SMU OD Webinar 5

Organisational Development, Change and Transformation

Why the values and practice of OD are crucial for the future of work

22 June 2022 at 17:00 SGT

Organisational Development, Change and Transformation

Digitisation, hybrid-working, fragile economies and public health concerns are just a snapshot of challenges facing organisations in a post-pandemic workplace.  To face the future with confidence, organisations need to respond quickly to enable their people to deal with change and transformation.  Establishing successful organisational development interventions will be crucial to this.

In this session, we will explore the values that underpin organisational development and how OD Practitioners embody these values in their day-to-day practice.  We’ll explore the foundations of the field of organisational development, discuss global perspectives and consider how this impacts the values and practice of doing OD in a contemporary workplace.   If you are responsible for developing human capital strategies or responsible for change in your organisation, then join this webinar and share your perspective with an audience of your peers.

This webinar is a collaboration between SMU, who is at the forefront of supporting organisations in meeting their upskilling and reskilling goals, and Roffey Park Institute, an international centre of excellence in organisational development.

Roffey Park and SMU’s Academy’s Advanced Certificate in Organisational Development, a 6-module programme, is open for registration now.
