Imagine the productivity if every team within your organization was a finely-tuned machine, with all the individual parts working perfectly in concert with each other, each doing its part toward a common goal and coming together perfectly every time. It’s an interesting idea, but of course parts of finely-tuned machines don’t have personalities, or life experiences, or opinions, or different ideas about where the machine should be headed.
Every organization can use some help focusing the direction of groups or departments. Organizational Development (OD) is a term that encompasses numerous tools, techniques, processes and methodologies that help an organization develop into a more effective one by focusing groups toward a common direction and helping them learn how to overcome communication or interpersonal issues.
