Our approach is to come alongside you as a skilful guide; initially showing you the way and then gradually stepping back to let you and your teams take the lead.

Organisation Development (OD)

Brings strategic intent to life, aligning strategy, people and process to create a healthy organisation where individuals can thrive and contribute, and where the organisation can achieve high levels of performance in a sustainable way.
We are a team of experienced OD practitioners with hands on practical experience in senior organisational roles and a deep understanding of the theoretical and psychological bases that shape all aspects of transformation and OD practice. We combine these and add our OD consulting experience with a wide range of clients.
We can provide:
OD Consultancy – bringing our specialist knowledge and expertise to help you build the organisation capability to deliver your strategic intent for transformation. Helping you to gain clarity of the depth and reach of your transformation; aligning and integrating the transformational levers of strategy, leadership and culture; optimising your organisation design; building a high performance organisation; involving and engaging your employees; and transforming your organisation
Building OD Capability – building OD capability and capacity within your internal teams; OD/HR teams, change agents, and senior leadership teams; to enable an OD approach to become part of your DNA for future changes
OD Coaching/Shadow Consultancy – discreetly supporting your internal change agents, OD/HR practitioners, and senior leaders ‘behind the scenes’ during periods of organisational change and transformation. Being a ‘critical friend’ for pivotal moments, and providing a safe reflective space to deepen your knowledge and learning of working with OD approaches.

Transformation and Change

The phrases ‘Transformation’ and ‘Change’ have become interchangeable for many people, and that isn’t always helpful. We see the difference as:
Change is always with us. Change management is implicit and incorporated into much of the work we do. It involves working incrementally to implement new processes and operational practices to improve efficiency and effectiveness. It may take place at any level in the organisation and may be contained within a single department or function
Transformation is a radical departure from the status quo – a major shift in how you do business, often driven by a changing marketplace, that impacts structure, culture or operating practice; often business wide in nature and with a cross-functional impact. Transformation not only requires the ability to work in new ways, but also an inner shift in people’s mental models of the organisation, values, behaviours and ways of interacting.
Transformation work demands a specialist approach and we can support you with:

  • Gaining clarity about what the scope of your transformation means and the business benefits you are seeking
  • Creating a new Business Operating Model or Target Operating Model
  • Post merger integration
  • Holistic and systemic approaches to transformation
  • Generating breakthroughs in your thinking
  • Employee engagement and strategic alignment
  • Large Scale Change/Large Scale Interventions
  • Facilitation

Like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly, transformation signals that the old way of working and existing are gone forever

Management Training Programs
