Optimising Performance through Organisation Design
7 April @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£399
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 recently suggested that HR may be placing too much emphasis on talent management at the expense 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 tools and techniques 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 workshop 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.
Who Should Attend?
- VPs, Directors and managers of HR, Learning, and Organisation Design
- HR business partners and other HR staff wanting to contribute more broadly to organisational effectiveness
- Business leaders with responsibility for the effectiveness of their own organisations
By the end of the course you will:

Choosing and Implementing Your OD
This training day will run from 10:00-16:00 with three scheduled breaks throughout the day
