Strategic Organization Design Workshops

"Recognition of real work implications on theoretical models... This was a great course with a great mix of theory and hands on applications. The facilitators shared lots of insights, knowledge and examples."

- 2015 Organization Design Workshop Participant

What does "VUCA" mean? And how does it impact our organizations? "VUCA" (volatile, uncertain, chaotic and ambiguous) has been used to describe the global business environment of recent years requiring organizations to renew their corporate strategy and direction in order to remain relevant and competitive. A priority for leaders today is the knowledge and ability to critically assess their organization’s structure, systems and processes to ensure agility and alignment with changing strategy and business priorities.

This workshop will provide practical organization design models and tools to enable business leaders to review, assess and design their organizations for high performance. This session will engage leaders in a discussion on Organizational Design trends and provide insights into organization design concepts, models and frameworks, taking into consideration the required governance and management practices and the implications for their organization.
