In this course, we discuss how Organization Development (OD) helps the people within an organization develop vision, understanding, clarity, and agility. 

We start with a brief overview of the OD perspective of the organization as a human system. This leads to a conversation about how the OD practitioner works within that system to facilitate the creation of a healthy and effective organization. Then we explore the role of the OD practitioner in impacting the system as a catalyst and an irritant.  This course serves to demonstrate how OD can be used to support people playing an active role in driving positive organizational change.
