Org Dev’l (OD) is a process to improve business processes, interpersonal relationship, and business outcomes. It focuses on inputs, process, products, outputs, and outcomes to improve capacity, capabilities, and competence to achieve desired outcomes for those with a vested interest in the organization.

I have been fortunate to have learned OD from gifted OD scholars, remarkable managers, professional certifications, and decades of engaging clients’ experiences. This OD learning and extensive OD practice manifests as deep and transferable knowledge in the following Org Dev’l competences:​

  • Executive Coaching
  • Strategic Planning
  • Executive Onboarding
  • Clients Advisory Boards
  • Leading Change
  • Succession Planning
  • Organization Design
The following pages describe the nature and impact of these OD competencies. And what I strive to leave behind for those who are interested in and appreciate the value of Organization Development.
