What is organization development1

What is Organization Development?

  • What is it that you and your group want to accomplish?

  • Talk about our work only makes sense if it starts with a connection to your problem, challenge, or opportunity – that practical matter that you are addressing

  • What is it that you and your group want to accomplish?

Falcarragh Institute, Ltd.

Client and consultant dilemma

Client and Consultant Dilemma

  • You cannot understand what you need to learn

    • I see something you need to learn. I can’t tell you that in a way that you could understand it; if I could you would not need me or my help

  • You can only learn it by educating yourself

    • I cannot teach this to you

  • You can only educate yourself in action – by beginning to do what you don’t understand

    • I can create experiences and support you as guide

  • You must be willing to have the experiences I suggest without knowing what it will be like

  • You must expect that the results will be greater than the cost of commitment

Adapted from Schön, D. (1987). Educating the reflective practitioner. San Francisco, Jossey-Bass


How we do our work

How We Do Our Work

  • Start with what you want to get done

  • Support your group to reflect-in-action, i.e., while working on what you want to get done, to learn or discover what is missing

  • 5 Fundamental Questions

    • Tools associated with each question

  • Create the conditions and experiences for your group to answer those questions

5 questions for reflection in action

5 Questions for Reflection in Action

Falcarragh Institute, Ltd.


Organization development

“What”

Specific outcome or result that is described in a way so that all agree: “Yes, we will all know it if you see it.”

  • The kinds of outcomes or results could be anything from the overall results for a year (big What) to an outcome on a small, short-term project (little What)

Falcarragh Institute, Ltd.


Organization development

“How”

Goals

  • Three things we will accomplish this year, their combined results will produce the overall desired results for the year

    Distribution of resources

  • Money, time, people, equipment, physical space, etc.

  • Business plan, strategy,

    Specific plan of action

  • What, by whom, by when

    Work flow/structure

  • Roles, responsibilities

Falcarragh Institute, Ltd.


Organization development

“When”

By (a specific point in time), we will see (this evidence)

  • The specific point in time could be a milestone showing progress toward – or -- the ultimate end date itself

Falcarragh Institute, Ltd.


Organization development

“Who”

Work, learn, communicate, and relate to one another

Falcarragh Institute, Ltd.


Four processes who we want to be

Four Processes: Who We Want To Be

“Why”

Overriding purpose

  • Reason for being

    Values

  • Like an organization’s guidance system, keep you on course

Falcarragh Institute, Ltd.


Reflect in action if you are

Reflect in Action if you are…

  • Doing something that you have never done before (no experience/theory to fall back on)

  • Stuck

  • Trying to reconcile different takes on the problem

  • Dealing with competing solutions

  • Handling a “wicked organizational problem,” that is, one that keeps recurring and seems to defy resolution

Falcarragh Institute, Ltd.


We will we know if we succeed when

We will we know if we succeed when…

  • When you say so
