Organisation Development (OD) is a field of practice focused on improving the performance and effectiveness of organisations whilst maintaining their health and sustainability, especially during times of change. It is rooted in the deep connection between business processes, structures, relationships and the people working with them.

OD practitioners work with organisational growth, maturity and impact using a human systems perspective. It is about building an agile, resilient and emotionally intelligent workforce by promoting compassionate, ethical and sustainable leadership and people practices.

This programme aims to increase your knowledge and understanding of OD as a discipline, providing opportunities to develop your skills and equip you with practical tools, thinking strategies and a strategic mindset that will shape your personal approach and fit your business context.

  • Practitioners working in the field of organisational development that want to develop and enhance their practice
