The Development Consortium


The Development Consortium connects senior OD/L&D leaders and provides an innovative micro-community where, in an informal, intimate setting, members stay on the forefront of OD/L&D, exchange ideas, share resources, discuss challenges, and support one another.


Who We Are

Inspired by the energy and passion of our fellow Learning & Development and OD professionals, The Development Consortium is a leading-edge micro-community, where, in an informal, intimate setting, Senior L&D/OD professionals share theories, challenges, and resources. The Consortium is a closed-door environment where members explore methodologies and approaches, share resources, and help each other become more effective and fulfilled in our work.
