Designing Fit-For-Purpose organisations for the future

Two-day Online Workshop

Working Together



Two-day workshop
18 and 19 May 2021


The way an organisation is designed has a profound effect, not only on its capacity to perform, but also its ability to:

  • Execute strategy successfully,

  • Create memorable experiences for customers and employees,

  • Effectively deploy and use resources,

  • Implement efficient modes of working,

  • Influence the flow of people energy and positively engage staff,

  • Embed a healthy organisational culture and dynamics

  • Consequently perform effectively,

  • And ultimately to be a successful and viable business.


Your organisation can (and should!) be competing by its design. This workshop will show you how.

A first of its kind in SA, this highly-practical workshop is unique in that it:

  • Seamlessly merges the latest theory and practice of Organisational Design (OD);

  • Presents a comprehensive, integrated, approach to OD and its processes;

  • Offers real case studies to show you how to apply OD pragmatically at work.


After attending, you’ll have a well-grounded, high-level understanding of OD. You’ll get to grips with Organisational Design (OD) as a critical organisational discipline and key executive leadership task. And you’ll also know how to weigh up different Organisational Operating Models - with fit-for-purpose delivery logics – for your own organisation.

Unique value-add!

The workshop is based on the globally, highly acclaimed OD text by the workshop presenter, Theo Veldsman: Designing fit-for-purpose organisations. A comprehensive, integrated route map. The book has been rated independently internationally as the most comprehensive, up-to-date book on organisational design, currently available globally. Participants in the workshop will receive a complimentary e-copy of the book.

Participants will also receive:

A complete workbook, pack of slides for, and a set of case studies for the workshop will be supplied to participants once they have registered for the workshop.



  • Executive and senior line managers who want to get a high-level understanding of OD.

  • HR, Organisational Development and OD Practitioners with at least 5 years of experience from a middle management level up
