Organization design theory, models, frameworks, and methods are shifting from traditional hierarchies to networks of technology-enabled platforms, flexible team based operating models, new executive team and leadership capabilities, and high-performance work designs.

As our world is changing, many of our current notions about organization design are no longer adaptive or competitive. Rather than focusing on an organization chart or fixed work processes, we need to anticipate that technology will continue to disrupt our world requiring leaders to adapt more quickly. Modular platform socio-technical organization designs that fail fast, learn fast, reconfigure, and scale quickly are emerging as the new building blocks of future-focused organizations. This is a major shift in how people work, executives lead, and in the methods and tools used by organization designers.

Here are some of the topics that you will learn during the Design Lab Session:

  • Understanding the relationship between digital technology and organization design
  • Digital Organization Design – Methodology (methods, tools, and templates)
  • The new emerging role of the organization design practitioner
  • Three Levels of Design: Strategic, Platform/Ecosystem, and Operations
  • Networks, Agile Teams, and Adaptive Work System
  • Design for innovation / start-ups
  • Team Design and augmentation – Work Design
  • Practitioner on-going learning
