Appreciative Inquiry & Whole Systems Organisational Development
Welcome to the home of Summit Business Training. We are Irelands leading experts in using strength based, whole system approaches to organisational change. We can work with you and your company’s stakeholders to co-create a brighter future for your organisations and everyone who is touched by the services and/or products you provide.
Organisations Embracive of Change = Sustainable Competitive Advantage
The rate of change is not going to slow down anytime soon. If anything, competition in most industries will probably speed up even more in the next few decades. With this in mind it is now of extreme importance for organisations to build a core competency in its ability to adapt to and embrace change. Yes, you can increase the rate of success in projects by having a well thought out plan and a skilled change manager. However, for a company to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage through its corporate culture it must embed a successful new way of operating over time. Once an organisation and its stakeholders get comfortable using strength based approaches to facilitate and manage change they will see a new corporate culture begin to form. The strength based methodologies used by Summit Business Training, over time, become your new philosophy “the way things are done around here”.
Incremental Changes Leading To Game Changing Results
The good news is, to plant the seed, to get things started does not have to be a huge company-wide project involving a team of consultants trying to change everything all at the same time, and costing unjustifiable amounts capital. In fact sometimes it works best to start with a group/department or small SME and letting it grow organically. Starting off with one manageable project, getting comfortable with “the new way of doing things” before moving onto the next. The aim of Summit Business Training is to work with you and your organisation until you have mastered the skills needed to create your own unique strength based approach.
