Over 140 OD practitioners participated in the third State of OD Practice Forum on 31 May 2012. This annual event was jointly organised by the PS21 Office, Public Service Division and the Centre for OD*, Civil Service College. Key highlights of the event are captured in this video.
In his opening address, Head of Civil Service, Mr. Peter Ong, shared about the growing need for the practice of OD to help organisations make sense of their issues and challenges, and to design appropriate interventions to align internal systems and achieve organisational goals. He also encouraged practitioners to build their capabilities, and reminded them that they are not alone in their OD journey as they have support from the community.
Participants also heard updates on the progress and plans to develop and support the OD practice in the public service, and engaged in conversations with one another.
*Since 1 April 2013, Centre for OD has become part of the Institute of Leadership and Organisation Development (ILOD). For any enquiries, please write to us at cscollege_ILOD@cscollege.gov.sg.
