WHO IS NDMA?
NDMA is a research, publishing, and consulting firm focused exclusively on organizational design. It is based on the consulting practice of Dean Meyer, and his vision of organizations built on the business-within-a-business paradigm.
NDMA helps leaders "re-program" the systems within organizations that guide people's decisions and actions.
Systems include: culture, structure, work flows, and resource-governance processes including budgeting and product/service costing.
Just as business-strategy consultants should specialize in industries and business-process consultants should specialize in functional areas, organization design experts like Dean Meyer should not. Instead, NDMA specializes in organizational dynamics, the systems inside organizations that affect every functional area and industry.
What NDMA Brings
In each topic area, NDMA combines four things:
- Visionary thinking about high-performance organizations based on the "business-within-a-business" paradigm.
- Scientific frameworks and methods applied to issues others might consider "soft."
- Pragmatic, participative implementation methods grounded in change management and proven in practice.
- Experience in a broad variety of corporate, government, and not-for-profit institutions.
In some cases, Dean Meyer is employed as an executive coach -- either a day here and there as needed, or on a regular schedule.
Other organizations ask Dean to facilitate two-day executive retreats to decide organizational questions or plan leadership initiatives.
Dean's primary work is facilitating systemic change processes.
NDMA's intellectual capital is also packaged in publications, and in comprehensive studies (available under license).
Dean is also a speaker at conferences and associations.

When facilitating change, NDMA's role is to teach and facilitate, not study and prescribe (as with the traditional, but less effective, consulting model).
This participative approach ensures that all decisions are made by your leadership team, tapping their inside knowledge while building the understanding and commitment that's necessary for effective implementation.
This approach is highly cost effective, allowing Dean to personally facilitate significant change processes for the price of one typical consulting "study."
Participation also builds clients' self-sufficiency. In short, NDMA works itself out of a job as quickly as possible.
Bottom Line: The Result
NDMA helps executives build entrepreneurial organizations that are customer focused, productive, team-oriented, innovative, and employers of choice.
