On organisation development
We bring dedicated expertise to support your efforts of creating a more effective organisation with a culture that underpins its success. All Organisational Development and change management interventions are bespoke to the client organisation. We use evidence-based approaches and positive OD methods, including an innovative range of change techniques, such as the Switch model, the Work-Out method or World Café. We combine them for best effect depending on the organisation’s culture, previous change activities, the deliverables, timings and the level of involvement and availability of key stakeholders.
Where appropriate we use Appreciative Inquiry (AI) to identify existing good practice, and build on the unique strengths of your organisation. Rather than finding and ‘fixing’ problems and weaknesses, Appreciative Inquiry focuses on what is already working to create positive change. This facilitated process allows companies, their employees and customers to play an active role in identifying a positive change topic, discovering the best of what is in place, establishing an ideal outcome, designing the change process and delivering on their plans.
As part of the project delivery, workshops, training and coaching are offered to teams or individuals to ensure that they have the skills and knowledge they need to be successful.
