As technological, geopolitical and social forces increase the complexity of doing business, the need to design organisations that enable people to make faster and better decisions becomes ever more pressing. Organisations must manage a core tension between being agile and responsive to customer needs while achieving economies of scale, all in an increasingly virtual and digitally enabled environment.

This masterclass, led by global organisation design expert Amy Kates, will outline the key issues and essential frameworks and tools, enabling attendees to apply them in their organisation. Using real-life cases to illustrate the decisions that organisations have taken in response to their business challenges, Amy will take us through an interactive session that explores the latest thinking in organisation design.

The event will be accompanied by a CRF Research Report.

Learning Objectives:

  • Deepen your understanding and ability to apply the latest organisation design models and frameworks.
  • Explore how to design for organisation agility and to balance economies of scale and customer responsiveness.
  • Gain insight from experts and peers on how to tackle the organisation design challenges of your business.
