    Organization Development is concerned with using planned and systematic approaches to help develop more effective organizations. This is done by taking an objective look at how an organization is operating, gathering information and then deciding on the most appropriate action to help that organization change and develop. 

    Written by two of the leading experts in the field, Organization Developmentdefines OD and describes how it can be used effectively in today's economy to create organizations which maximise organizational capability. The authors provide practical advice on using diagnostics techniques to identify an organization's needs and explain how to use them across a range of areas including change, culture and organization design.

    Bridging the gap between theory and practice, Organization Developmentprovides a wealth of helpful advice for OD practitioners, HR professionals and those with an interest in helping develop their organization.

  • Dr. Mee-Yan Cheung-Judge is the founder of Quality & Equality Ltd and the author of many organizational development articles. She speaks, writes and delivers most of the OD training programmes in the UK and was voted one of the 25 most influential thinkers in HR by HR Magazine in 2008.

    Linda Holbeche was previously Research and Policy Director at the CIPD and is currently an independent consultant and researcher in the fields of leadership, human resources, change management and sustainable high performance.

  • Cheung-Judge and Holbeche have included just enough of everything -- history, theory, practical application, the essentials of OD -- without drowning the reader in some of the irrelevancies that abound in other OD texts.
    Matt Minahan, President, MM & Associates

    In these leaner and leaner times, the practical guidance of this book ensures that OD/ HR professionals and organization leaders have the tools and know-how to create and sustain healthy organizations.
    Dean Royles, Director, NHS Employers

    In this edition, Cheung-Judge and Holbeche offer an even more comprehensive account of OD and HR in easy to read and practical terms. Purists in both fields will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that core principles have not been sacrificed with the addition of more contemporary theory and practice. Internal and external practitioners alike will appreciate this all in one reference.
    Mary Ann Rainey, PhD, Organizational Effectiveness Consultant and Executive Coach, MA Rainey Associates

    The authors have organized and integrated OD into an easily understood, practical book that is very useful to newly involved professionals from many fields. I especially appreciate the intentional relationship between HR and OD as the bridge to how much of this work will occur in the future and who will be doing it. 
    In comparison to many other texts on OD, this text stands out in its attention to the design function in interventions, the use of self, the practical, integrated way theory is discussed and summarized, and more focus on change, which is often assumed rather than discussed theoretically.
    David W. Jamieson, PhD, Professor & Department Chair, Organization Learning & Development, University of St Thomas

    The book comes into its own by clearly differentiating what benefits OD brings but being careful to point out that it is vital to go through a series of steps rather than trying to jump in mid way through as we're probably all tempted to do at times.
    HR Network (Scotland)

    The first edition of Organization Development: A Practitioner's Guide for OD and HR is a very useful compendium of theories, practices, and figures with well-informed guidance for practitioners. This new edition is even more so with expanded, updated, and new sections on complexity and chaos theories and approaches, Dialogic OD, the logistics and infrastructure that support change, behavioral change, organization agility and resilience, and employee engagement. Mee-Yan Cheung-Judge and Linda Holbeche have again produced a valuable handbook for both the beginning and experienced OD practitioner.
    John D. Vogelsang, PhD, Editor in Chief of the OD Practitioner
