What is Organizational Development?


Organizational Development (OD) is the use of behavioral science principles to improve an organization’s effectiveness in reaching its goals. OD is a planned process, often undertaken at a time when an organization needs to make a major change. In OD, the focus for change is the group rather than the individual.

PSP’s OD services begin with the assessment of an organization’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT Analysis) in the light of its stated goals. An Employee Retention Survey, Training Needs Analysis, and/or Performance Measurement process can be part of this assessment.

Then, interventions are designed to accelerate an organization’s progress toward those goals. PSP’s OD interventions include such activities as team building, supervisory and management training, successor development programs, performance reward programs, and leadership development programs.

It used to take me all weekend to write Performance Appraisals on my direct reports.  With the tools from PSP, I was able to complete the process in 90 minutes—with better impact.
