Certified Leadership & Organization Expert

Why is further training in organisational development relevant? The organisational forms of the 20th century often no longer meet the requirements of the 21st century. Useful assistance, which goes beyond general and little founded statements, is so far scarce. With pure soft skills and coaching tools they achieve a maximum of symptom treatment. This is why our courses on organizational design are also about tools based on organizational theory. In the foreground is the concern to understand the economical connections and to be able to arrange actually lastingly. In addition to this improvement in added value, the focus in this further training course on organisational development is on the structural facilitation of an increase in employee satisfaction as well as on methods for efficient reorganisation.

Certified Leadership & Organization Expert

Certified Programme Leadership & Organization

Organisational design is one of the core tasks of management and is thus a classic cross-sectional function. Contrary to the great practical importance, however, reorganisations are often not approached systematically. Additional uncertainty is currently created by the fact that previous best practices in organisational design are being fundamentally questioned. Against this background, the Certified Executive Programme “Certified Organization Design Expert” offers the necessary tools for the management of complex organizations.

My personal motivation for the program? Quite simple: Fascination for the question how numerous people work together and how this can be controlled in a goal-oriented way. There are no simple answers to this. However, at Quadriga University we work together in small learning groups to develop the conceptual essentials for organizational design and leadership, apply important methods and tools, and learn from and with each other in an intensive exchange.
