Foundations of Organizational Development
Organizational development (OD) focuses on aspects of organizational life, including culture, values, systems, and behavior with the goal of increasing organizational effectiveness and health through planned interventions in an organization’s processes or operations. Many human resource and management skills—including team building, coaching, training, and leadership development—have grown from, or are influenced by, OD. This foundational overview introduces the theories and concepts of organizational development. Develop OD vocabulary and build the skills and tools necessary for applying solutions in your organization.
