    External Consulting Community of Practice -- July 28, 2017

    2nd Annual Consulting Best Practices

    The External Consultant Community of Practice will hold its second Best Practices Session, and we will hear from several talented members.  There will be 4 different topics covered in this one session! 

    Quality Driven Performance Excellence: Quality as a Culture Change

     Speaker: Patrick Donnally

    With a focus on Quality (specifically Quality Driven Performance Excellence), any consultant in any industry anywhere in the world can successfully bring about significant improvement in overall organizational performance.

    In this top level presentation, we develop the logical connection from something as "soft" as Quality, to concrete KPIs such as profit, customer satisfaction, productivity, innovation, and ultimately to the engagement of every employee in the organization.  Underlying all of this is the value of a quality-driven culture.  

    Successful Training and Change Initiatives: Importance of Front Line  Managers and Supervisors in Creating Engagement

     Speaker: Meredith Willenbring

    Research shows that training is more successful and more positively perceived by employees when managers are engaged and partner with employees when it comes to training activities 

    This presentation will focus on the importance of the role of the front line supervisor/manager. Specifically it will discuss how the role of the front line manager/supervisor is vital to success of training when implementing a wide reaching change initiative. It will include practical application of ways that change leaders can help managers become an engagement training partner.

    8 Facets of Leadership and Team Development

     Speakers: Isabella Johnston & Bjoerg Winter Larsen



    Many organizations are experiencing challenges with internal communication, customer service and team dynamics due to exponential growth, poor leader awareness or poor communication channels.

    This presentation will demonstrate how the e-stimate tool aligns with the forecasted skill demands and provides a deeper and longer effect that enhances awareness and communication for individuals through actionable initiatives that are easy to understand, remember and implement in everyday worklife. 

    Reduce Resistance, Accelerate Change: A Journalistic Approach to Change Communications

     Speaker: Jennifer Crowell

    The field of organizational change management addresses the people side of change, and an overall organizational change management strategy and plan includes communication as a key lever for reducing resistance and accelerating adoption of the change. Change practitioners have taken care to incorporate communication best practices. We have borrowed strategies, processes, tactics, and tools from several specialties within the field of communication – strategic communication, corporate communication, organizational communication, project communication and employee communication, to name a few. 

    Learn the fundamental journalistic approaches to communicating change, and gain the tools to develop key messages that address specific types of resistance and barriers to adoption.

    What Happens When an Engineer Practices OD:   How to Analyze the Organization as a System

    Friday, August 11, 2017   

    Program Description

    Why do many Organization Development (OD) interventions fail to achieve their desired results?

    Often, interventions fail to achieve results because they failed to recognize the larger systemic influences at work.  An organization is a complex, adaptive system whose performance is created by the many interactions of its different parts. This fact, along with its adaptive nature (when you push, it pushes back) means that analysis and intervention based on breaking the organization into little pieces and focusing on solving those problems will often fail. Sadly, it is often exactly this type of solution that we are driven to by our clients or organizational stovepipes.

    Following the tragic Space Shuttle Columbia accident, Phillip was asked to lead the cultural and organizational changes required for return to flight. This assignment started an engineer down a path of learning and discovery, ultimately culminating in the creation of an OD group at Kennedy Space Center. Along the way, he discovered how viewing the organization as a system could lead to better effectiveness of OD initiatives.

    During this session, Phillip will share with you his journey and introduce you to tools from his engineering background which can be used to better understand organizations and design interventions.

    This program qualifies for 2.5 SHRM professional development credits (PDCs) through our partnership with UCF.


    Learning objectives:

    • Participants will be able to describe the characteristics of a complex adaptive system in order to create a systems model of their own organization.
    • Participants will be able to recognize the interactions and feedback between organizational components in order to better asses and diagnose organizational issues.
    • Participants will able to use causal loop diagrams to analyze organizational issues in order to better describe the systemic interactions and facilitate better discussion and buy-in from clients.
