Let's make this clear
Periodization is a way to conceptualize training developed by russian coaches that helped to manipulate the time with which an athlete reacted to training.
Even for a beginner periodization is actually more useful than going blind.
The issue between advanced athletes and beginners is about two majour points:
1- Minimum load necessary: the minimum load that an athlete requires to produce a supercompensation and thus results.
2- Heterogeneity of skills targeted: dividing the workload on multiple target will diminish the amount of workload each one is going to get.
If for beginners is good to target multiple skills at the same time ( because each one of them will get the right amount of load ), its not the same for an advanced athlete. And when I say "skill" I'm referring either to a conditional capacity like anaerobic power or a coordinative skill like trowing a hammer.
At this purpose in the 80s, Vladimir Issurin came up with the Block Periodization: a multipeak performance concept of periodization that helped to reduce the hours/year ratio of training and eventually improve performance. Right now is a concept widely adopted from most of the top level coaches.
Anyway what you're asking is simpler: yes, you will actually benefit of periodizing your training regimen EVEN if you're a novice.
The timing is based mostly on how well you know the athlete and his/her body ( or yours, in the case you wanna apply this to yourself ) and the reaction it has.
The reduction of volume in strenght training is actually crucial, because at the same time intensity goes up if its a realization microcycle and in that time you notice most of your progress.
