Sample O.D. Projects
Sample OD Projects by Client or Organization Type, Focus and Role and Project Description
Healthy Systems specializes in the organizational design and change, culture and in human interactions and development, often referred to as organization development (OD). When an organization recognizes a problem or identifies a needed change, we provide the frameworks, tools and coaching to gain a shared understanding of the situation dynamics, to resolve the tensions surrounding it, design meetings, processes or projects as required to successfully navigate the change. We work on a project basis -- short or long-term. Our process generally involves one or more initial interviews to gain a focus, development of a project proposal, execution of the project plan (which may utilize a variety of methods), coaching and training along the way, and a post project evaluation that includes conversations and plan for next steps and stabilizing the improvement efforts.
The following projects are representative of the type of work we perform. If you don't see what you need, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
