About Us


Pioneers of team based working, Affina Organisation Development (AOD) – previously Aston OD – was created in 2003 with the intention of translating research into practice.

Our aim is to help organisations to build in-house capacity for developing effective team working using evidence-based tools backed up by a cost-effective model of training, delivery and support.
