• Who We Are?


At The ODD Company, we specialise in organisational development through our unique online resource, the Team Diagnostic Profiler (TDP). We help organizations successfully improve the performance of their teams and leaders using corporate team strategies.

Our approach using our TDP platform and methodology:

  • Drives up to 25% effectiveness in team performance
  • Recognizes the difference in team types – their unique characteristics and challenges
  • Links team and individual performance management
  • Integrates team performance metrics with key business processes
  • Is complimentary to your existing team assessment and development methods
  • Is a uniquely self-serve, continuous self-assessment platform
  • Is easily tailored to your needs, scalable with your business and cost effective
  • Is an operational and not a HR process
