From our friends at ODN:
Topic: Defining OD: Happy Birthday Dick Beckhard
How to we define what we do and help leaders understand the impact we as practitioners can have? Have you ever struggled to explain the complexity of what we as practitioners can offer?
Richard Beckhard is well known as one of Organization Development’s pioneers. His definition of OD is broadly used and, in fact, featured on our OD Network website. What you may not know is that Beckhard was born on April 23rd. In honor of his birthday, let’s start with his definition of OD and have a conversation about how we apply that in our own practices – internal, external, with clients and in the classroom – to explain the value of the work we do.
