Organisational Development

Strategem believe that businesses in the UK need to succeed at an international level to achieve strong and sustainable economic growth. Critical to this is encouraging companies to develop greater workplace innovation and a structured approach to Organisational Development, aligning a company’s growth objectives with its people, skills and talent priorities in order to drive improved competitiveness and productivity growth.


Organisational Development (OD) is about improving performance at the individual, group and organisational levels. It is about improving the organisation’s ability to effectively respond to changes in its external environment and it’s about increasing internal capabilities through ensuring the organisational structures, human resources systems, job designs, communication systems and leadership/managerial processes fully harness human motivation and help people function to their full potential.


OD is a broad topic, which incorporates many different areas, however at its core it essentially focuses on helping a business build sustainable organisational performance and growth through it’s people.  A primary, though not exclusive, goal of OD is to improve organisational effectiveness.
