Both Ginger and John wrote the following about yours truly.

Roland Sullivan is the person who named ‘whole system transformation’ in the mid-1970’s. He has conducted literally hundreds of WST initiatives since then with small, family-owned businesses, large multi-national corporations, and even entire countries. As Co-Editor of each edition Practicing Organization Development, the ‘bible’ in the field of OD, he is mastering the field and knows virtually everyone leading in this work. Recently, he has begun to gather on video the important conceptual models of change and transformation, delivered by the most experienced consultants who use them. Based in Minneapolis, MN, Roland has been a tireless force in developing OD awareness and capability in Asia, especially China, India, Thailand and The Philippines, through an organization he co-founded, The Asia OD Network.
