Practicing Organization Development, Third Edition
Building on its reputation as the most practical, comprehensive, useful, and clearly written handbook on organization development (OD), this new edition of Practicing Organization Development has been thoroughly revised updated to reflect the most recent developments in the field. With contributions from leading OD practitioners and scholars, the book includes a review of the core elements of OD that offers new information on a variety of topics such as leadership transformation and development, questions of inquiry, multi-level strategic change, global compact, positive states of organizing, and OD's role in creating a structure of belonging.
Praise for the Third Edition of Practicing Organization Development
"Nowadays a good roadmap is needed to navigate all the roads and this book does a great job of telling the reader of the variety of destinations that can be reached and how to reach them . . . .this book is as complete a compendium on what OD is and can be as is currently available."
Dr. Edgar H. Schein, Sloan Fellows Professor of Management Emeritus, MIT Sloan School of Management
"Many of our organizations are in a crucible. Crucibles are utterly transformational experiences from which one emerges either hopelessly broken or powerfully emboldened to learn and lead. This book is a bright signal of what our change field has to assist you to become successful and make a difference in all you do."
Dr. Warren Bennis, professor and founding chairman of The Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California
