Success starts with great content

Organizational structure helps companies be successful.

In fact, an organizational structure determines how we work, how we interact, and how things get done.

We learn to work within these structures. We even choose how to behave within.

Course outline

Below, we break down how you can present the 3 key sections of this training course.

1. Inspire your audience with a practical introduction

Does the idea of starting a course on organizational structure make you worry?

Do you wonder how to start?

Well, training courses on organizational structure are quite specific. They may even sound challenging for some people.

But we’ve learned that the opposite is true.

Organizational structure is something easy to talk about.

So what’s the best way to start a course on organizational structure?

Well, there can be numerous options, but we suggest you start by using the content to:

  • Explore what is an organization.
  • Highlight key concepts and dimensions of organizational structure.

These insights will make the content relevant and will make it easier for you to discuss areas with your audience.

And, this is something we frequently hear from clients with leadership development needs.

2. Zoom in on Mintzberg’s Theory

When you think about introducing theories, start by placing yourself in the shoes of your audience.

Consider how your audience will take to the idea of learning about management theories.

Will it scare them?

It may.

But, there is really nothing to worry about.

Theories have always been discussed. And, it’s critical for your audience to understand fundamental concepts like force and form within organizations.

The good news is the content of the course allows for a practical explanation of these areas.

To illustrate, the biggest piece of evidence to support this is Mintzberg’s Organizational Form Theory and his force and form theory.

This information will make your audience feel more connected. They’ll also generate greater awareness.

3. Focus on models of organizational structure

When you meet the needs of your audience, your courses will always be more engaging.

End the course by using the content to explore the following six models of organizational structure:

  • Bureaucratic.
  • Vertical.
  • Horizontal.
  • Departmentalization.
  • Network.
  • Virtual.

You may want to add industry-specific examples to the content more meaningful to your specific audience.
