The upcoming Organization online course helps build knowledge and understanding of critical features in the organizational design of tax administrations. It introduces the general principles and good practice of organizational design, and discusses the organizational structures adopted by tax administrations (such as function-based, taxpayer segment-b ased, tax type-based and hybrid models). It also discusses how tax administration organizational design is adapting to respond to government requests to take on other responsibilities in addition to tax-related functions as well as to emerging trends such as new disruptive technologies.
