  • an internal project champion / consultant and
  • an external consultant experienced in designing and implementing requisite organization - based projects.

So if you are a CEO or general manager exploring how to proceed with design work, here are a few tips on how to Identify and retain an RO-experienced consultant who is the best-fit for your organization.

  • Scan the organization design book available on this site for companies and projects in your own industry or similar to what you are thinking of doing -- and call the sponsoring general manager for a recommendation.
  • Scan the affiliate profiles on this web.  Many of the senior consultants in the field are listed there with a short bio and link to their firm's web site.

  • Check their references carefully.
