Put simply, Organizational Change Management (OCM) focuses on people, while Organizational Development (OD) addresses the big picture of an organization.
OCM takes a methodical approach to supporting individuals through specific initiatives by focusing on strong sponsorship, stakeholder engagement, process readiness, quality communication, and training. It prioritizes the human side of change and helps individuals adapt to new organizational shifts or transformations. OD, on the other hand, takes a broader, more comprehensive approach to improving leadership, performance, culture, and organizational structures.
The Vivid Co. team brings expertise in both areas, so check out our services to learn more about what we offer, or reach out to our team directly to find out how we can make your work a little bit easier.
External Project Quality Assurance is required by the Washington State Legislature for certain high-cost, high-risk projects. It is the assessment of project management processes and activities to identify risks and conditions that threaten a project’s success. It monitors progress and risk mitigation strategies and makes recommendations for improvement that will increase the likelihood of project success. QA serves as an early warning system, alerting executives and sponsors to looming risks and offering recommendations to effectively mitigate the risks. It is also a close-up look at what is really happening in the project and agency.
External Project Quality Assurance should not be confused with software QA, software testing, quality control, IV&V, or auditing and control of human or system errors. These are all different services that Vivid Co. does not provide.
