What’s next for organisation development?
Organisation development (OD) can play a vital role in enabling growth, longevity and relevancy within a business.
The skills of OD practitioners are in demand as organisations recognise that to adapt to the changing world of work, they need to transform their culture, capability, values and behaviours. Indeed, understanding culture and change are key knowledge areas for all people professionals, as we highlight in the updated CIPD Profession Map.
We’ve engaged with senior practitioners and thought leaders to invigorate debate around the critical questions, challenges and opportunities that exist in the OD space. This series examines the current state of play and emerging trends in OD, and considers how OD practitioners can play an integral role in organisational strategy in the future.
Check back regularly, as we’ll continue to add to the series.
