The accelerating rate of change in the business world often places a demand on every senior executive leader to continually reinvent its adaptive mechanism. One of such tools is the organizational design. Although an effective organization design helps a firm to respond more appropriately to changes in the external environment, many senior executive leaders struggle in this vital leadership function. Consequently, many organizations have remained trapped in their old and ineffective ways of organizing their people, business, and structure.
Organizational Design explores a more structured and practical approach to organizing. It examines the principles of good design, design process, concepts of misfit, fit drivers, and testing of fit in organization design. Thus, the goal of this course is to equip senior executive leaders with the competencies to assess, design, and implement organizational forms and structures that will position the organization for current and future competitiveness.
