About the book

The Organisation Design and Capability Building toolkit is an out-of-the-box solution for HR professionals seeking expert knowledge on how to create and manage an organisation design (OD) and capability building process from start to finish. The toolkit includes checklists and other resources to help build a compelling business case to secure buy-in from stakeholders, develop a roadmap, identify roles and actions that add value to the OD process, assess the organisation, design the organisation, implement the design and then evaluate it.

Complete with multiple perspectives and a variety of tried-and-tested techniques that organisations can adopt right away, Organisation Design and Capability Building helps HR teams focus on the most important activities for their organisation, reducing the need for external consultants and additional costs.
