Training Description

With many markets in the region gearing up for continued post-recession business growth and responding to a difficult and changing external environment, it is more important than ever that your organisational design helps your business to deliver on its strategic priorities. Strategic organisational design is focused on aligning your organisation’s structure; roles and responsibilities; Key Performance Indicators; governance arrangements; policies, processes and procedures; and infrastructure with your strategic objectives and plans. Organisational redesign is a big undertaking and poses significant risk to your organisation: not only must you get the design right, but you also need to bring clarity to your new design – or risk ambiguity, confusion, frustration and ineffective teamworking and decision making.

This masterclass will provide an overview of the latest thinking on organisational design and the key phases and steps needed to effectively deliver an organisational design project. This course will focus on the latest advanced best-practice tools and techniques for managing a strategic redesign.

Emphasis will be given to the Assessment and Design phases. Understanding what you require from your new design and how to get your design principles and evaluation criteria right. And show you how to make sure you choose the optimal design for your organisation and how to build, test, clarify, refine and define your new design.

Finally, this course will cover the Construct, Implement, Operate & Review phases and the key steps and tools needed to deliver and embed your new design and its expected benefits. This course will be highly interactive with plenary and group discussions and exercises; and time set aside for Questions & Answers and review to help you achieve your learning objectives.

  1. Get the timing right.
    Many people are afraid to request for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for it, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, he/she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture.
  2. Make a case for yourself
    When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details and explanations about what is in it for the company and you’re superior. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points:
    1. Start by stating your accomplishments
    2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn
    3. Describe:
    a) How this event will increase your productivity?
    b) How you will need less supervision
    c) How you can bring back the knowledge to the company
    4. Follow up
You might find free to attend events which are usually organized by a solution/service provider within the industry. Unlike at free to attend events, on a paid event you will find more diverse industry knowledge rather than presentations related to services or solutions.
In case you cannot attend for both days, you can always attend for just 1 day of the event. In this case we will send you all presentations of the 2 days. The participation fee is 70% of the original investment. In case you would like to attend the event for just 1 day please contact us on booking[at]glceurope.com
In case you are busy on 1 of the days, you certainly can split the 2 day conference with one of your colleague. All you need to do is send us an e-mail to booking[at]glceurope.com
We understand that not all senior-level professionals might be available on the dates. As the event is an annual event, most of the attendees try to postpone their engagements or send a small group from their teams to benefit from the conference.
