Ed used stories from his own life to illustrate how OD could address VUCA challenges for organizations and a potential educational vision for China and the world.

Imagine a future where educational institutions, employers and individuals work together in a radical new way, without traditional walls or boundaries. A future where we collaborate for organization development and change so everybody, from the C-Suite to middle management and frontline staff, can contribute value in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

想象一下,未来教育机构、雇主和个人以一种全新的方式在一起工作,没有传统的墙壁和界限。一个我们为组织发展和变革进行协作,从C开头的最高管理层到中层经理和一线员工,每个人都能在第四次工业革命中共享价值。

- Ed Kang

One major point Ed emphasized was the potential competitive advantage of empathy for OD in China. He challenged the conference audience to consider empathy as a way to accelerate the necessary competencies for OD.
