IMO is an institute with the mission to professionally support  the development processes in organizations. “Inspired change” is one of our ideals, which we want to achieve together with our clients.

IMO is founded in 2004 by Adriaan Bekman. The characters I M O refer to the Dutch words Instituut voor Mens en Organisatieontwikkeling (meaning: Institute for Human and Organization development). A brochure about IMO is available.
