Advanced Topics in Organization Design (TENTATIVE DATES)

October 20 - October 22

Deepen your understanding and sharpen your skills

Our Advanced Topics in Organization Design Workshop is a practicum-based course in which participants receive coaching while working through a real design challenge, and learn from each other as the projects are shared and discussed during the workshop. Participants who attend both workshops and successfully complete a design project receive a Certificate in Organization Design. The organization design program has attracted an international group of companies from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America.

The Advanced Topics workshop entails pre-reading, a project requiring participant design case preparation, and peer and faculty consultation about company projects.

Attendees might include:

  • Human Resource Professionals

  • Line Managers and Design Teams

  • Internal Corporate Consultants

  • Organization Development Professionals
