What healthy organisations achieve.
The biggest challenge after success is shutting up about it.

The Three Hurdles
Although the CDI Way has a proven track record in almost any industry, many leaders still struggle to embrace the power of organisational health, because they quietly believe they are too sophisticated, too busy, or too unique to bother with it. Before leaders can tap into the power of organisational health, they must overcome the three hurdles that prevent them from embracing it:
Well, let’s try to quantify the impact. Most of our clients have been on this journey for more than a decade and the following results have been shared at our annual CDI Summit that has hosted more than 5000 delegates over the past 20 years:
“CDI is the reason Dynamic Automotive Systems still exists today. All other companies were closing down around us.”Mr Joseph FihlaManufacturing Manager from Dynamic Automotive Systems, SA
“It is important to realize that it is not just one thing, but a combination of all these aspects of the CDI Way that brings success and sustainability.”Mr Brandon MillerManufacturing Director, Fair Cape Dairies, SA
“We have developed, through the CDI Way, a passion for what we are doing at Sugarbird. We do not talk of problems but opportunities and look at how to turn things around to get better results. We now thrive on turning problems into opportunities.”Rynhard van der MerweSugarbird Confectionaries, SA
“We have achieved remarkable results and the list of implemented process improvements seems endless. What is most remarkable though is that the majority of these improvements are implemented by the teams themselves. The level of ownership is exceptional.”Wallies UysDistell Primary Production, Worcester, SA
“Despite good gains in terms of tangible savings, the key improvement we have seen is the engagement of our staff with the business. We use the programme to allow staff to reach their full potential in the business. Engagement is key to our business success and we have seen staff lift their performance and contribution to the business hugely. The CDI Way has been immensely useful in providing a clear structure into which business objectives and company values can be driven and individual performance can be measured, in a way not possible without CDI.”Glen RyanGroup Operations Director, BrewGroup, AU
“The MBU process (CDI Way) provides us the tools for a better tomorrow.”Dr Magdi BatatoExecutive Vice President, Nestlé S.A, Head of Operations
“The CDI Way is now completely embedded and part of our operating culture. The continuous improvement focus it has brought to Safety, Quality, Speed and Cost has made a significant improvement to our financial results and to the skill and engagement level of our people. CDI’s strong mentoring approach means that the team now own the process, but we can always rely on CDI to challenge us to set new higher standards. They have taken us well down the path towards world class.”Brian DewarCEO, EasiYo, NZ
