Language of Instruction:

This four-day program will give you the tools and frameworks you need to assess, design and implement organization structures that will deliver your strategy, whether you are designing a whole organisation or a department within an organization.

The first two days focus on tools, and we explore the theory behind them. The second two days is for practice. You will use tools on case studies and live situations addressing structure, linking processes, role requirements, decision authorities, accountability and other dimensions of effective organization design. This is an opportunity to improve your skills in an area where most companies fall short.

You will learn:

  • The tools you need for organization design work, such as the ‘nine tests of good design’, ‘value chain maps’ and ‘organisation models’, and how to use them
  • The process of organization design – the steps of analysis, who should be involved, how long it should take, how changes should be communicated and your role in the process
  • What methods other participants have used in their organisation design work

You will practice your new skills on:

  • Case studies (consumer products, health care, manufacturing)
  • Live organization issues presented by participants in the room
  • A major reorganisation presented by the chief executive of the company

The program is for:

  • HR professionals who have been involved in at least two reorganisations
  • Consultants involved in organization design and business design
  • Leaders at any level who anticipate changing their organisation

What is unique about this program:

  • The faculty: an academic, a consultant and an executive combine to give you three perspectives on this complex topic
  • The tools: these are practical tools that have been used in hundreds of assignments by consultants and executives
  • The focus on practice: you will be working on real problems from real organisations, including your own
