Organizational Development and Change, Introduction


Students in this course study the planned, systemic change interventions that increase effectiveness and enhance individual development. In addition to gaining exposure to evidence-based models for effective organizations, students practice the art of navigating through ambiguity. They learn to work with different personality types.

It provides an overview of the field of OD, the nature of change, and the role of the OD practitioner.
