Systems Development

Designing new systems is not just about technology - it depends on a strong understanding of organisations, teams and individuals.

Systems Development is a term often used to describe the design and installation of a sophisticated IT platform that intends to deliver ‘step’ performance gains, but frequently results in a highly technical tool that is inaccessible to those who have to use it.  Drawing from our base in Organisation Development, IOD PARC looks at Systems Development as the design of tools and processes which may utilise technology where necessary, but our fundamental aim is to support organisations to develop the new routines, behaviours and ways of working that will help them to maximise their performance.  Our main systems development focal areas have included Learning and Development, Monitoring and Evaluation, and knowledge capture and development.
