About Organization Effectiveness

In order to compete in today’s continually changing environment while increasing efficiencies, companies have to retool and reposition themselves more often than they have had to do in the past. Companies repeatedly struggle to understand how the execution of their strategies impact their people as well as how their people can be effectively leveraged to enable these strategies.


Hitachi Consulting’s Organization Effectiveness practice provides solutions that bridge the gap between business strategy and execution.  We enable successful behavioral change and deliver business results in today’s most complex organizational initiatives and programs. With over 25 years of experience, we provide the solutions, methodologies, and expertise to help clients ensure that their organizations are successful with the changes they are making to their businesses.
