What We Do
WhiteSpace Management Consulting Pte. Ltd. provides organisational development (OD) solutions to partner organisations for growth. We specialise in building culture, managing transitions and leadership development. We believe that positive change can accelerate if there is an awakening to the potential that lies within individuals and systems. Possibilities are infinite when we draw from internal and external untapped grounds; human capital of all levels; and disciplined execution even within the white space.
White space can be defined as any area that falls outside the purview of formal structures. It can serve as a potential ground for innovations, deeper conversations and promising opportunities. On the contrary, if left mismanaged, white space may cause initiatives to “fall through the cracks” or even sabotage well-intentioned strategies. Find out more in our Reflections column on “Up Close with White Space” and understand how we can help ensure sustainability of interventions by managing the white space.

How We Work
Every client organisation is unique and brings with it strengths and challenges. We adopt a systemic and vision-focused approach when solutioning with clients, always considering the business case and psychology of people and team.
The process we adopt begins with understanding the business case through awakening the potential within self and organisation, assessing evidence, acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills, putting in place architecture to support it and actualising it through sheer discipline.
