Structuring Functional Organizational Design

Structuring Functional Organizational Design

We function within unique ecosystems of organizations – from where we work, shop, go to school, volunteer, acquire healthcare, and manage our personal and professional lives. We are oblivious to how organizations have evolved over time. Yet, how organizations are structured and how successful they are in adapting to change has a significant impact on the organizational health of the enterprise, and on the people within it. Thus, it is important for you to become mindful of the ways that these organizations are structured or may be restructured to become more agile and successful amid changes in the industry, society, and the environment. The choices behind these structures are fundamental for organizational design.

From an organizational design perspective, acquiring analytical skills to investigate why some organizations are more successful than others is required. This will allow you to predict upcoming changes that may require redesigning in accordance with organizational design variables.

Different organizational design professionals use different models to assess organizations. This course uses the Congruence Model for you to apply in assessing whether an organization is well designed. You will also determine how organizations identify their key components and examine these components to understand how they are related. Finally, you must carefully assess and establish if the organization would benefit from a redesign.
