Are you interested in how organizations can be designed in a way that operate efficiently?

The real objective of organisational development (OD) is to improve how an organisation functions through theory and practice. The danger with this is that traditional managers continue to operate within the old paradigm that seeks to optimise organisational effectiveness.

This can only change when today’s business challenges are aligned, so the specialided knowledge and skills from OD will help to position the importance and contribution of design to your business, developing a mindset to achieve long-term success and viability.

This course will help you understand what is needed to deliver (new) OD well, understanding the skills, knowledge and behaviours that support OD practice, preparing systems and processes for change, improving credibility, personal effectiveness and development planning. You will explore the possibilities of organisational design and development (ODD) and the barriers that may arise upon implementing its techniques and tools.

This will enable you to understand the context in which organizations operate and the role practitioners may play in supporting the alignment to organizational structure, design, culture, and change.

After taking this course, you will be able to:

  • Look at what employees, organizations and practitioners needs from OD in today’s world.
  • Define ODD, the aims, process, history and philosophy.
  • Understand the nature of organizational development within the context or leadership and change.

  • Understand organisational change processes from an OD perspective; methods and techniques.
