This course focuses on equipping participants with the most effective tools and techniques for delivering organisational design projects. Design should be strategy-led, but that doesn’t mean that it needs to be overly complex or time consuming. Working within a tried and tested end-to-end framework for delivering organisational design, we will explore various tools and techniques that will help you get your design right and enable you to deliver you organisational design project effectively and efficiently.
This is an advanced course and is aimed at senior professionals. The course will be split into six half-day sessions and will require pre-reading, pre-course work, additional reading and homework during the course and additional reading material and content will also be provided at the end of the course.
This course will provide you with the latest best-practice advanced organisational design tools and techniques and you will have the opportunity to discuss and test various ideas and approaches to establish what you find most helpful and useful. Graham will share his knowledge and vast experience as an organisational design consultant and practitioner and how he has overcome the very many challenges that typically arise in re-design projects. There will also be time set aside on each day for open Question & Answer sessions.
Given the complexity of this topic, pre-reading and additional reading material will be provided before and throughout the course to help equip learners to prepare, understand, reflect, cement and build on their learning. It is important that participants commit to the pre-reading and pre-work and make time to reflect and build on their learning between sessions.
This course will include case study examples from a number of the many organisations that Graham has
worked with and focus specifically on a case study from a large global client that had the most complex
design challenge. Examples include:
- Exploring and agreeing the strategic objectives and priorities
- Developing Design Principles
- Developing Design Options
- Evaluating the Design Options and selecting the optimal design
- Building the new design
- Testing, clarifying, refining and defining the new design
- Strategic resourcing, sizing and cost reduction targets
