Susan Dupre has 20+ years experience in designing and facilitating innovative, participatory, real work methodologies to accomplish a variety of organization objectives such as: developing common ground vision and action, process re-design and/or improvement, re-structuring, and culture change. She uses processes that strengthen the kind of collaborative working relationships that make change possible and organizational goals actionable. Because successful achievement of community and organizational goals and objectives requires the committed participation of a "critical mass" of people, Susan specializes in approaches that can accommodate large groups of diverse stakeholders. Susan is available to consult with the Center for Collaborative Policy and its clients on participation projects.
Susan has a Masters Degree in Organizational Communications and a certificate in Total Quality Management. For several years, Susan taught courses at California State University, Sacramento in its Total Quality Management Program.
She was a contributor to a special edition of The Journal of Applied Behavioral Science: Special Issue on Large Group Interventions (December 1992), the recently published Handbook of Large Group Methods: Creating Systemic Change in Organizations and Communities (2006) and has a chapter in the 2007 release of the second edition of The Change Handbook.
