Dynamic Organisation Design for Process Alignment and Higher Performance

Organisations face recurring and continuous change, and in order to maintain or increase productivity, performance and profit, they need to effectively respond to these challenges. The problem lies in knowing what needs to change, how to change it and when is the best time for change.

What is organisational design? Organisational Design is the process of aligning the structure, workflows and resources of an organisation with its objectives in order to improve efficiency and effectiveness. The need for Organisational Design can come from mergers, new products or services, changes to the strategy, cost reduction initiatives and broad change initiatives.

This Organisation Design for Today’s World course will help learners to understand how to develop and redefine their organisation’s structure and design, to enhance business performance. Learners will be equipped with the tools they need to lead and deliver change despite the disrupted and uncertain business landscape. This course will also distinguish the difference between organisational design and development, as well as the difference between organisational structure and design.

In this two-day organisation design training programme, participants will work with a variety of case studies, tools, frameworks and models to learn the principles and application of Organisational Design.
