This Episode: How To Do Organisational Development

Lucinda returns to the “How To…” series with a focus upon how to do organisational development, everything from definition of the term itself, to the metrics we can use in order to ensure that we are using it effectively in order to improve and evolve our organisations.

Key Takeaways

  • Organisational development is about evolving, adapting or improving an organisation in order to achieve strategic goals.
  • Often, training systems are only targeted towards symptoms of under development, rather than providing a progressive course of change.
  • We should always look for the bigger picture in terms of development. The macro aims of improving should never detract from what we hope those aims will achieve in broader terms.
  • Motivation can often play a bigger part in people’s productivity than some lack of professional skills. If we are targeting skills and not motivation, then we may be missing a root cause.
