How much time must you invest? 

Our sprints typically take 4-12 weeks with differing levels of engagement intensity. At the beginning of the initiative, most work takes place on our side of the playing field as we review your hard facts and observe your meetings, current people systems, and organization design. The only time that your team must make itself available outside its regular work are the design and potential excellence sessions during the respective sprints. As you will likely only go through this sprint if you want to revamp your Org Design, People Ops, or OD initiatives, not even these sessions result in additional time commitment for you. All sessions will be tailored to suit your needs and busy schedule.

What are deliverables?

  • customized process design.
  • 1-3 organizational design/org development/people ops models. 
  • survey & focus group design and delivery. 
  • observations of meetings and processes.
  • results presentation & hypothesis delivery.
