    To 'establish' organisation?

    Hi,

    May I, please, have a few common verbs that go with 'organisation' in its uncountable meaning?

    You can do a lot of things with organisation. You can facilitate it, hinder it, side-track, postpone, delegate, defer... What are you thinking of doing with it?

    As an NES but not a teacher, I might "establish an effective organisation", but that makes it countable.

    Maybe. More context would be preferable. Instead of saying "establish organisation", why not just use "organise".
    But really, it depends. Consider this:

    Mum: "Billy, I want you to establish organisation of your room immediately!" This is not something anyone would say.
    On the other hand, if you had to use business-speak, you could probably get away with it:
    "At this point in time, our major priority must be to establish organisation of an agenda with which we can move forward." = "We need a plan".
