Designing fit-for-purpose organisations for the emerging, new world

Organisational design as the Operating Model for the organisation is one of the key executive leadership tasks making up the portfolio of Executive Tasks in the organisation. Organisational design can only be ignored at the peril of the effectiveness and efficiency of the organisation. One can indeed compete by design.

The purpose of the workshop is to enable participants to gain a high-level insight into organisational design as a key executive leadership task - the what, why, how, who, whereto of design – against the backdrop of the emerging, new world.

The workshop is aimed at persons with at least 5 years of organisational experience, and who are doing/ wishing to do organisational design work. Or, is at present in a senior upwards management position.



The following topics will be covered during the workshop, and illustrated through case studies:
  • Why has organisational design become critical in the emerging, new world?
  • Defining organisational design with its associated vocabulary and language
  • Mapping the organisation al design landscape: its building blocks
  • High level exploration of strategic, tactical and operational design
  • Imagining the organisation of the future

SETA grants and accreditation requirements

Many of our delegates enquire about the accreditation of our events. There is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes.
