What does OD have in common with other disciplines and what makes it different from them?
Our November 20 program meeting was on “Six Ways to Do OD” and featured small group discussion on “Directing an OD Function,” “OD and Coaching,” “OD and Evaluation,” “OD Consulting,” “OD within HR,” and “Virtual OD”. Following, we had reports on best ideas and discussed some of the commonalties and new learning discovered.
One theme that was cited in several of the reports is the overlap between OD and other fields of practice. We’ve thus taken as our Question of the Month the general issue of “What does OD have in common with other disciplines and what makes it different from them?”
