Organisational Development - Getting from A to B
As the name suggests, organisational development is about helping your organisation move forward to where you want it to be. To explain, imagine where you want your organisation to be in the future (point B), now consider its current position (point A). Organisation development is a systematic approach of analysing, planning and changing that will help you and your staff take your organisation from point A to point B.
Not always a straight path
As well as external factors, there are many internal aspects of your organisation that may be affecting its level of success. These include culture, staffing structures, skill and knowledge levels, communications, leadership style, management capability or capacity, technology, systems, product range, processes and more. All aspects of your organisation are interrelated, make a change to one and there will be an impact on others. (e.g. Introduce a new type of machinery and the skills and knowledge of staff will need to change in order that it can be operated effectively).
Therefore, in plotting the best path from A to B, effective Organisational Development, will enable you to successfully identify, plan for and manage these interrelationships every step of the way.

'Bridget is a pragmatic and intelligent leader and her insights were key in the development of our organisation's People Strategy. Able to understand both local issues and the wider Government driven agenda she provided input to ensure that our priorities were aligned with both national and local agendas. Her experience and relationship-building skills helped to drive substantial change while working closely with the Unions on challenging issues. Bridget's breadth of skills and leadership style would be of value to any organisation, in particular, those trying to drive change in a challenging environment. A pleasure to work with, I unreservedly recommend her as an HR Leader' Southampton City Council
