Current business realities and change drivers place increasing responsibility on senior management to assess their organisational effectiveness in order to ensure that business goals can be achieved. This entails a regular review of aspects such as culture, structure, roles, processes, systems and procedures and their alignment to the business strategy and goals.
Conducting organisation development (OD) activities in order to achieve organisational effectiveness is a primary role of leaders as well as of those people who support them in these endeavours e.g. managers, change agents, internal and external consultants.
To assist organisations in applying practical and effective OD tools, AstroTech is offering a training programme called Effective Organisation Development.
The course includes the following:
- Foundations of OD and organisational effectiveness
- Change and transition as an integral part of OD
- Driving change and OD activities in the midst of politics, power games and conflict
- The different roles in the OD process and how they complement one another
- Using a typical Business Alignment model to guide your process
- Using a typical organisational improvement process model
- Identifying the needs; the contracting stage
- The assessment stage
- Selection of OD interventions and the planning stage
- The implementation stage
- The evaluation stage
- Practical application of all the above process steps to actual situations which delegates will identify within their own organizations
And much more!
