Description

This hugely popular three day programme aimed at newcomers to OD in the NHS, or those who wish to refresh their knowledge, runs again for 2017/2018.

The programme consists of three full days, over a period of four months.

The dates are:

  • 12th September,

  • 15th November

  • 13th December.

***Delegates must be able to attend all three dates***


Organisation development is a particular approach to change and improvement. It can be defined as an approach…

“that applies behavioural science knowledge and practices to help organizations achieve greater effectiveness, including financial performance and improved quality of work life” (Cummings and Worley 2009, 9th Edition)

In simple terms OD is “Business Improvement through people”. Within this programme we are seeking to support practitioners who are new to OD, and those who have found themselves with OD in their portfolio. The cohort will come together to learn, think and work together to understand the practice of OD more fully.

The programme has been designed and is delivered by Dr Maxine Craig. Maxine has a 35-year career working in and for the NHS, commencing her career as a nurse. She has worked in the field of OD since the mid 1990’s and for 13 years was a Head of OD in a large NHS Trust which was awarded HSJ Hospital of the Year. Maxine commenced the initial design of this programme in 2013 and has continued to develop and update it to ensure its relevance to our current context. More of Maxine’s profile can be found here should you want further detail http://linkedin.com/in/maxinecraig

The programme runs over 3 days (with gaps between each day to facilitation assimilation into practice). The programme outline is below however a hallmark of the programme is that it is delivered as an ‘OD intervention’ and Maxine will ensure that the group has the opportunity to shape the content of days 2 and 3 to ensure it is fit for the group’s needs.
