Who should attend
Organisation Development: an overview is ideal for senior managers, senior HR practitioners, OD specialists, internal change agents and consultants.
About the course
Explore the role of the OD practitioner as well as the fundamentals of OD and its relevance to HR.
This two-day course will enable you to travel at high speed, from core OD theories, through to OD interventions; as well as focusing on the role of the OD practitioner.

The group discussions, interactive action planning, and case studies, will help you develop the advisory skills necessary in using diagnostic models to assess the health of your organisation; obtain data to decide how to initiate and manage change; and assess your own personal development needs within the context of an OD role.

- demonstrate understanding of the history and visions of OD and the role of the OD practitioner
- apply tools to diagnose an organisation’s effectiveness
- advise on the role of diagnostic models in assessing the health of the organisation
