A one-day live virtual training course

Course Introduction

Organisation Design for the 4th Industrial Revolution

Whilst many HR functions have recently improved the management and development of their talent, organisation design has often received less attention. Academics including Dave Ulrich and Ed Lawler have suggested that HR may be placing too much emphasis on talent management at the expense of ensuring talent is working in an effective organisation.

Many organisations are now starting to realise that efforts to improve the capability and engagement of their talent will have limited impact unless the organisational context provides talent with the opportunity to contribute towards business objectives and to use their potential.

We will review techniques, tools and experiences for developing appropriate and effective organisation structures, designing business processes, managing culture change and leveraging organisational knowledge, all in order to ensure that organisations give business leaders the best possible opportunity to implement their business strategies and also provide a conducive environment for employees and teams to maximise their contribution.

The course will also consider how each of the areas of organisation design are currently being influenced by changes in the business environment, workforce requirements and other factors and how these are likely to affect organisations in the future.

The training will also showcase case studies and up-to-date thinking from Asia and around the world.

The course now also contains specific focus on organisation design during and beyond the coronavirus pandemic crisis, for example, using teams to provide an emergency response, developing more distributed ways of organising remote workers, and working in cross-organisational ecosystems to develop more innovative responses and opportunities.
