Organizational Development Services
How do we support your organization’s OD efforts?
Our focus is to help you make your company function better, whether you need support for a singular task or if you are beginning a multi-year challenge.
Our job is to increase your business success by clarifying options, helping you plan how to get where you want to go, and providing the tools to get there.
Most successful OD efforts do not occur in isolation from the rest of the organization. With a holistic view, we group our primary service areas in the following manner:
Organization Diagnostics, Change & Effectiveness
From general business consulting to specific task orders, bringing in external consultants can be essential for the success of OD projects. Spanning the range of culture evaluation, change efforts and strategic planning to task-oriented activities such as satisfaction surveys and internal conflict resolution, we have the tools and expertise in OD to meet your needs.
Executive, Team & Associate Development
When it comes to employees, a targeted approach to each desired objective produces better outcomes. Coaching and development, engagement and retention strategies, and succession planning are important across all levels in an organization. We also provide OD support for employees leaving a company, including customized outplacement services and exit diagnostics.
Assessments can be used in many ways: as part of the hiring or selection process, to establish qualification for internal positions, or to determine individual or group training needs. Our assessments range from EEOC-compliant content-validated assessments to standardized, non-customized tests. These assessments can be administered as paper/pencil tests or online.
When specific knowledge gaps for individuals or a department are known, action can be taken to provide the appropriate training. Study guides, customized training materials and curriculum can provide the most efficient and cost-effective path to improvement. We can create materials for a short, single topic or an entire curriculum, including U.S. Department of Labor approved apprentice programs.
Maintenance Practices & Process Improvement
Systems and processes need their performance gaps determined, too. Maintenance is a complex process that can be methodically optimized to increase its capability and reduce waste of all types. Similarly, most operational processes, including administrative, can be improved by increasing the process capability and reducing operational waste. Our expertise supports maintenance and process improvement from a holistic perspective, not focused solely on a piece of equipment.
