I would like to move into organisational design/ management development. Ihave a Masters in business and two-and-a-half years experience in businessdevelopment. Organisational behaviour is what I am interested in. How should Igo about this? Doug Knott, senior consultant, Chiumento Your desire to move into organisation design/management developmentrepresents a significant change from your previous career. This could well besomething of a leap in the dark and you should consider further research via networkingbefore finally deciding to pursue this option.
