Organization Design Architect - Exclusive for Real Hands-on

Organization Design Architect: Workshop Overview

Business leaders have learned that making well considered decisions regarding the configuration of resources yields competitive advantage. They are turning to their human resource functions to provide them with organization design frameworks and tools, and to guide them through the process of involvement, decision‐making, and implementation. Organization design is rapidly becoming a core and expected offering for HR. In order to deliver this sophisticated work effectively, the function needs a common methodology and toolkit that is shared by skilled business partners in the field and specialists in the center, working together to deliver high value decision support. Organization Design: An Essential HR Capability provides a foundation in conceptual frameworks, analytical tools, and consulting skills in a highly practical and application‐based three‐day program.
