ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT CONSULTING
The foundation of our organization development experience is in Appreciative Inquiry—a philosophy, a methodology, and a research tool that engages stakeholders in the process of leveraging what is currently working in order to move into the desired future state. We approach organization development as an engaged observer and reporter, with the belief that in order to see effective change, all stakeholders must be "in the room," or at least part of the process. It is not up to us to tell an organization what to do; our role is to show an organization the narrative that it is telling itself and help leaders and teams make decisions about change that are right for their unique story.
Our consulting process includes:
Planning and kick-off with your internal support committee
Robust and representative data gathering through surveys, interviews and focus groups
Environmental scan report with suggestions and recommendations for forward action
Whole system change workshop or workshop series
Action planning with internal support committee
Close-out and retrospective feedback process with recommendations for continued support
An organization development and communications consultant will...
Help you understand the culture and/or health of the organization or those it serves
Create an impactful approach to a major systematic change
Help you understand how the organization uses, shares and retains knowledge
Support improved internal communications structures and/or meetings
