Transforming the Organisation

Day One

 

While many HR functions have recently improved the management and development of their talent, organisation design has often received less attention. Academics including Dave Ulrich and Ed Lawler have recently suggested that HR may be placing too much emphasis on talent management at the expense ensuring talent is working in an effective organisation.

Many organisations are now starting to realise that efforts to improve the capability and engagement of their talent will have limited impact unless the organisational context provides talent with the opportunity to contribute towards business objectives and to use their potential.

We will review techniques, tools and experiences for:

  • developing appropriate and effective organisation structures,
  • designing business processes,
  • managing culture change
  • and leveraging organisational knowledge...

... all in order to ensure that organisations give business leaders the best possible opportunity to implement their business strategies and also provide a conducive environment for employees and teams to maximise their contribution.

The workshop will also consider how each of the areas of organisation design are currently being influenced by changes in the business environment, workforce requirements and other factors and how these are likely to affect organisations in the future.

Day Two

 

Many organisations are struggling to deal with deep, systemic issues that stop people from working effectively – individually and together. Typical issues for many organisations include improving performance rather than just optimising their performance management process; increasing passion and pride rather than just superficial engagement and ensuring that teams are working together internally and collaborating effectively with other teams. All of these and other issues require sound organisation development approaches for them to be resolved.

We will review techniques, tools and experiences for:

  • developing appropriate and effective organisational environments,
  • creating dynamic teams
  • and enabling social networks as well as managing culture change...

... all in order to ensure that organisations give business leaders the best possible opportunity to implement their business strategies and also provide a conducive environment for employees and teams to maximise their contribution.
