Purpose and aim of unit

Ensuring that an organisation is appropriately designed to deliver organisation objectives in the short and long term is critical to sustainable organisation performance. Driven by organisation business strategy and operating context, organisation design is a conscious process of shaping and aligning the various organisational components: structure, size, systems, processes, people, performance measures, culture and communication.
