The course embodies the following features:
1. EXPERIENCE-BASED LEARNING APPROACH
The theories and principles are illustrated through analyses of actual OD programs that have been or are being implemented by participant’s respective organizations. Learning transcends the usual classroom teaching as participants get to learn more from insights that are drawn from real-life experiences. Case analysis will be guided by applicable OD frameworks.
2. GUIDED ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT PLANNING AND ANALYSIS
During the training, participants will go through a series of guided OD Planning and Analysis sessions. Their personal experiences with their agencies’ OD initiatives provide avenue for introspection, reflection and in-depth analysis as well as germane application of OD strategies and principles.
3. DEDICATED SESSIONS ON SELECTED SOFT SKILLS
Subscribing to the popular notion that “man is the prime mover of any endeavor,” the course will give special focus on the Change Agent’s roles/functions and the competencies needed for the successful performance. There will be dedicated sessions on soft skills, particularly on communication, facilitation.
4. OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP AN OD PROJECT FOR THE AGENCY
Participants shall be afforded a chance to design an OD Project along with a Communication Plan in support thereof. While this is designed as a culminating activity, participants may elect to craft a “real” OD Project and gain from the comments/insights provided by the panel of experts who will sit as reactors to each group’s OD project plan.
