Adopting a holistic organizational development concept and focus.

Total Organization Development

As business becomes more and more a matter of defining an organization's mission and marshalling commitment to that mission—particularly in discontinuous and extenuating circumstances—so is fostering effective synergy of personal and organizational excellence for transformational organization change, leadership, and performance. This is a transformational process involving holistic development of the organization, a concept and approach that we see as total organization development.

By adopting the insights, solutions, models, and tools aimed at total organization development, organizational development interventions would impact organizational behavior holistically and sustainably—as they facilitate effective functional interdependences of people's actualizing attributes and excellence of organizational attributes.

Professionally, our forte is fostering effective synergy of people's actualizing attributes and integrating organizational facets in the process of total organization development of any business or organization for transformational change—in line with their strategic mission and competitive vision,—doing this in insightful and imaginative ways.

We have solid expertise in the following organizational development niche areas:

  • Organization Design, Health, and Effectiveness
  • Organizational Change and Transformation Management
  • High-Performing Culture Building
  • High-Performance Team Building
  • Leadership Development
  • Organizational Development Internal Capacity Building
  • Human Resource Systems Review and Development
  • These areas—together with public service management, governance, service delivery and development,—are what our team, led by Dr. Oladele Akin-Ogundeji, have been consulting on for several years in Nigeria and in some parts of Africa.
