Global Competency Focus
The "Leonardo Davincci's of OD", Renaissance Consultants thrive by learning, creating, and experimenting with a wide variety of transformative OD methodologies. Their client engagements are never a paint-by-number affair, but instead, masterpieces in the making. For Renaissance Consultants, each client is a canvas that may be used to help employees draw and connect insights that eventually emerge as genuinely transformative strategies. Organizations have been thrust into a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) playing field, which calls for the kind of innovative solutions that defy our current understanding of the problem. Renaissance Consultants understand that the acceleration of these pressures compels organizations not only to evolve but also to create revolutionary leaps in the market value of their goods and services. This requires an almost unthinkable level of organizational dexterity, with which leaders must balance an increasingly mindful and futurist outlook with ‘on the spot’ innovation.
