Transcendence is an annual, international conference on organisation development (OD), change and leadership organised by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).

The conference serves to exchange knowledge and create connections between industry leaders, practitioners and researchers. Our primary purpose is to promote and develop OD as a scientific discipline that makes a tangible difference to organisations and the world.

If your work involves strategy, change management, entrepreneurship, human resources, innovation, learning & leadership development — or any aspect of OD — then this conference would be valuable to you and your organisation.

Theme & Tracks

The Future of Work and Organisation Development

The  topic of the Future of Work and the discipline of Organisation Development (OD) are inter-related for three crucial reasons. First, organisations have become a dominant feature of our world. Never before have as many people spent as much of their lives working in organisations as today.

Second, we are seeing dramatic changes in how work is being done across sectors including manufacturing, farming, infrastructure and services. In particular, work undertaken by humans is speedily moving to technology. It is not only jobs involving routine operations that are being digitised, but also jobs that deliver complex analyses and decision making. The dawn of the present era of cyber-physical systems is heralded by connectivity between machines, developments in computational semantics & natural language processing, and advancements in data sciences


All sessions at Transcendence 2019 are being designed along six tracks or focus areas:

  • Defining the Discipline of OD
  • The Formless Organisation and New Organisational Forms
  • Technology and Structures in Organisational Performance
  • Redefining Business: Responsibilities and Performance
  • Democratised Organisations: Impossible or Inevitable
  • Change Management and Leadership for the Future

Conference Objectives

To outline the changing paradigms of business across the world with focus on Asia. To demonstrate the value of OD to these new paradigms of work and business.

To take stock of approaches to OD, definitions, interventions and their successes and failures. To consolidate and share knowledge by initiating the documentation of OD experiences and research in Asia.

To formulate the innovations required in approaches and interventions in OD including the work that needs to be done to develop OD facilitators. To impress CEOs and CXOs about the use of OD for the future.
