The Organisation Development (OD) Institute Consultancy services use experiential learning approach which is highly participatory and client-focused. We use appropriate learning strategies to facilitate change in a manner that empowers our clients and stakeholders to self-reflect, self-regulate and take control of their processes of improvement and learning with a view to effectively achieve their reason for existence. This is borne out of the belief that sustainable change lies within the client system. Most Consultants approach organisational problems with pre-designed solutions which often do not work.
