Manage your human risks
- the missing link between strategy and execution
We connect your people to your strategy
OpDem uses evidenced people science and scale-personalised warm human implementation to release the full value of your workforces, and boost efficiency, innovation, resilience and growth
We unlock the black box of people and performance
We work in three ways:
We evaluate strategy execution risks
Different strategies make different demands on the workforce. We work with you to map and measure your workforce’s ability to deliver what matters most to your business, based on robust predictive research & comparative data.
We measure execution success drivers with comprehensiveness, accuracy & relevance
From a fast, collaborative and transparent process you get an evidenced & benchmarked evaluation of your organisational vulnerabilities in executing specific strategies, indications of strengths and potential you could make more of, and prioritised advice on managing those risks & opportunities.
We get your people adapting together
Successful execution depends on the right people doing the right things in the right ways. We coach top teams, and work with them to catalyse combinations of support throughout the organisation - from organisational design to performance & management approaches to skills development to culture-building to automation work design to career pathing.
We embed personalised, innovative & collaborative work changes at whole-org scale
The aim is to embed ways of working that deliver your strategy and build growth for the future through increasing your people's ability to innovate, share learnings, increase efficiency through taking an experimental, data-rich, people-centred approach to business as usual.
We equip you to improve on success
Because change is now business-as-usual, we embed risk-monitoring, prioritisation and experiment-evidenced innovation within your human and information systems in ways that fit your culture and business priorities.
We embed predictive risk management in daily operations.
This human-systems approach means that the business as a whole is spotting and adapting to potential problems before they impact operations.
What OpDem brings
We are deep experts in people and work. We have founded and led companies, run research programmes, and implemented pragmatic solutions in seven countries on four continents. We are united by a deep interest in human systems, AI and business resilience within VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) contexts. We advise, we build tech, and we embed expertise within our clients.
We are catalysts, not outsourcers.
