CRF’s Response: Our view is that a new, refined, reinvigorated OD is called for and we have created this OD Manifesto as a call for debate, discussion and – most importantly – action.
The manifesto was launched at a one-day masterclass event in November 2019. The session explored OD in today’s business context and the tools for effective OD practice and how to deploy them within the business – you can review the Post Meeting Notes here.
