year of monthly meetings Wednesday evenings, we started to observe low participation intensity and other PIPs, so we decided to hold a wider Synerteam in July 2022 to identify problems and find solutions. During this meeting, we decided to create a change management council (PVP or POC) and switch to a 3-hour format for the other members in person, which we successfully implemented again at Elvis in August. In addition, following the demand for international experience and an annual event, the POC came to the decision to abandon the monthly format and replace it with longer events once every six months, which was managed to be organized in the first days of December with very good results.
Adizes Practitioners’ Club in Latvia is managed by its Participative Organizational Council (POC) consisting of seven representatives, of which the implementor is Artjom Fokejev (COO, Polipaks), administrator Barba Zeme (CEO, Excellent Latvia) and integrator is Vladimirs Kuzmins (organizational therapist, Adizes Institute). The Council meets regularly to prioritize PIPs and create implementation working groups, in which other members are also involved, guided by necessity and opportunities.
The primary tool for achieving the club’s goals is the field sessions, held twice a year in June and early December, where throughout the day, members generate ideas, find solutions, and share challenges on current topics in a roundtable format. (World Cafe). The synergy of different goals is achieved when the events start in the afternoons of the previous days, i.e. on Thursdays and continuing in the mornings of the following days, i.e. on Saturdays – thus two evenings are available, during which it is possible to gain informal exchange of experience and strengthen contacts.
Actual communication, exchange of experience and mutual interaction among members, etc. takes place in a WhatsApp community format in streams such as – sharing of success/failure experiences, perceived external threats, leadership questions and business or contact exchange. The responsible moderators and senior experts took care of the maintenance and quality of the appropriate information flows.
Current and historical materials, files, etc. can be found on the intranet of the Adize Practitioners’ Club.
