Designing the Smarter Organization

Learn a science-based approach to designing and
managing organizations, and see how it's done in real life.

Are you looking for a systems approach to designing and managing your organization, one that's supported by rock-solid evidence? Then consider this one-of-a-kind learning event that gives you a solid grounding in the science and practice of Global Organization Design, also known as Requisite Organization (RO).

Overview

Nearly all organizational dysfunction can be traced to poor structure and unclear accountabilities rather than deficient employees. Fixing dysfunction, therefore, is a matter of fixing the system using science-based, Requisite principles. Requisite Organization (RO) is the only total system model for organization design and managerial leadership.

 

This Global Organization Design Society world conference is the world's only public, professional development program in Requisite accountability and levels-based organization design and management.

 

Learn directly from executives who have successfully applied the principles to re-design their organizations and unleash their organization's potential by developing crystal clear management accountability, aligning compensation and employee capability to job complexity, and ensuring the proper number of organizational layers.

 

This development package promises to have a measurable impact on your organization and your personal effectiveness
