Michael Prisk, Team Leader Human Resources, Hurunui District Council
We engaged ODI to deliver a Leadership and Management Development programme, having gone through a rigorous tendering process to secure the business. The programme was superbly delivered and premised on the outset around a thorough understanding of the learning needs of our organisation. The programme was delivered by very engaging presenters who are authoritative experts and leading practitioners in their fields, employing the latest adult learning principles. The workshops involved high interaction and reflection through group exercises. The whole programme was underpinned by an emphasis on a transfer of learning using the best practice Kirkpatrick framework. Action Learning Groups ensured the learning was put to immediate use between each session and focused on application back at work. Overall the evaluation of the course material and subsequent transfer of learning has ensured we have yielded a high return on investment by increasing individual and organisational performance. I have no hesitation in recommending this first class high value provider of learning services who are very client focused, immersed in best practice and the latest research, and work extremely hard to ensure the learning is applied.
