Organization Development is a one-stop guide to the world of planned change. Organization development has a powerful and influential heritage, solid core, evolving applications and approaches, and a vital role to play in today's global, fast-paced world of constant change. This volume immerses readers deeply in organization development's power and possibilities.
Newcomers to the field can read the book cover to cover and explore organization development's foundation, scope, focus, purpose, and methods. Experienced consultants and change agents will find chapters that capture best thinking on key topics--resources for fine-tuning skills, learning about intervention options, envisioning organization development's future, or reflecting on the larger issues in growth and change. Leaders and managers will find the resources they need to understand the route to organizational health and effectiveness, and to develop, launch, and nourish successful change efforts.
This is the third book in the Jossey-Bass Reader series. The collection of chapters will introduce you to the key thinkers and contributors in organization development including Ed Lawler, Peter Senge, Chris Argyris, Richard Hackman, Jay Galbraith, Cooperrider, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Bolman & Deal, Kouzes & Posner, and Ed Schein, among others. The editor's interludes and organization of the book will help you appreciate the foundations and the growth of OD as a field and as a method of planned change.
Designed for use in undergraduate and graduate programs in organization development, management, human resource development, and industrial and organizational psychology, Organization Development provides readers with an overview of the field and acquaints them with the basic principles, practices, values, and skills of OD. Covering every aspect of the work of an OD professional and featuring numerous illustrative case studies, it shows how OD professionals actually get work and what the first steps in any OD effort should be.
Author Gary McLean surveys different ways to assess an organizational situation—including a comparison of the Action Research and Appreciative Inquiry models—and provides forms for devising an action plan based on that assessment. He then looks at how to choose and implement a range of interventions at different levels, as well as how to evaluate the results of an intervention.
Organization Development goes beyond the organizational level to look at the application of OD on community, national, regional, and global levels. And it successfully combines theory and practice; process and outcomes; performance and affective results; effectiveness and efficiency.
