Organisation Design

Tricordant has developed a comprehensive organisation design approach to enable you to transform your organisation.

This approach is based on whole systems thinking. It centres on our unique Tricord™ model and enables you to rebuild your organisation with whole work teams; purpose-focused, continuously-improving, human-scale teams that are well-led and inspired.

We use a facilitative approach which will engage your staff and we can equip them with an organisation design toolset for ongoing use.

Our 12 tests ensure the design is whole and healthy, creating a great place in which to work.

We have successfully facilitated many organisation redesigns across health and social care, local government, commercial and industrial and not-for-profit. We are particularly experienced in redesigning complex organisations, partnerships and networks.

Just as the challenges facing organisations requires continuous adaptive learning and change, so we recognise that as consultants we need to continuously develop and extend our practice. We do this through formal learning, reflective practice and partnering with acknowledged leading OD practitioners.

Our professional development, training and teaching includes European Organisation Design Forum (EODF), the Organisation Development Network Europe (ODNE), the NTL Institute, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), Institute of Psychosynthesis  and Brunel University Business School.

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” – Ernst F. Schumacher, Small Is Beautiful
