About

In this Designing the Organization - From Strategy to Organizational Structure offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign you will understand how firms are organized, what factors must be taken into account in making critical design decisions, and what role managers play in making these choices. 

In order to answer these questions, we will first develop a conceptual process model that links business models, external and internal contingencies, and organizational design. Second, we will focus on the fundamental principles of organization design and what alternative design choices are available for managers. 

Finally, we will apply these concepts and ideas to organizational situations to develop the critical insights and decision making skills to build effective organizations. 

 Learners:

  • Will understand how managers create value through their organizations
  • Will have a good understanding of the fundamental principles and factors important to organizational design 
  • Will be able to design the coordination, control, and performance measurement systems to manage an organization.
