Description

"An action research perspective on OD is one that encourages continual inquiry, development and curiosity in ourselves and in those we work with, rather than seeing OD as a set of techniques" Peter Reason

Workforce Scotland invites you to take part in 'Things are changing! AI, driverless cars, self-organising teams – what’s the need for OD in the emerging future?', shaping how we work collectively to develop the public service workforce of the future. This will be an opportunity to share what is working, what we need to build on, and what bold steps to we need to take to take to make best use of collective resources.

This event is aimed at those we who would recognise that they have a role to develop organisations whether formally in an OD or learning and development (LD) role within public services or increasingly carrying out these roles and tasks as part of their everyday work

Over the past few years a number of vibrant networks, collaborations, and learning and development opportunities have emerged, seeking to address diverse organisational and cross-boundary development needs. Among the many offers there are local OD networks (Local Government, NHS, Health & Social Care) facilitation networks, leadership development networks, the Dialogue Community of Practice, Scottish Coaching Collaborative network, a network for accredited resilience coaches, and the Fire Starter Festival.

We feel that now is the time to reflect on current OD related offers and ask some questions:

  • What skills do individuals need to support them working in this complex public service system?

  • What processes and opportunities are needed to deliver national/collaborative work?

  • What interventions are needed - training, peer learning?

  • What resources could we share?

  • What do we need to let go of?
