A Guide to all Things Organisation Development

Organisation Development (OD) is a growing field of Human Resource Management. It has its foundations in a number of behavioural and social sciences. OD practitioners are unashamedly humanistic in their approach to change management and delivering sustainable organisational performance.


Very often organisations invest heavily in transformational change programmes or OD interventions that fail to deliver performance in a sustainable way. OD believes that every part of an organisation is integral to a system that relies on and impacts other elements of the internal and external environment in which the organisation operates.

OD helps organizations deliver sustainable performance improvement through people. Those who practice OD usually have a strong humanistic and democratic approach to organizational change. People and collaboration are key features of any OD intervention.

Whether you are looking for help, a fellow practitioner, a student or just curious, the purpose of this website is to provide the ultimate guide to all things OD.
