Bus370 dis 2 wk 2 Experience with Consultants [CLOs: 1,2,3] Describe your experience with a consultant, either from your place of employment (current or previous), in the community, or as the consultant yourself. Thinking of this week’s lecture and the components of a contract, did he/she follow that process? If not, what was missed? Describe your experience. If you do not have experience with a consultant, recall a situation from your experience where you would have benefited from having an OD Consultant. What would you have done as a consultant? Why? Respond to two classmates’ posts. Experience with Consultants [CLOs: 1,2,3] According to Bierema consultants are the people who practice organizational development (OD), and who specializes in the action research processes with the skills to lead organizations through planned change (2014). I have had experience with consultants such as, financial consultants, insurance consultants, and medical consultants. The most interesting was an Ayurvedic medical consultant she had an amazing way of looking at health and combining food. I learned a lot and still use the philosophy today to stay fit and healthy. I have also been a consultant with my current and previous employers. I currently work fulltime in a Spin Studio and I act as a consultant for the activity of spinning. Many people do not understand the concept or the purpose of spinning. I have influence over those people that are interested and explain why the activity is appropriate; I also explain why the activity is less appropriate to those that should not participate. The individual always makes the final decision based off of my recommendation. I have also acted as a consultant for Office Depot in their Copy & Print department and for the credit union that I managed in the past. “Consulting skills are related to helping organizations and organizational units. They include diagnosis problems, design and implement interventions and evaluate interventions” (Dyer & Preston, 2000, p. 136). These skills are necessary in any type of consulting, such as when I managed a credit union branch I needed these skills when I would help a member balance their checkbook, I would consult with them on the best method to do this themselves and followup the next month to ensure they followed the process correctly, if they did not I would help them further by finding out where they still needed more assistance.
