Organisational Design

Short Course

Course Overview

Organisational design aims to identify the optimal form for a group to fulfil its purpose and strategy so it can achieve its intended outcomes. Organisational design is a systematic, strategy-centric and data-driven approach to defining an organisational structure that will achieve role clarity, effective collaboration between roles and teams, and contribute towards a positive organisational culture.

This course provides a conceptual framework for organisational design as well as steps through a methodology that can be applied to large-scale transformation initiatives, all the way through to BAU restructures. It also provides learners with a toolkit with which to approach organisational design initiatives.

This course focuses on the specific challenges faced within the private and public sectors with regards to organisational design and considers how best to navigate fast-changing competitor and stakeholder landscapes/complex policy and reform imperatives to ensure the best organisational design outcomes.
