Organisational Development Community of Practice Meeting

Join us at our inaugural East of England meeting on Tuesday 21st June, 09:00 – 12:00. Click here to book your place!

Do you lead on change management, service development or workforce transformation? If so, you are likely to also be working in Organisation Development (OD)! 

In response to requests from colleagues, the East of England Systems Leadership Team at the Leadership Academy, are supporting the establishment of an OD Community of Practice.  This community is not just for those who have OD in their job title or who may be a professional HR & OD practitioner, this community is wider for all colleagues working in Care, Health and the VCSE sector to come together and share learning on how to take forward and support Organisation Development in the six Integrated Care Systems in East of England. 

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development describe OD as “Organisation Development (OD) is where interventions are developed with a ‘systematic mindset’ – they create alignment with the organisations goals and activities in a planned and intentional way

Roffey Park define OD as “the work of facilitating organisational success, by aligning structural, cultural and strategic realities of work to respond to the needs of an ever-evolving business climate”.

Come and join us at our first virtual event where you will join a masterclass around facilitating collaboration including local case studies and examples from across EoE, have an opportunity to network with others and find out more about support for your own personal development. We will introduce you to the OD App, a new web based professional development tool, and launch Action Learning Sets.
