Organizational Development (OD) focuses on foundational change for long-lasting solutions to large complex problems. Typically, OD is used to bring about a major shift in an organization’s culture, systems or processes. In many organizations, OD is combined with strategic business planning as a way to ensure the strategic plans are coupled with a clear map for systemic implementation throughout the organization. As with any large-scale initiative within an organization, it is critical that any OD initiatives have commitment throughout all levels and are supported by the highest levels within the organization. OD works by leveraging the transformation of an organization’s human resource, expanding employees’ ideas, beliefs, and behaviors so that they can handle new challenges. Also, an organization’s most valuable resource, its people, are engaged throughout the process by participating in problem diagnosis, considering and developing solutions, identifying objectives, implementing change and evaluating results. The goal is to enrich the organization by increasing the capability of people to handle complex change in the future.
