L&D: Tuesday L&D Processes Audit 39: T&D Organization Structural Design Process

T&D Process 10.6: T&D Organization Structural Design Process

Note: In my 2001 book I continued my decades old name for the profession as T&D – Training & Development.

Convert for your use as necessary. I will use both T&D and L&D in this weekly series for 2018.


Not all loose processes need to be tightened up.

You should only do that Investment if the Returns warrant.


Learning By Design vs Learning By Chance

When the Cost of Non-Conformance of poor Process/people Performance warrants the Investment in T&D/ Learning/Knowledge Management Content – then make those investments.

And – just because an L&D profession can determine a valid Learning Need and gap in Content – does not in and of itself warrant meeting that need – in any manner.

Overview of the Big Picture



T&D Process 10.6: T&D Organization Structural Design Process

Process Purpose

The T&D Organization Structural Design Process designs the organization (the form and structure) based on the T&D leadership, core, and support processes in place and the systems, tools, and methods required to render the T&D services and provide the T&D products that have high-payback to the enterprise in terms of their return on investment or economic value add.


Process Description

The T&D Organization Structural Design Process designs the organization and jobs required to carry out the work of the T&D system, as articulated in the T&D systems and processes specifics. Form should follow function.

Many T&D organization designs and the job designs within have evolved over time and were not necessarily designed to meet all of today’s current requirements. They need to be re-engineered from a process performance perspective.
