More and more, today’s executives are confronted with complex issues that require different analysis grids and new approaches. They are dedicated to fostering a strong culture within their organization, but this is difficult to accomplish in a market characterized by economic turmoil. They need support to overcome these challenges and up their game. And increasingly they require the guidance and insight of organizational development (OD) specialists and practitioners to help find and implement innovative solutions.

This program is designed to bolster your OD capabilities so you can meet expectations in this regard. It is an excellent complement to the Intensive Organizational Development Program: Taking Your Practices to the Next Level, which has proven to be hugely popular over the past six years, although it is not a prerequisite per se.

The four strategic themes explored in this program correspond to the main concerns voiced by OD professionals themselves. You will return to your organization with a renewed set of tools and methods for bringing these issues to the attention of your management.


Goals

Provide an environment where you can learn, think about, share and work out concrete solutions with your fellow professionals interested and/or involved in organization development in order to:

  • Strengthen your role as a strategic partner
  • Reinforce your strategic thinking using relevant concepts, models and analysis grids
  • Optimize the impact of your contributions at the management level
  • Develop an OD-oriented learning community.

Is this for you?

  • HR and OD professionals
  • Managers serving in an advisory or support capacity

Special features

  • Intensive program, with four days of training over eight weeks (every second Friday).
  • Theme-based approach revolving around four strategic challenges for today’s executives.
  • Each theme addressed by leading experts.
  • Opportunity for participants to share their best practices.
