Organizational Development
At its core, organizational development (O.D.) is the science of enduring change to diagnose and then work to optimize health, culture, and performance. Using contemporary consulting, change management, and organizational development techniques and instruments, Parallax can help your organization evaluate, design, and implement programs that support and develop your greatest asset: your people. Our integrated O.D. approach encompasses needs analysis, expert facilitation, building and sustaining trusting relationships, consulting, evidence-based recommendations, and execution/evaluation support.

Talent Exchanges 

Talent exchanges are vital to a company’s talent marketplace, allowing employees to develop skillsets that align with business needs and help solve critical challenges that result from changing markets.  Talent exchanges also promote intelligent teaming opportunities between and among partners, resulting in diversity of thought, innovative ideas, and bold solutions. The goal of a talent exchange is to build collaborative partnerships across academia, industry, and government sectors that are mutually beneficial to all participants. Access to state-of-the-art facilities, research, and talent can lead to greater prominence. Talent exchanges can have a lasting and positive impact on business growth, employee experience, and customer satisfaction. 

Evaluation and Research 

Today’s talent marketplace requires evidence to support the crucial decisions that have an indelible impact on your company’s talent and business strategies. Questions like, “Are your efforts making a difference?” and “How do you know?”, if unanswered, can obstruct a company’s prosperity and relevance. Parallax’s Evaluation and Research capabilities are unparalleled. We infuse a suite of effective evaluative approaches with a robust and extensive toolkit of research methodologies to promote efficacy, value, and a positive return on investment. Parallax seeks to understand, explore, and surmise the business driver(s) that necessitate an evaluation and/or research project. To that end, Parallax offers complimentary consultations to discuss those needs with you.
