Building Blocks for Organizational Development

Mini-masterclass on organization design, modeling and development

Strategy. Structure. Culture. It’s a no brainer that these three components have to coact and make an organization thrive. So why does it seem like they are constantly bothering and even counteracting each other? In our opinion it is because all 3 are massive forces in any organization, and mastering them requires apt mindset, skills and instruments. That is exactly what this mini-masterclass on OD (organizational development) is about.

Why business leaders and strategic advisors don't want to miss this:

  • You will return to your organization with a carefully selected set of topnotch insights and tools allowing you to map and align your current culture, strategy and structural efforts. We give them to you because we know they actually work!
  • You will actively practice tools and methods allowing more and more to see and cope with the wider complexity of organizational development. Okay, in one day you cannot master them all at once but we do promise you a serious head start when returning to your own organization.
  • You will connect and experience the pains and gains in other participants OD cases. Feedback and feedforward from peers will broaden your business perspective, your strategic positioning, and your view on organizational readiness.

For several years now Beanmachine has been supporting clients on organizational development. The best of all these practices are now compliled in one groundbreaking training day. Take a deep breath though, as this will be a high energetic mastering of building blocks to really get you do things differently!
