Advanced Organization Design

For leaders looking to assess, design and implement organization structures that will deliver their strategy.

Overview

The program provides a toolkit of the most powerful methods and frameworks used in organization design work. Most of the time is spent using the tools on organization challenges: case studies, participant’s own organizations and examples from the faculty. Solutions to these challenges can involve changes to organizational structure, linking processes, job roles, people choices, incentives, decision authorities, accountabilities and other dimensions of an effective organization.

The program is loosely based on the book Designing Effective Organisations by Michael Goold and Andrew Campbell. If you’d like to explore Andrew Campbell’s blog on organisation and operating models please visit here

Who is this for?

For professionals who have a role in organization effectiveness, consultants involved in organization and process design, and leaders at any level who anticipate changing their organization to better align with strategy. As an advanced program we do expect all participants to be actively involved in organization work.
