Course Description

Organisation Design - 2 day course by CIPD training

In today's competitive scenario advancing technologies, cost pressures, changing customer requirements and different employee expectations are some of the things organisations have to grapple with as they re-organise to meet competitor and market challenges. The Organisation Design course gives participants straightforward frameworks and practical tools to design an effective organisational infrastructure when they are faced with the challenge of reorganising, restructuring, or changing other aspects of their respective organisations.

The programme starts with assessing the work that needs to be done to meet the business purpose and then shows participants how to design an optimal structure. Consideration is given to the factors that are impacting organisation designs and business models including: behavioral economics, social media, community building as the course further moves to mobile, remote, and virtual working, trends in office space design aimed at both saving on real estate and energy costs and improving worker health, productivity, and morale, and the acceleration of new types of technology and the potential this has for disrupting the way individuals do things in organisations.

Organisation Design course can also be run in-house for groups of participants at the client's location where the course content and delivery can be customised as per the specific requirement of the client.
