To remain competitive your organisation needs to adapt in a rapidly changing environment. Based on Tricordant’s leadership in the field, Adaptive Design – Thriving in Uncertainty is a course which enables your people to reorganise the way they work and the organisation to rapidly adapt. Through the course participants will:
- Increase their capability, credibility and confidence
- Learn a proven approach and effective tools
- Gain greater influence with leaders
- Develop a roadmap for your business
- Develop their own learning journey
- Receive up to 6hrs of mentoring support for a project of your choice
After experiencing the importance of systems thinking the agenda will follow the above road map for designing organisations. Using role play and case studies, we will apply a range of best practice tools and approaches to explore the project initiation and diagnosis stages. We will use Mural, an online collaborative whiteboard, to explore the strategic environment and how to create a set of design criteria to deliver an organisation which is able to adapt and remain relevant in a complex changing environment. As part of this we will explore the principles behind the emerging organisational models such as agile organisation, networked, Haier, Holacracy, Sociocracy 3.0 “Peach Model”, Spotify Model, LiquidO and how these may be adopted.
Using case studies we will dive into the nitty-gritty of organisation design both from the human system perspective and from the role of the organisation designer. Through the case studies and participants’ own experiences we will explore the design and implementation stages. We will apply best practice tools and approaches intentionally organising around value, considering this from a top down operating model perspective and a process driven, bottom up perspective. We will explore integrating mechanisms to ensure a learning, adaptive and agile organisation is delivered.
This phase will complete the implementation stage looking at spans of control, role profile design etc. The participants will then explore the evaluation stage using tools such as 12 Tests of Whole and Healthy Organisation Design before moving into small groups to co-consulting on prior, current or planned projects. During this phase your people will develop a roadmap for your organisation and identify how each participant will continue their learning journey to ensure ongoing business impact. This may include reflection on the development of internal consulting skills and topics such as ‘use of self.’
