ATLANTA, Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Google Cloud Platform recently announced its new partnership with the O'Briant Group, LLC as part of its initiative to promote cultures of innovation within the education system. Because of their proven track record success in leading transformational change within schools, the O'Briant Group earned the Google Cloud Partner Specialization.

The Google Cloud Partner Specialization Program is designed to provide Google Cloud customers with qualified partners that have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven success in specialized solution and service areas. Partners that have achieved this specialization align with Google's Transformation Progress Map to help schools and districts through systemic change across the areas of vision, learning approach, technology, funding, community and culture.

The O'Briant Group's approach to cultural transformation starts with the human side of innovation — design thinking. Led by former Googler Erin O'Briant, MFA, MLA, the O'G team of innovators advise clients on how to apply design thinking principles in order to create sustainable cultural change within both educational systems and companies.

The O'Briant Group's capabilities also include:

  • Support for in-house innovation leaders and design thinking facilitators
  • Integrating design thinking principles into existing innovation efforts
  • On-site and off-site consulting in the United States, UK, and Australia

Here's what clients have to say about the O'Briant Group:

"Working with the O'Briant Group … has certainly given us as public educators a refreshing approach to the way we go about learning as professionals. ...They've allowed us to drive the processes that we need to look at but they've kept the structure for us in terms of helping us understand how to use the design thinking model to come up with new, creative solutions. [Working with them] has been a great opportunity and a great experience for us." — Dr. April Howard, Superintendent, Jackson County School System

O'G: The human side of innovation.
The O'Briant Group is based in Atlanta, Georgia
