Organization Development (OD) is the practice of helping organizations solve problems and reach their goals. A key emphasis in OD is assisting clients not just in meeting their goal but with learning new problem-solving skills they can use in the future.
What is special about Noa’s approach to OD?
We provide organizational consulting based on human performance improvement approach (HPIT) – approach to improve the performance of the human capital. This approach is based on the perceptions of business-behavioral psychology.
We create synergy between all the human resources development tools: Job analysis and design, screening candidates, determining the level of wages, training design, assessment and feedback
How do OD consultants work?
OD consultants contract with clients to offer a range of services, including:
• Job design – working with clients to help them plan an agenda (their vision, goals, objectives, processes), stay with the agenda, and discuss issues effectively
• Business Process Redesign — working with a group to analyze the current way of doing a specific piece of work to determine whether there is a better way to design how the work gets done.
• Change management — working with departments, committees and other groups to help them plan and implement significant changes in their organizations such as work reorganization or moves and space changes. (See our learning topic on Managing Change.)
• Group problem solving — helping a group identify a key issue, gather information about it, and outline decisions or action plans needed to address the issue.
• Talent Management -– helping managers assess their department’s workforce so that the right people are in the right roles with the right set of skills at the right time. (More information on talent management.)
• Team development — helping a team to develop its ability to work more effectively together. (See our learning topic on Working on Teams.)
• Customized Training — working with a group to develop or renew knowledge, skill or values relative to a the organization’s goals, based on the concept of object oriented training.
