OD Practitioner Case Studies: Use of Self and Scanning Organizations as Accelerators of Systems Change

This session will explore case studies of how OD practitioner skills and frameworks were applied to accelerate positive organization change. Examples to be explored are:

  • A healthcare organization’s struggle to manage their workforce’s performance in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter
  • An energy company’s wake-up call after observing BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico

Participants will have an opportunity workshop how to accelerate a change in their own or a client’s organization.
