Estimated cost: R10 001 – R20 000
Field Of Study: Executive Development
Department Name: USB-ED

Objectives:

The Biomatrix Course on Sustainable Design: Project Design teaches the generic principles of how systems are organised and how these principles need to be applied in order to create and implement a sustainable system design and dissolve complex problems.
Participants learn about the (un)sustainability of systems and the role of limits, structure and stakeholder coproduction in it and develop a (w)holistic worldview, systems thinking skills and creativity in general.
They also learn about the design, development and transformation of systems, especially that of different types of activity systems (e.g. a project, function and industry) and that all activity systems are supply and value chains. Participants apply this knowledge to the design of an activity system, using a project as their case study. In the context of an open course they use a project of their choice, while in an in-house programme the client organisation will prescribe a team project.
Completing the course enables the participant to apply this knowledge to other project designs, as well as to other activity system related change interventions (e.g. function redesign and development).
