OD Book CoP
Event Title Value Based Metrics for Improving Results

The field of organization development (OD) is often faulted for not producing measurable results, mostly because OD consultants don’t insist that the client clarify what results they are expecting which should be a part of the “contracting phase”. 
Mel Schnapper, Ph.D. will present his book: Value-Based Metrics for Improving Results, which describes a methodology for measuring any qualitative and/or quantitative dimension of ANY performance for ANY function at ANY level. More about Mel at: www.schnapper.com.
This presentation will focus on creating standards of performance using precise and rigorous qualitative and quantitative metrics.  Mel will have participants explore his “3Ms: Measure, Manage and Magnify” methodology to participants’ current and/or anticipated projects to show, in measurable terms what the client is paying for and how the value of the services can be increased without increasing cost.

For a sneak peek at Mel’s approach, you can go to: the publisher’s brief summary and complete outline of his book, at http://www.jrosspub.com/value-based-metrics-for-improving-results.html,  For a webinar based on the book, go to: http://dcastd.adobeconnect.com/p4wx2xj43zh/
In all of his work, Mel first clarifies what value the client is looking for and how to measure when that value has achieved the intended results.  Mel prides himself on being able to measure anything!!
