Leverage the genius in your organization with OD Consulting.
Do you need support planning and navigating systemic change in your organization?
Are you creating something new for your community trying to engage diverse stakeholder groups?
Change can be difficult. I have found that successful, long lasting change requires a number of elements, chief among them: 1) leadership engagement, 2) involvement of all stakeholders, 3) paying attention to the whole system, and 4) communication, communication, communication.
Organization Development can mean a lot of things. The definition is debated even within the industry. I like to focus my OD work on three areas:
- Strategy – Strategic planning for the organization as a whole, a subset, or a specific initiative.
- Program Development – Design and development of new segments or initiatives of the organization, requiring whole systems thinking, strategy, process design/redesign, communications, and training. These are usually long term projects.
- Organization Design – Determining the necessary structure and team needs as the organization grows, including identification of roles and responsibilities, and the right fit for culture. This may shift processes and require creating new training as responsibilities change and new employees are hired.
There are times when an outside perspective and expertise is necessary to facilitate objective clarity and action. My experience goes beyond these three areas; so I’m open to discussing a different scope of work.
Before launching KOR Solutions in 2008 my professional life and graduate education were in Organization Development. Naturally, when I went out on my own I initially focused my service offerings in the areas of strategic planning, process design/redesign, and organization design and development.

My experience in corporate, entrepreneurial and non-profit environments of varying sizes makes it easy for me to work within any type of company or organization, adapting quickly. In addition to working within businesses, I have extensive experience in grassroots and community initiatives.
