Organisation Design by Graham Dalton

About the training

#HR   #Organisation

With many markets in the region gearing up for continued post-recession business growth and responding to a difficult and changing external environment, it is more important than ever that your organisational design helps your business to deliver on its strategic priorities. Strategic organisational design is focused on aligning your organisation’s structure; roles and responsibilities; Key Performance Indicators; governance arrangements; policies, processes and procedures; and infrastructure with your strategic objectives and plans. Organisational redesign is a big undertaking and poses significant risk to your organisation: not only must you get the design right, but you also need to bring clarity to your new design – or risk ambiguity, confusion, frustration and ineffective teamworking and decision making. This masterclass will provide an overview of the latest thinking on organisational design and the key phases and steps needed to effectively deliver an organisational design project. This course will focus on the latest advanced best-practice tools and techniques for managing a strategic redesign. Emphasis will be given to the Assessment and Design phases. Understanding what you require from your new design and how to get your design principles and evaluation criteria right. And show you how to make sure you choose the optimal design for your organisation and how to build, test, clarify, refine and define your new design. Finally, this course will cover the Construct, Implement, Operate & Review phases and the key steps and tools needed to deliver and embed your new design and its expected benefits. This course will be highly interactive with plenary and group discussions and exercises; and time set aside for Questions & Answers and review to help you achieve your learning objectives.
