Organisational development (OD) aligns an organisation’s people, systems and structure with its strategy to enable better business performance. It is a process of continuous and proactive organisational change that can result in reduced staff turnover, increased productivity and sustained competitive advantage.

However, many organisations are not using an integrated OD approach. Those working with OD often struggle to articulate exactly what it is and the value it offers.

The Organisational Development masterclass helps you develop an integrated approach to OD and show its value to your organisation. It provides a strong theoretical and practical basis for practitioners.

Key benefits

For businesses
