Organisational development (OD) is important to ensure effective growth and longevity. It is essentially the process used to improve the overall effectiveness of an organisation through managing the behaviours of people within that organisation. But it is important to have the systems in place to allow change to be implemented and planned effectively. Systems that analyse real data, which can then be used to implement further change.
There’s a good chance you’re already doing some OD without even realising it by creating great teams and giving them the conditions in which to thrive and tweaking your systems to improve their effectiveness or resolve problems you have come across. But it’s equally important that your managers are aware of OD too – by explaining to them why OD is important and getting them on board with changes you wish to make, you’ll get reduced resistance to any changes, they’ll be advocates for what you want to do and it will make any changes occur more smoothly.
