Organization Development (OD) is the practice of helping organizations solve problems and reach their goals. A key emphasis in OD is assisting clients not just in meeting their goal but with learning new problem-solving skills they can use in the future. In these challenging economic conditions, many organizations often face difficulty with sustainability, efficiency, and thus, achieving their mission. We use organizational development to enhance sustainability, efficiency, and interconnectedness so that an organization can realize its mission and more strongly move towards its vision.
The process of improving effectiveness and efficiency begins with a needs assessment. This is performed by working collaboratively with leadership, personnel and customers/clients. Once the problem is identified, a plan is developed collectively to treat the underlying causes of the problem. This may be accomplished via data collection methods such as focus groups, surveys, and research. Areas of organizational development include, but are not limited to:
Organizational operations and processes.
Employee Manuals development.
Employee and management training.
Organizational planning and strategizing.
Executives and board of directors performance.

Expand your mind. Explore new perspectives. Experience a rigorous, relevant, and research-driven curriculum taught by world-class faculty (developers of OD Standard), and experts from across the globe. Plus, hear from business leaders sharing their real-world successes and failures. The OD Program gives you the power to drive results at the highest levels of global management.
Over the course of not more than two years, the OD Program will help you broaden your vision, navigate critical organization challenges, and ignite change both personally and professionally. You'll immerse yourself in a cutting-edge curriculum that emphasises in assisting clients not just in meeting their goal but with learning new problem-solving skills they can use in the future. You'll gain innovative, actionable organization development strategies and leadership development. And you'll interact with some of the world's most influential and innovative thought leaders and peers from around the world.

The ODCC Program absolutely met my needs and beyond. It took a future view of how technology can be used to assist the learning process of clients in the problem solving skills. My mates were diverse in thoughts and experiences and that added tremendously to my learning experience

Joyce Banzie, ODCP

An extremely informative course, well presented in layman's terms for the non-technical person. Thoroughly I enjoyed it
