Description

OD for Non-OD Practitioners – Running for a second time, this previously sold-out workshop is aims to provide an opportunity for those who do not consider themselves Organisation Development practitioners to come along and explore what OD is and is not. The event will take place on the 26th January.

Organisation Development is the application of the behavioural sciences into the workplace and fundamentally is focused upon effective change and improvement in business performance. There are many modes of change agency and many, many books written about change. OD is a particular approach to change. With its roots in the emancipatory movement of the 60’s and the development of psychological approaches to change it offers those interested in change an opportunity to consider how to focus on highly engaging modes of change agency.

This workshop is aims to provide an opportunity for those who do not consider themselves Organisation Development practitioners to come along and explore what OD is and is not.
