President’s Message

Greetings Members!

Based on the highly enthusiastic response to the Organization Development Fundamentals Certificate Program, presented by Oregon ODN and Cascade Employers Association in October and November, we plan to hold it again next fall. Please let me know if you have interest or questions about it.

We had a lively interactive programming event yesterday that generated lots of ideas, including exploring how we apply our basic theories of change in our work. We plan to pick up this discussion at our next mastermind meeting. If you plan to attend, please register and give some advance thought to this issue.  See you next Thursday!

On Wednesday, February 12th, we will have an exciting event at Daimler. Sought-after international speaker and former Futurist and Chief Evangelist at Intel Corporation, Steve Brown, will lead a lively roundtable discussion of how trends shaping the future of work will impact our OD, HR, and training and development roles both inside organizations and as consultants. You can learn more about Steve here.

ODN Strategy: Where will we be in 2025?
The ODN Board has initiated a participative strategy-making process to chart the future of Oregon ODN. The core of the preparation work will be taken on by the Process Design Group, led by Helen Spector. For more information or to participate in this work, please contact Helen.
