Organisational development (OD) is a complex and sometimes under-appreciated activity. It requires that we understand the organisation as an integrated system. This includes the usual management functions – planning and strategic change, organising and improving business systems, service delivery and evaluation. OD however, seeks to integrate these with more relational aspects of organisational life - leadership, teamwork, capability, communication and culture. OD at its best is an overarching transformative strategy engaging individuals, teams and the organisation as a whole.
This video looks at a case study to show the effects of Applied OD in the workplace, including outlines and tips for team development.
