The Organizational Design Community  Course Accreditation

To be Organizational Design Community Certified confirms that an institution’s organization design program has been carefully assessed and that its quality meets ODC’s comprehensive, global requirements for accreditation.

The ODC Course Accreditation establishes that a course or program covers a core set of fundamental common content (knowledge, skills, tools, methods, frameworks, trends, etc.) in organization design. Once endorsed, the course provider can market and advertise it as such. (Co-branded with ODC and the Course Provider).

Providers of a certified course will be able to provide their participants with a certificate of successful completion (co-branded with ODC).

The endorsement program is developed jointly by academics and practitioners from a comprehensive analysis of the organization design literature as well as from field experience. 

The ODC accreditation program adds value to both course participants and providers by:

  • Helping potential course participants navigate in a fragmented market of course providers
  • Certifying that participants received a theoretically sound and practically useful course
  • Helping course providers develop and differentiate their offerings

Application: Contact the ODC Principal Office via e-mail. The ODC Principal Office sends application instructions to the course provider. 

Each application is reviewed by a five member Review Board and an Awarding Body. The applicant receives a decision from ODC within two months. 

Information about the specific criteria for certification, application process, prices etc. are available in the Accreditation Handbook. Please contact the Principal Office via e-mail:
