The field of organization development (OD) has a rich history replete with triumph and innovation. Yet recently the field appears to be undergoing an identity crisis — what is the best way forward? Many scholars are revisiting dialogical and social constructionist approaches as offering promise in OD theory and research (Bushe & Marshak, 2009; McLean, 2005; Rothwell, Stavros, Sullivan, & Sullivan, 2010; Van Nistelrooij & Sminia, 2010). But we also need the fresh eye of the practitioner on new applications of OD to the business world.
Organization Development: A Practitioner’s Guide for OD and HR is written as a hands-on guide for those who lead system-wide organizational change efforts. Co-authors Mee-Yan Cheung-Judge and Linda Holbeche are experienced UK consultants, as such, they bring a much needed practitioner’s perspective to implementing organization development efforts.
