During the day we will be working in four Work spaces focusing on the following Root cells:
Lunch will be served for those attending physically.
With a collective reflection, setting an intention for the next steps, and a check-out the day closes 16.00.
At 18:30 the Pecha Kucha Night starts. PechaKucha is a global storytelling platform that celebrates people, passion, and creative thought. The PechaKucha 20x20 presentation format is a slide show of 20 images, each auto-advancing after 20 seconds. It’s non-stop and you've got 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way. PechaKucha was created in Japan in 2003 by renowned architects, Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham. The word “PechaKucha” is Japanese for “chit chat”.
The Root Cells constitutes the roots and gives support to all other parts of the Emprogage tree. The root area is concerned with ideas and functions that address the structural and cultural development of Emprogage.
The four cell areas of Emprogage – Consulting, Exploration, Development, Root – meet once a year for a tactical meeting, where lessons learned and best practices are shared and where the cells in the area learn together. Each quarter a different cell area meets. All co-creators from the cell area are invited to participate. In that way, the learnings from tactical cell levels are transferred to the operational and strategic levels of Emprogage. Through this integration of learnings, the consciousness of Emprogage expands and evolves through the dialogical learning of Co-creators and results in changes in culture and structure. Put differently, energy flows through the Heartwood of the metaphorical Emprogage tree, where changes in the Backbone (What), DNA (How), Purpose (Purpose) and Soul (Roots) lead to changes in all the other functions. A change in one aspect means a change in the whole and vice versa.
Emprogagers and the Emprogage Environment
An Emprogager is a Co-creator and Owner of the collective Emprogage. As an Emprogager it is important to be able to relate to oneself, in other words, to be conscious of one’s own consciousness, in order to be able to relate to Emprogage and to others. This means to continuously ask oneself the root, why, how, and what questions to develop personal strategies, tactics, and operations. All Emprogagers are self-organised, share the purpose of Emprogage, and work in line with the Organising Principles. Every Emprogager is part of at least one cell of each of the four cell areas, to be able to be whole. Any two Emprogagers have together the authority to sign for the firm.
A Co-creator is a person or entity that creates together with Emprogagers. Usually, Co-creators become part of a cell or are the recipient of design deliveries. A Co-creator can be part of many various organisations, contexts, and functions.
Consultants are persons that have signed a subcontract with Emprogage and are co-creators for a specific assignment or time period. The contract is an enabler of creating together and states services, relations, etc.
LINKS AND CONTACTS
If you are interested in joining the Root Cell Day please get in contact with the Operational Triad of Emprogage.
The Operational Triad is a cell with a specific structure and function to govern the Heart Wood of Emprogage. The operational triad’s main task is to ensure the operational workings of Emprogage as an entity. It can be understood as a support cell for all the other cells. It also exists as the legal stewardship of Emprogage AB.

EMPROGAGE consists of consultants who share the desire to make the world a bit better. Our three words empathy, proactivity, and engagement do not only form the basis of our business philosophy, but also form our name EMPROGAGE. We believe in the power of the individual to make a better world through their conscious decisions. And together we work for what is best for the world. EMPROGAGE is our context and our meeting place. We are creating the future together.
Emprogage was founded at the end of 2018 and is collectively owned by 15 Emprogagers. Emprogage’s way of working is self-organizing and co-creative. At the beginning of 2018 over 40 people were involved in the design of Emprogage. Emprogage is perceived as a web of life – we use the tree as a metaphor. An adaptive and fluid cell structure provides Emprogagers as well as Co-creators the opportunity to engage in projects they perceive as meaningful. The ownership of Emprogage is through the individual companies its members have established themselves. That means Emprogage is at the same time a personal company as well as a collective. The aspect of non-duality is found in many aspects of Emprogage’s way of working, for example in the collective leadership responsibility and decentralized decision-making.
The Emprogagers have experience in facilitation, transformation work, and leadership development and are involved in many co-creations. For an overview of services and currently involved projects visit Emprogage.com.
