Purchase professional development courses

Note:  

Purchasing a course provides permanent access to the course for your exclusive personal learning.

Previously a $99 USD subscription to the site provided a year's access to the first course, Introduction to work levels-based organization design and development.  These subscriptions have been converted to permanent access to that course.

Additional courses are priced separately.

Introduction to work levels-based organization design and management

This course provides an introduction to accountability-based organization design and management -- sometimes called Requisite Organization, Stratified Systems or The Work Levels Approach.  

It is a pre-requisite to attending Society clinics and conferences.  It is strongly recommended before purchasing additional Society on-line courses.  If you purchase this course and later attend a clinic or conference, please let us know and we will give you a $99 USD credit on the price of the event.

The course includes:

  • An overview and introduction
    • An orientation video guiding you to key resources on the Society's web site.
    • Key readings on the approach
    • Videos with CEO and VPHR points of view on the approach.
  • E-learning modules covering the basic concepts of requisite organization.   These were donated by Novus International.
  • Exercises to apply these concepts to your own work experiences.

If your organization wishes to provide this course to a number of its employees, write to [email protected] to make special arrangements at a substantially lower per person cost.

Staff:  Herb Koplowitz, Ph.D., the Society's professional development coordinator introduces the course and is featured in a course video - Frequently Asked Questions.

Price:  $99.00 USD - not currently available as we need to convert the Adobe Flash modules to HTML5

Managerial Leadership Practices - Under construction
 

This is a first cut at a professional development course in RO-based managerial leadership practices.

First materials are from videos of a one-day workshop by that name produced by Nancy Lee, 2009 in Buenos Aires.

As this workshop was recorded in a room that had simultaneous translation, you will hear the muffled sound of voices coming from the translation tents.  Fortunately the staff can be understood without excessive disturbance.
