Sharing AOD

Welcome to our Resources!

We are delighted you might wish to explore how Assured Outcome Delivery, or AOD, can help support your change efforts and desire to strengthen capabilities in benefits realisation.  We hope it can help you increase confidence in the abilities to deliver desired changes and efficiencies planned from investment in projects and programmes.

Please have a look at the AOD Introduction video from our founders, and then perhaps review the six introductions to our Toolset.    We have developed 40 tools to support the ODN members and clients effort in seeking to deliver change and desired benefits more reliably using AOD.

If you would like to learn more, other pages on the site describe how to become an ODN member or how to engage in formal AOD Training sessions.

Stakeholder Management and Communications

Why use stakeholder management?
