    What participants say 

    “Having the pleasure to attend the EODF masterclass, it brought up many ‘aha moments’ and definitely helped me and my team be better equipped to bring org design to life. We learned how to approach design and exchanged experiences. Totally recommended!”

    “Great format. Great content. I will definitely recommend.”

    Houdra, Germany

    EODF encouraged me to think in a new format that was proactive and in the mindset needed for proper planning and design. I was able to get a new framework and principles to work with that I knew could help me mitigate the risk of implementation and the success of our reorganisation. The skills provided and learned were invaluable and clearly apparent even just after the first day. I still find myself using them in other decision making factors as part of a department management team
