Organizational Development

Leading Through Change - 2013 PSU Organizational Development Summer Intensive

Organizational Development (OD) is the process of increasing organizational effectiveness through employee development. These changes are implemented by planned interventions including coaching and training, succession planning and performance management. OD is a body of knowledge that views each organization as a complex system that requires effective strategic planning, organizational design, and implementation to produce optimal results. These activities are generally developed at the executive level of an organization and executed by trained and knowledgeable HR and/or OD managers. 

We are excited to announce the Portland State 2013 Organizational Development Summer Intensive. Our certificate program teaches you the skills to effectively implement interventions and manage change in your organization.
