Learn How to Restructure and Improve the Performance of Your Organisation by Taking a Whole-of-Business Approach to Change. Develop associated plans to support the design and implementation of a new structure and the programs  required to maximise improvements across organisational business systems, people and culture.

Restructuring organisations is a process of design and change.

It’s about taking a whole-of-business approach to change and developing associated plans and design principles to support the implementation of a new organisation structure and the programs required to maximise improvements across business systems and people and culture work practices.

This approach is centred around the belief that people and organisational culture have a profound impact on the success of organisations. A well designed organisation is not simply about the way an organisation’s structures.

A well designed organisation is about achieving organisational strategy by establishing clarity of purpose and aligning strategic outcomes with well-designed and defined roles and responsibilities and the establishment of necessary enablers for high performance, such as breaking down silos across teams and work groups, improving workflow, delegations, processes and procedures and systems (performance management systems, learning and development, reward and recognition, information technology, talent recruitment and selection), for people and teams to efficiently and effectively undertake their role – which ultimately leads to greater engagement and performance.

We start with the strategic outcomes of any business and design plans and programs to maximise improvements to ensure every possible opportunity is identified for the successful attainment of strategic outcomes.

If existing jobs need to be redesigned or divisional functions are not aligned to strategy or perhaps behaviours are getting in the way and changes to leadership and culture are required. Additionally, you may have outdated people and culture work practices that are preventing the organisation and it’s people from achieving full potential – then attending this intensive 2 day training program, delegates attending this program will be able to develop an informed approach to organisation design and implement changes within their organisation to improve people and culture work practices.
