An Immersive Experience

We consider experience design an essential element of how groups come together and interact. This year, we’re excited to host our conference at Zappos Headquarters in  Downtown Las Vegas.

Zappos is a 20 year old company that has experimented with a wide range of alternative ways of working throughout their history. (Most publicly, you may have heard of their experimentations with Holacracy. And we are pleased to have the founder of Holacracy, Brian Robertson, onstage this year!)

Zappos strives to be like a city, where decentralized decision makers are united by common values. Join us, at this year’s exceptional venue, for an immersive and compelling experience!

 
 
 
 
 

Interactive Art Throughout

In addition to a carefully-curated conference agenda, we’ve also crafted an interactive artistic experience that is embedded throughout the conference. We’ve selected works from artists who create in a space parallel to the Future of Work, and are also attempting to bring equitable attention to contemporary issues.

Each of the artists we chose is committed to questioning the ways in which we as a society choose to participate and engage—in our cities, workplaces, relationships, and culture. These exhibits and performances critique while balancing a great deal of care and generosity inside of this commentary.

In the work of the artists invited to present at Responsive, conference participants can expect to see the ways experimentalism and risk can live alongside structure and networks. These performers embody this practice, both literally and figuratively. They show us that while we live in a society plagued by separation and partisan appeals, being responsive and open can provide new avenues for us to join together for common causes.

Taking Place at Zappos

Zappos

 

Zappos is a 20 year old company that has experimented with a wide range of alternative ways of working throughout their history. Most publicly, you may have heard of their experimentations with Holacracy. (And we are pleased to have Brian Robertson, the founder of Holacracy onstage this year!)

Less well known is the fact that Holacacy was neither the beginning nor the end of Zappos’ experimentation, and they will be sharing their latest practices with “Market-Based Dynamics” onstage.

In a Market-Based Dynamics approach to business, each department within the organization functions as its own, separate, small business. Rather than given a budget from on high, dictated by precedent or politics, every business unit earns its budget through selling services to internal (or external) customers. While Zappos has just begun to practice this approach company-wide in the last 2 years, the aim is to make each business unit increasingly self-managed and sustainable allowing employees greater personal and professional autonomy and encouraging experimentation.

Zappos strives to be like a city, where decentralized decision makers are united by common values.

Downtown Las Vegas

 

Zappos CEO, Tony Hsieh, has taken a personal, as well as a professional, interest in the urban area and is contributing $350 million of his personal wealth toward a multifaceted revitalization effort called the Downtown Project.

Through a variety of revitalization projects, Tony Hsieh, in partnership with the city of Las Vegas, have begun major renovations of several downtown locations, including resorts, night life, and a variety of community venues.

It is a fascinating fact that as a city grows in population, productivity increases, but as a company grows in size, productivity decreases. Through our curation and making use of venues throughout Downtown Las Vegas, we are excited to explore this interesting characteristic of cities at Responsive Conference 2019.
