Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 26, 2009
MDA Leadership Consulting has entered into an agreement with simulation developer ExperiencePoint Inc. to use the company's business simulations as part of the services MDA offers to leadership development and organizational performance clients. The partnership arose from MDA's strategic initiatives to grow its product and services portfolio.
"Over the past several years, we've pursued a deliberate growth strategy focused on two key initiatives," says Scott Nelson, Partner and MDA's Vice President of Leadership Development. "First, we're continuing to research, source and select best-practice tools to add to our client solutions. Second, we're exploring and building alliance relationships that will help us leverage new innovations in the fields of leadership development, organizational performance and talent management. This partnership with ExperiencePoint and the use of their state-of-the-art business simulations aligns with both of those strategies."
According to Nelson, a key focus of MDA's leadership development and organizational performance practices is to help clients and their leaders successfully navigate and manage critical change efforts. This partnership, through which MDA consultants will deliver ExperiencePoint simulations as part of an overall solution set, will provide two immediate applications to MDA's clients: At a broader level, it will support leadership efforts to drive systemic change within an organization. At the individual level, it will equip leaders and their teams with vital change management skills, allowing them to better navigate the complexities of change and leverage all of the tactics available to them to better lead through change.
"In the current economic environment, the need for organizations and their leaders to effectively drive change has never been greater," Nelson notes. "That's why we're so enthusiastic about this partnership. It's helping us deliver a comprehensive solution that addresses one of the major issues organizations are dealing with today."
"ExperiencePoint is very excited to formalize a partnership with MDA Leadership," says James Chisholm, Principal and Co-Founder of ExperiencePoint. "MDA has a great reputation for developing leaders with their unique approach, and they are a trusted advisor to the clients with whom they partner. We've been very impressed with how they've extended this approach to our partnership and integrated our solutions with their custom programs. MDA's expertise and results-orientation ensures that our leadership simulations will deliver great business results."
