Seeing and Thinking Design, 2nd of March 2017, EdinburghEventsUnited Kingdom

Organisation design is increasingly important, with leaders increasingly needing to consider the best shape to deliver the organisations strategic intent today while exploring new models and ideas that will reshape the organisation tomorrow. Getting your organisation design wrong can lead to a “bewildering morass of contradictions”.
– HBR, 2011


Content Overview

“my perspective has been expanded”, “affirmed and energised”, “wider understanding of the key contributors, theories, models”, “my beliefs are not the same as earlier. I got the whole picture, it was interesting for me to see it from a strategic point of view”

masterclass-collageIn this introductory masterclass, we explore the relationship between the individual designer and organisation design.
We will talk about different frameworks and models, as a way to explore what designing organisations means to each of us, in a very personal and hopefully fun way.

Our hope is to:
o Place organisation design in the broader movement of design thinking
o Discuss and discover different models, foundational approaches as well as contemporary trends/hypes
o Explore what designing organisations means to each of us and our experiences
o Apply organisation design to practical case studies
o Explore the enablers and inhibitors to successful organisation design.

Those who will benefit include: HR professionals, Change managers, Organisation Managers, Organisation Development practitioners, New to the field Organisation design practitioners, Organisation design practitioners, etc..
