Certificate Program in Organizational Design

Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California

Organization design is a critical organizational capability in today's dynamic global economy. The Center for Effective Organizations offers a Certificate in Organization Design for those interested in acquiring this important competency. The Certificate Program consists of the following three parts:

Part I: Strategic Organization Design Workshop

The Organization Design Workshop is an overview of foundational organization design frameworks and current organization design approaches. This workshop can be taken as a standalone program, and it is a prerequisite for attending Part II: Advanced Topics in Organization Design. Attendance at any previous offerings of this workshop fulfills the prerequisite. This workshop will introduce participants to the following topics:

  • Strategy to Design
  • Designing the Lateral Organization
  • Organizing Around the Customer
  • Innovation and Agility
  • Designing for Flexibility and Innovation
  • Designing Performance Management Systems
  • Designing Implementation Processes

Part II: Advanced Topics in Organization Design Workshop

This session is open only to individuals who have already attended Part I: Strategic Organization Design Workshop (or other CEO Organization Design Workshop). It entails pre-reading, a project requiring participant design case preparation, and peer and faculty consultation about company projects. This program includes deeper exposure to the following topics:

  • Design Topics
  • Design Processes and Implementation
  • Participant Case Analyses and Peer Consulting

Part III: Organization Design Project

In addition to attending the two workshops (Part I & II), participants are required to complete either a case study of an actual organization redesign, or a diagnosis and proposed new design of an organization in anticipation of future redesign. A standard format will be provided for the project. A draft of this individual or group project must be completed prior to attending the Advanced Topics in Organizational Design Workshop. Coaching and feedback will be available between sessions and during the Advanced Topics workshop. The project must be completed by the end of the calendar year in which Advanced Topics is taken. Note: In order to receive a certificate, all three parts must be completed.
