1. Orientation
The world of business has been turned upside down and change seems to be avalanching down upon our heads. In an effort to cope with all the external and internal factors organizations are going through significant changes, including transformation, downsizing, rightsizing, re-engineering, flattening, and restructuring. In the highly stressful and turbulent environment of the 21st century it is often difficult to create and maintain an organization that motivates, enhances efficiency and delivers peak performance. In order to survive it seems imperative that organizations become learning entities that renews and transforms itself to meet the challenges of tomorrow.


2. Why Organizational Development?
Organisational development can be defined as an emerging discipline aimed at improving the effectiveness of organisations and its members by means of systematically planned interventions. A truly effective organisation is one in which both the organisation and the individual can grow and develop. Such an environment can be termed ‘healthy’ – and organizational development is all about creating healthy and effective environments.

The following are some of the primary reasons why companies engage in organizational development interventions.

    1. To improve competitive positioning. It is about surviving in a highly competitive environment. Organizations realise that they would cease to exist if they do not adapt & deal with the changes
    2. To improve performance. Without any interventions performance gradually declines
    3. To keep pace with the accelerated rate of innovation
    4. To become more flexible to adapt to the changing environment
    5. To change their corporate culture
    6. To increase productivity
    7. To increase responsiveness to clients
    8. To increase employee involvement and participation.
    9. To increase employee morale
    10. To develop new managerial skills and strategies

3. Our Philosophy

DCT’s organizational development consultancy is based on the following principles:

    • Organizational behaviour/ performance can only be analysed in context of the business environment in which it functions
    • Organizations are in a dynamic state of flux – either upward or downward spiral
    • To keep upward momentum needs constant effort
    • Three components needed are intelligence, intent & energy

Traits of successful organisations:

    • Fast- more adaptive & responsive to innovation and change
    • Quality conscious – a total commitment to quality
    • Employee involvement – adding value through human resources
    • Customer oriented – creating niche markets (diversity)
    • High performance organisations do not just occur by change, they are designed. Organisations are designed to get the results that they get
