This course focuses on the important structural and cultural elements of an organisation’s design, when and why the elements might need to be redesigned and how to redesign them effectively
We consider changes at the level of individual jobs through to strategic options such as mergers, downsizing and restructuring.
There is no one perfect design, only an optimal design for each particular time and context. By the end of the course you will be able to:
  • Describe the main features of organisations Assess an organisational design in relation to the strategy and the environment Apply an open-systems perspective to planning for change Identify appropriate interventions Recommend ways to improve the redesign process.
