30 June, 28 July and 25 August 12:30-13:10

This session explores how to design the structure of your organisation into functions and roles that fit together logically to help get the best out of your most important asset: your people.

We will explore how best to structure your organisation to get the right people in the right roles so that it fits together in a logical manner that gives clear accountability and responsibility. We'll then go on to examine some of the fundamental things you need to have in place to get the best out of the people in your structure.

Topics and themes include:

• Organisation structure - what it means and how to think about it

• Accountability versus responsibility - making sure that both are clear

• How to set clear expectations and objectives so people know what they are supposed to be doing and why
