Organization Development Certificate Program – Starts October 7

Organization Development Certificate Program – Starts October 7
We are cancelling the fall OD Fundamentals Series due to low registration numbers. We believe that some of this low signup reflects the several very difficult elements in our current situation--Covid protocols, local protests, fires and smoke, and the intensifying stress of the coming election with the uncertainty about what comes next.
We have designed this series for up to 24 participants, and designed interaction among participants to provide a significant learning component. We will consider rescheduling at a later date when some of the current uncertainty has, we hope, resolved. Please watch for an future announcement for this program.
Those of you who have already paid should hear directly from Cascade (not OODN) about your registration.

The Oregon Organization Development Network (OODN) and Cascade Employers Association have joined forces to create the Organization Development Fundamentals Certificate Program.

Whether you are exploring Organization Development or are a new or seasoned consultant in the field, this highly interactive program provides the fundamentals, helps hone your skills all while you network with fellow professionals.

Topics include the roots, values and evolution of OD, the relationship between OD and HR, and the OD approach for project start-up phases, diagnosis, information analysis and feedback, developing and selecting solutions, implementation and results measurement, and consulting roles, coaching and the future of the field.

Each session offers presentations, participation and consideration of a relevant case study to carry the learnings through the course of a real project. The faculty includes experienced practitioners from both the OD and HR fields - managers sharing their insights from inside organizations and external consultants who come from a variety of change disciplines.

The individual sessions are as follows:

  • What the Heck is OD? Unlocking the Secret to Happy and Fulfilling Work
  • Crucial Consulting Partnerships – Human Resources and Organization Development
  • “What’s the Request and Who’s The Client?” Entry and Contracting
  • Accessing Insights into the System: Gathering and Analyzing Data
