Since 1999, our Strategy and Organization Development (SOD) group has carefully identified, researched and developed products and services to help mid-size businesses like yours grow and become more competitive.
Today, SOD products and services address three areas to help your business achieve higher performance: knowledge development, strategy development and talent development. This expertise can help you in several areas including:
- Assess and benchmark company performance,
- Develop and implement successful long- and short-term strategies,
- Identify priorities and action steps, and
- Measure and monitor progress.

Many businesses need a short-term action plan. The greatest need may be to increase sales or move into new markets. Other businesses need a more comprehensive strategic plan. SOD has well proven tools and process that can be customized to meet your needs depending on where you are. more >>
Every business must develop or acquire the talent needed to achieve their goals. Over many years, SOD has researched, developed, and applied highly selected tools for leadership and management development. SOD has sought tools that are considered the “gold standard”—tools that are used by recognized high-performing companies.
Most of the services provided by the SBTDC are at no-fee. Due to the degree of application and level of service, some SOD products and services are fee-based. However, these are delivered at accessible, university-based rates. more >>
