A New Era of Cross-Boundary Collaboration

February 21-22, 2024 | Garching near Munich/Germany

It was truly heartwarming to see the enthusiastic responses we received from so many companies after sharing the news that ECLF is returning to its roots. We very much look forward to rejuvenating this unique community with an even stronger focus on how to best shape 21st century leadership, organization, and learning in ever faster changing environments – and collaboratively work on the capabilities needed in this context.

To kick off our re-launch, we cordially invite current and former members as well as interested guests to join us for an in-person meeting which will allow us to reconnect, identify key topics we want to address in 2024, and explore opportunities for joint initiatives along these lines.

We are excited and grateful that UnternehmerTUM, one of the world’s largest hubs for business creation and entrepreneurship, has partnered with us to host this event. It will allow us to experience first-hand a unique learning and innovation ecosystem.

ECLF Over the Years

We documented the history of ECLF with two unique books that feature 15 years of in-depth dialogues among senior L&D leaders of some of the world’s largest organizations.

“A rare collection of insights from thought and practice leaders which will appeal to everybody interested in the development dynamics of large organizations; it is especially valuable for executives, managers, and consultants whose practices focus on strategy, organization, leadership, change management, and strategic innovation.”

How do you design business processes as learning opportunities? How do you enable a ubiquitous learning culture? How do you support strategic and organizational change and act as an engine for transformation and innovation?  What capabilities, mindset, processes, and roles are required for this, and what is the appropriate operating model? What does this mean for the positioning of L&D in the overall stakeholder universe? What does it mean for the identity of the function?

Shaping the Future of Transformational Learning celebrates ECLF’s 15-year anniversary by sharing detailed summaries from seven events of ECLF. The book also includes eleven mini-case studies from members, featuring practices and strategic initiatives from companies such as Airbus, The Bank of Russia, Bertelsmann, Cisco Systems, Daimler, Deutsche Bahn, ENI, Fiat Chrysler (now Stellantis), Siemens, and more

Transformers features the essence of ECLF conversations over ten years. It combines contributions from renowned thought leaders with perspectives and experiences from dozens of global corporations, among them GE, L’Oreal, Ericsson, Fiat-Chrysler, Cisco, Allianz, Airbus, Siemens, Santander, UBS and many more – close to 100 summaries of speeches, discussions, case studies, and research results, including a synthesis of insights from a Silicon Valley visit that 20 members of the Forum undertook in 2011 – history!

Browsing through Transformers is an inspiring experience – not only because of its rich and diverse content, but also because of its unique creative design.
