Organisation Diagnosis

Caryn drew on her experiences from Delta Consulting (Mercer/Oliver Wyman) G.E. and GSK, looking at how to use models to assess organisation effectiveness.

Analysis does not stand in isolation-responsible parties need to be ‘involved'. Also, an understanding of the wider context or the ‘whole system' is necessary--one off interventions do not sufficiently move the needle.
