MHR 850 Organization Development

Organization Development (OD) is the system-wide application of behavioural science knowledge to the planned change of strategies, structures and processes in ways that engage organization members and lead to improvement of the human condition and organizational effectiveness. This is an upper level course that requires students to possess strong foundations in both organizational behaviour and change management. The course is highly experiential and includes a consulting project in which students, in small teams, conduct a comprehensive organizational diagnosis and make recommendations to improve the effectiveness of a local organization. The course also develops the student’s knowledge and competencies in intervention techniques such as OD contracting, process facilitation, team building and inter-group conflict resolution.
