Joyce Dudley is President and founder of Dudley Hamilton Associates, Inc. (DHA), a management consulting firm established in 1985. Ms. Dudley began her path toward creating a professional consulting firm by providing executive coaching, career development and change management services to clients in a range of sectors. Her mission was to create an organization development and change management firm, the impact of which would exceed the standards of the industry by approaching organizational change in a holistic and integrated fashion. Ms. Dudley believed then, as she does now, that by assessing the relationship between an organization’s business strategy and its individual and organizational dynamics, a consultant could identify customized approaches to lasting and effective change. For this reason, she resisted the niche marketing prevalent in the field, in which consultant firms are experts in narrow, specialized areas, and instead forged a broader path for Dudley Hamilton that has allowed the firm to add value by bringing a strong set of skills to the table. As a result, Dudley Hamilton has the capacity to diagnose and advise clients in the areas of strategic planning, organizational change, leadership and staff development, workforce diversity, and building internal and external alliances.
