About the Course

How do you lead your organisation when today’s work environment is so competitive and complex? When you become responsible for leading an organisation, your most important leadership challenge will be enabling your organisation to deliver on its strategy while ensuring it remains sufficiently agile. This course will prepare you to tackle this challenge. You will examine what organisational culture is, the primary organisational structures, and what we mean by ‘systems’, before building on your foundational knowledge and taking a more strategic perspective. The structured learning activities that complement this course (video lectures, quizzes, discussion prompts and written assessments) will not only prepare you to take your organisation forward in a more strategic direction, but to make better decisions along the way....

To be honest, I love this training course!! It brought me many useful skills in management and even gave me chances to practice the knowledge immediately which made me have a clearer vision of what I have just studied. On the other hands, the course also taught me so many new vocabularies that helped me be more confident in my English skills.

Actualmente soy estudiante de una universidad, adicional, trabajo en una aerolínea y tengo un cargo de jefe. Este curso ha descrito todas las problemáticas que pasan en mi empresa y me ha dado las herramientas para poder solucionarlas. Siendo un curso online me ha ayudado muchísimo y estoy pensando seriamente en continuar con estos cursos.

The world is dynamic and changing rapidly. In this time, online learning is particularly important in the event of the Covid19 situation. It is easy to navigate and use over time. I learned new management ideas, especially Leadership, Strategic Human Resources Management, and other concepts that will defiantly help in my future endeavors.

I found it to be a very interesting course because you learn how to organize your company, what strategies you should apply in your organization and above all what roles should be differentiated in each type of worker. Evaluate risks, carry out adequate project management, etc. In short, a well explained and very dynamic course

Fantastic! Really concise and insightful, concepts and course material really well sequenced. Professor Lok is an engaging presenter who uses good examples. Really good practice questions and further resources too.

Only minor gripe, is that some of the 'post in the forum' tasks are a bit lame...but still very much worth it!

Easily the best curriculum I've found in terms of Organisational Design. The thematic areas are all relevant and tangible and can be readily applied to real-life situations and organisations. The course is clearly practical in nature and avoids being relevant only for academic purposes.

Excellent course. Provides basic guidelines on strategically designing organizations and aligning your culture, systems, people, and structure. However, it provides very little material to read after the course. Apart from that, this was an amazing experience.

With this course, I easily identify organizational skills for the company. In order to build an organization, I need to clearly define the structure, the people, and the system. In addition, the lesson helps me to gain insight into how to lead my organization.
