With the infinity loop as our symbol, OD4Impact always links an organization’s internal activities and resources with a thoughtfully-identified set of external players and opportunities. External relationship-building helps you to stay up-to-date on the issues that influence your strategy, to join up with emerging social innovations, and to maximize and track desired impact.
We also help our clients develop into true Learning Organizations, where there is a rich and ongoing internal conversation about who you are, what you are doing, what you are learning, and how to adjust and improve. This approach increases intelligence and reflective capacity at all levels of the organization, and has a profound effect on internal culture, engagement, and impact.
Finally, we target long-term capacity building, improving people skills, reconfiguring workflows, evolving management processes, and adding technological supports and systems. This ongoing adaptation is essential, especially in an era where COVID-19 creates so much uncertainty.
COULD YOUR ORGANIZATION BENEFIT FROM GREATER INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ALIGNMENT? HOW WOULD THAT INCREASE YOUR IMPACT?
Drawing from decades of experience, we know that theory-informed services and tools greatly enhance focus, impact, alignment and capacity. We therefore regularly prepare and circulate short but substantive “thinkpieces” that draw on key pieces of OD and social innovation theory.
