Who should attend

The Masterclass is designed exclusively for senior consultants, coaches and executives who focus on addressing the human dimensions of organisational change and represents the first foundational step towards certification in KDVI's OCA™ tool.

About the course

This masterclass introduces a holistic framework for leadership teams to foster healthy, high-performing organisational cultures. once completed, participants are welcome to purchase and use the OCA™.

The Organisational Culture Audit (OCA™) is a powerful diagnostic tool for making the hidden dynamics of culture visible and initiating action to create a more effective organisation. It provides a rich starting point for courageous conversations about individual and organisational values, behaviours and imperatives for change.


Step 1: The Masterclass - Foundational Certification

The Masterclass takes place over 5 modules, run live via webinar:

  • Module 1. Foundations Theoretical foundations, holistic diagnostic framework, and overview of the OCA™ and walk through of an OCA™ feedback report
  • Module 2. Small group work OCA™ case discussion in small groups
  • Module 3. OCA™ Journey from start to finish Deep dive into the OCA™ from contracting to delivery to follow up through an engaging and challenging case study
  • Module 4. You and your practice Participant case studies around using the OCA™ with their clients/organisation
  • Module 5. Integrating the OCA™ into larger change projects Overview of KDVI change framework and how to integrate the OCA™ into projects through case scenarios, best practices and traps

The Masterclass is designed to be participatory, with content and group work done before and after each module. These sessions allow for interactive discussions, knowledge sharing and problem solving.

Step 2: Client Application - Advanced Certification

Given the complexity of organisational culture interventions we have devised a second step towards full certification. Full certification and confidence in deploying the tool is acheived either via:

Supervised application of the OCA™ with a client.

Supervision takes the form of 3 supervision calls: (1) before the tool launch to support on objectives, hypotheses, category selection and framing with the client, (2) once the OCA™ report is generated to provide support in reviewing the results and preparing the client debrief, and (3) post client debrief to support on outcomes, next steps, and to reflect on the experience. A case reflection paper is to be written up by the participant. We preview approximately 7-10 hours for the supervision calls.

Consulting co-delivery of a first intervention as a guided learning process.

A KDVI Associate partners with the participant to frame a client intervention, interpret the results, and design and run a client debrief. Post the client intervention, there is a debrief between the participant and the KDVI Associate to exchange feedback and insights. Pricing is project specific.
