In our time together, we will review the essential yet practical elements of Organization Design and its fit with Organization Development. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will also explore its impacts organization design and the future of work, including growth in remote work.

Many HR professionals lump these two together referring to them as OD&D particularly because at some point, Organization Design requires roles and jobs design and assigning people. This is a minor part of organization design work.
