A journey towards organisation development

A journey towards organisation development Purpose – This article aims to introduce organization development (OD) and its potential application in organizational environments by discussing core concepts, practice models and providing guidance on evaluation and development. Design/methodology/approach – The methodology includes reflections on OD models and practice based on experience as an OD practitioner in the international non‐governmental organization (INGO) sector. Findings – It is difficult to describe a definitive view of OD because OD practitioners do different things in different contexts. Nevertheless, there are evolving models of OD derived from practice that can guide future thinking, practice, evaluation and development in this field. Originality/value – The paper provides a range of models, perspectives and approaches derived from OD practice in international non‐governmental organizations (INGOs). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Industrial and Commercial Training Emerald Publishing

Design/methodology/approach – The methodology includes reflections on OD models and practice based on experience as an OD practitioner in the international non‐governmental organization (INGO) sector. Findings – It is difficult to describe a definitive view of OD because OD practitioners do different things in different contexts. Nevertheless, there are evolving models of OD derived from practice that can guide future thinking, practice, evaluation and development in this field. Originality/value – The paper provides a range of models, perspectives and approaches derived from OD practice in international non‐governmental organizations (INGOs).
