Organization Design


Gives legs to strategy – people, design, innovation

technology, and analytics


The Global Organization Design Society is a world-wide professional association.  Its purpose:


To support the organising of work in a responsible, fair and healthy manner in which people are well led and free to exercise their capabilities. The Society believes that this requires applying a whole systems framework*, emerging from reflective inquiry, in which levels of work and individual

 capability is the initial paradigm. Growth in awareness is the essential process combined with the development of a trusting relationship.

 The benefits are organisational effectiveness, fulfilled people and organisations designed for value creation, sustainability and social well-being.


Inspired by the work of Wilfred Brown and Elliott Jaques
