Ultimate List of Organizational Design Resources | How to enable Adaptiveness
Updated: Nov 3, 2020
Here I share a list of resources that have helped in my journey to uncover better approaches to organisation design. In particular, how design can help increase an organisations disposition towards adaptiveness (aka agility).
The resources have been broken down by Category. Each category asks a big question you will likely need to answer during your Organizational Design efforts. For each question is a list of resources which have helped me answer the same question.
It is my hope that these resources will help new and experienced Organisational Design Professionals uncover new ways to enable adaptiveness.
