Delivery of the ODM is a combination of consulting services and on-site training. The on-site training works through the design and implementation of the ODM. The consulting is provided to guide the company through steps that may not be included in the training program. The flexibility of training and consulting ensures the client gets a solution that meets their needs.
Training Session Structure
The training is designed to meet to deliver the company a working operational model and to meet the learning styles of the trainees.
Each module therefor works through a process of introducing a concept, identifying how it should be used and then implementing the concept to build up the operating model.
The learning model we use employs the Activist, Reflector, Theorist and Pragmatist styles. The Activist learns by doing, the Reflector by observing and thinking, The Theories needs the background ideas and the Pragmatists are keen on trying things out. See links 1 & 2 at page footer.
