We help you to build great teams

Aston OD works with health & social care organisations to improve performance through team based working

 

Led by Lynn Markiewicz and Professor Michael West, Aston OD works across the NHS to build good team and inter-team working. Our work reflects a strong belief that effective team working is key to high quality and compassionate care.

Our evidence-based team tools are widely used by OD, HR, L&D and service improvement practitioners who want to assess and develop teams but struggle with limited resources.

We build tools based on relevant and robust research. We back them with a cost-effective model of training, delivery and in-house support.

Find the right tool for you with our selection guide: Which Team Tool Do I Need?
