Mark LaScola Among the First Certified Organization Design Professionals

Mark LaScola was granted certification by the Organization Design Community’s (ODC’s) Certification Program for Organization Design Professionals (CODP) for his professional accomplishments and expertise in organization design.

PHOENIX, USA – MARCH 30, 2018 – Local business Leader and organization design expert Mark LaScola, Managing Principal of Phoenix-based ON THE MARK, has achieved certification by the Certification Program for Organization Design Professionals (CODP). Certification distinguishes LaScola from many others by delivering the highest quality of cross-industry solutions to clients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.

Status as a Certified Organization Design Professional means that LaScola has met globally recognized standards for certification. Criteria for certification includes recognition of his achievement of planning and executing over 400 organization design projects around the globe over the last 28 years, investing thousands of hours doing this work, and fulfilling a set of organization design education courses and/or conferences.

The CODP program is a joint venture of three of the premier Organization Design Professional communities: Organizational Design Community (ODC), European Organisation Design Forum (EODF) and Organization Design Forum (ODF).

LaScola stands among the first Certified Organization Design Professionals of the program. Not all individual organization design professionals seek certification; not all that undergo the evaluation process are approved for certification.

"This certification means a lot to me for two reasons," stated LaScola. "Doing this kind of work is both my professional calling and my life’s work. Additionally, it’s been a goal of mine to establish a set of global standards in this field that is embraced across multiple professional organizations, while serving to distinguish competent practitioners, researches and professors from the masses."
