This is the February meeting (and first of 2018!) for those interested in learning more about organizational development. For SIG information see our page here!
About the OD SIG:OD SIG gatherings are informal group discussions led by a senior-level OD/talent management practitioner. The discussion leader share stories and insights about their experiences, their backgrounds, how they got started and advanced within the discipline. Discussions are highly interactive. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions. Time is allotted for small group discussions, as well.
"Defining a Collaborative Change Management Strategy"
How do we know what the right intervention is, and how do we develop a consensus among senior management this is what to do?
David Chaudron, Ph.D
So often we hear about an organization implementing X, where is the latest buzzword of the day. This often evolves into MBBS(management by best seller), where the organizational head gets the idea to implement something that may or may not fit an organization’s needs. It’s a given that a particular set of techniques or interventions (strategic planning, teambuilding, Six Sigma, executive coaching) is a good thing to do some of the time: the question becomes, when?
David is facilitating a highly-interactive, scenario-based session that focuses on how to develop a collaborative OD change strategy. We all know that the the most effective solutions are those that integrate input from multiple sources. The problem is how to make sense of all that data. What choices do we have? Which solutions are best? What’s our plan? Who will support it? We will work to together using collaboration software to outline a strategy and change management plan for a hypothetical company. Please review the short video at https://www.organizedchange.com/how-consensus-builder-works.htm before you arrive. Doing so will help us do what we have to do in the time allowed.
You need to bring your laptops and your ideas. This should be fun and very interesting.
