Organizational development (OD) is an effort to increase an organization’s effectiveness and viability and can involve the whole organization. Organisational development (OD) can be used as a proactive, continuous approach to facilitate better business performance. It can create a culture shift, reducing staff turnover and making an organisation more productive – for short term performance improvement and long term capability development. Despite this many organisations are not currently utilising an integrated OD approach, and HR professionals and others working with OD often struggle to articulate exactly what OD is and the value it offers.

You will learn how to define and position the contribution of Organizational development in your organisation and articulate this in the workplace, building your own credibility. This course gives you not only the knowledge and skills needed but also the understanding and confidence to use this, with traction, back in your organisation.

Through theory, practical examples and discussion this five-day course will cover:

  • What Organizational development is and isn’t (with context)
  • Linking strategy and execution – with a focus on tools, tactics and tips for driving value
  • How Organizational development is approached in other organisations and how to use it effectively in your own organisation
  • How to drive and communicate the benefits of OD within your organisation.
