ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
OD Programs are long-term planned, sustained efforts. Such efforts begin when a leader identifies internally / seeks external agency to coordinate an undesirable situation and seeks to change it.

THE PROGRAM MANAGEMENT COMPONENT
MODEL FOR MANAGING CHANGE
Phases of OD Programs:
- Planning Change
Contributing to Effective Change Management:
- Motivating Change
- Creating a Vision
- Developing Political Support
- Managing the Transition
- Sustaining Momentum
THE CHANGING ENVIRONMENT
- The most innovative and successful organizations will be those that derive their strength and vitality from adaptable, committed team players at all levels and from all specialties, not from the omniscience of the hierarchy.
- Organizations will be flatter, with smaller central staffs and with more delegation to small groups and units.
- High-performance organizations focusing on the customer and continuous quality improvement and placing high value on human resources, diversity, and high-performance teams will be the norm.
- Indian organizations too have realized this and are readying themselves with skill set upgradation and sweeping changes in the mindsets of executives.
- OD will be a major player in assisting organizations to shift to and sustain this new paradigm and to help invent even more effective paradigms in the future.
FUNDAMENTAL STRENGTHS OF OD
- The central strength of OD is that the processes are fundamentally sound. These processes include careful tuning in to the perceptions and feelings of people; involving people in diagnosing the strengths and weaknesses of their organizations and making action plans for improvement; redesigning work so that it is more meaningful and motivating; training people toward a participative, open team leadership mode; and using qualified third parties.
- A second fundamental strength has to do with the political, government milieu. OD is highly compatible with democratic government structures and processes that are well established in many parts of the world and emerging elsewhere.
- OD practice has been expanding in the last two or three decades to create a blending of attention to people-oriented processes with attention to the design of the human-technical system.
- Almost everywhere organizations are recognizing the need for assistance in getting the right people together to talk constructively about important organizational and trans organizational matters, and for developing processes for making things better.
Thus, OD clearly has an enormous and vital role to play in the for futuristic Growth.
- Leadership and Values – For OD to flourish, top-management-CEOs, directors, top executives, including the H.R executive-and OD consultants must place high value on strong individual, team, and organizational performance coupled with people oriented values.
- OD Training – The future will hold a need for availability of T-group training – as a training intervention, not as an organizational intervention – particularly for both aspiring OD practitioners and managers.
- Interdisciplinary Nature of OD – OD’s future, to a significant extent, is related to other disciplines. OD has been a highly interdisciplinary, eclectic field. It has been built from theory, research, and practice in social psychology, adult education, counseling, HRM, social work and other fields.
- Diffusion of Technique – OD techniques and approaches have been widely disseminated in society, In large measure this positive development demonstrates that OD processes are being widely perceived as having considerable value.
- Integrative Practice – OD practitioners need to be as knowledgeable as possible about structural interventions and integrations such as Total Quality Management (TQM), Quality of Work Life (QWL), and reengineering programs in particular.
- Mergers, Acquisitions and Alliances – Interventions that have grown out of the OD field can be highly relevant in helping two or more organizational cultures meld and in ameliorating the potential dislocation and pain that can occur when organizations are combined in mergers, acquisitions and alliances.
- Rediscovering and Recording History – The history of OD is indispensable for retaining and improving effective OD interventions and approaches.
AND BELIEFS IN OD
VALUES, ASSUMPTIONS AND BELIEFS IN OD
- Values, assumption and beliefs are integral to a human being and also to an organization.
- OD values tend to be humanistic, optimistic and democratic.
- The values, assumptions and beliefs of an organization shape the goals and methods in the case of OD.
- The structure and design of OD becomes the ‘culture of the organization.
VALUES – AS APPLIED IN ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT
- Values also known as core values of the organization are the beliefs of the management and the culture it expects its employees to possess , in order to achieve the goals.
- Both the means and the ends are important. Achieving the ends at the cost of the means is not acceptable in many organizations.
- The vision and mission should be in line with an organization’s values.
- Values are trait or qualities that clearly articulate the leadership thoughts to encourage acceptable behavior to achieve its goals and mission.
- It becomes part of the organization and is known both internally and externally. Over time values become the culture of the organization.
TYPES OF VALUES
- Humanistic values give importance to the individual, ensure respect and dignity; assumes that everyone has intrinsic worth and view all people as capable of growing and developing.
- Optimistic values requires that one sees all people as good, that progress is possible in human affairs, and that rationality, reason, and goodwill are the tools for making progress.
- Democratic values assert the sanctity of the individual, the right of people to be free from arbitrary misuse of power, the importance of fair and equitable treatment for all, and the need for justice through the rule of law and due process.
IMPLICATIONS OF OD ON INDIVIDUALS
- In organizations there are two basic assumptions about individuals. They are:
- People want to grow and develop
- People are capable of making a greater contribution.
- Eg. Mr. Raman Roy the father of Indian BPO industry has stated that nobody knows the job better than the person responsible for doing the job. No manager or leader can know the job better than the individual responsible for the job. Also that same individual is the only one capable of improving things and making it better.
IMPLICATIONS OF OD ON GROUPS
- There are several assumptions about groups. They are:
- The supervisor and employee relationship is critical, as it impact employee satisfaction and employee competence
- People want to be accepted as part of one or more groups.
- Each team member is capable of making a much larger contribution than what the other team members can imagine.
- Leader alone is not enough to address all the aspects of his team. The team members also contribute to enabling the leader.
- Attitudinal and motivational problems in organization require interactive and transactional solutions.
- Greater acceptance of each other can resolve the most complex of the issues. Therefore always focus on the issue and not the person associated with the issue.
