Know Your Organisation - GMBA802

Developing leadership capabilities requires an understanding of the importance of alignment. This includes understanding the degree of alignment between the why, what, how, and when in a business.

We begin each module by covering the foundations, such as discussing what organisational culture is, what the main types of organisation structure are, and what we mean by systems. We build on these foundational concepts by then taking a more strategic perspective across each of these elements. You will learn how to enable an organisation to deliver on its strategic objectives by anchoring it to a focused set of key capabilities. You will learn diagnostic tools that will help you decide whether the current organisation is optimally configured to deliver on these key capabilities. You will also learn how to prioritise specific areas for change. This unit will develop your mastery of strategic thinking with a particular view on what needs to change in an organisation and why. This can act as the starting point for developing a subsequent plan for how to implement the necessary changes.
