Provide an overview of what OD is and the value it can have on a business such as Sprockets
Formative Assessment 4 - 7ODD
Sprockets Cycles in Dalkeith, Scotland, is a well-established Bicycle repair shop in the heart of the bustling town centre. It has existed for over 50 years and is a family run organisation. However, in recent months and years, the business has found itself in financial difficulty and has been bought by a local business group. The group are keen to bring in an OD consultant to restructure the business and ensure it meets the demands of customers and retain its brand images. The structure at Sprocket Cycles is tall and bureaucratic. The family has full control over the business and don’t encourage participation between the front-line staff, mechanics or helpful assistants. The HR department is run by one person and they do not get involved in any change processes because the family don’t believe that HR should have a role to play in such an activity. As a result, the culture at Sprockets Cycles is somewhat downbeat and is your job as a consultant to help.
