As a business leader, consultant, analyst, manager or practitioner, you know organizations sometimes need to turn inward, and consider how and why they do what they do.

Perhaps you're at the starting line, with plans for a new business or organization. Or maybe your existing organization is eager to pursue a new direction to adapt for the future. Either way, you see an opportunity to help shape the organization into the best version of itself.

The Organization Design and Development program from Royal Roads University helps professionals working in, or consulting with, organizations in all sectors. In this six-month program, you'll gain the tools and expertise you’ll need to design the kinds of organizations you want to create.
