Many organizations struggle with complex structures that threaten their existence. Organization design goes beyond hierarchies, spans, layers, and reporting structures. Great organization design is strategic, agile, accountable, continuous, integrated with the business, and promotes clarity, productivity, and growth.
Good design leads to innovation, success, and breakthroughs, while poor design leads to stagnation, conflict, and turnover, hindering organizational growth and success.
This SuperClass offers a valuable opportunity to learn about Organization Design. It involves an immersive simulation centered around a fictional North American pharmaceutical chain called Arrow Care. As a member of Arrow Care's HR team, your role is to transform the company's organization structure. You will identify opportunities to streamline hierarchy, workflows, and procedures to align them with the current business needs.
During the simulation, you will collaborate with internal Arrow Care partners and expert consultants from the Josh Bersin Company to understand the challenges faced by Arrow Care. The objective of the SuperClass is to envision the future of the company, design a solution to work towards that future, and implement the new organization structure. Additionally, you will acquire tools and ideas that can be applied to your everyday work.
