Our Service to You - For Corporate University 

Consulting - Corporate University

A Corporate University (or a Corporate Academy) is an internal entity designed to help its parent organizations achieve their specific strategic goals by conducting activities that foster individual and organizational learning and knowledge. We can help you design and create your own Corporate University.

Our methodology is based on the Corporate University Blueprint developed by Professor Richard Dealtry. The Corporate University Blueprint involves all important governance, administrative and logistical frameworks. 

This multi-purpose, real-time, open project management process process will be used at corporate, division or project level, offering flexibility and re-usability and sustainability.

The blueprint is also a dynamic process of Corporate University Management, and establishes action focused roles and responsibilities, combining inter-dependencies across business and organizational processes.


Real-Time Practice in Organization Development 

Organization and management development processes have changed incrementally over the years from previous mechanistic processes to the present real-time events that are much are more highly dynamic, high impact led processes, facilitated by key peoples latest imperatives.

You are now entering that new phase of development, and using the people processes that is revealed you will find an advanced style of company thinking for re-casting your existing and emergent best practices.  You need to emphasise and use the significance of change events acting in real-time. Developing markets should follow a process of operational reality and changes in new process developments that all combine and contribute to the local and core strategic role. These processes are a completely live strategic system , with each process generating its own timescale for action.
