Institute Strategy

The next and natural progression for The Beech Centre is to seek accreditation as an institute for organisational development.

An institute based on excellence in the provision of development programmes and undertaking research that leads to inspirational consultancy support. The research will underpin OD interventions that genuinely and demonstrably improve the performance of people and organisations.

We will be a member based institute with a governance structure that ensures members really do drive the institute and gain maximum benefit from being part of a thriving, innovative and effective OD community.
