If you are planning, directing or advising a change in organisation, you will have been frustrated by the lack of rigour and excessive politics in decisions about organisational structures.
The Advanced Organisation Design programme will ease these frustrations. The programme is built round a rigorous framework for making organisation structure decisions and for identifying linking processes, skills and attitudes that are needed to make the design work. This is an opportunity to raise your skills in an area most companies under manage.
The programme gives advanced training to experienced OD specialists, line managers and senior HR professionals. It is particularly suited to HR business partners working closely with a function, division or business unit, especially those who have been on CIPD's 2-day Organisation Design course. It is also suitable for consultants and other professionals whose work involves organisational design.
The course covers the frameworks of organisation design work. Many of these tools are used at more than one point in the design process. Some are only relevant in certain circumstances. In particular the course focuses on:
This is a four day residential course. The tools and frameworks are presented to participants, then used in short exercises some focused on case studies and others focused on current organisation issues facing participants. Larger cases are used to help participants link the tools together. Action learning sessions help to demonstrate how the tools can solve real problems faced by participants.
Syndicate groups are used to help participants share their experiences and support each other as they learn together. Action learning groups help participants develop new perspectives about their own issues.
Each participant leaves with a toolkit and has access to a working website to help him or her after the programme. Faculty members are also available by email, telephone and in person to help participants when they are back at work - firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com.
