Description - Reinventing Organization Development by David L. Bradford

When the practice of Organization Development emerged more than forty years ago the expectation was it would humanize the work place in ways that would release organizations' human potential to produce higher performance and greater customer satisfaction. In the beginning, OD consultants were frequently positioned high up the organization often as part of the executive hierarchy. In today's environment, the apparent need for the promise of OD has only increased. But OD hasn't lived up to its promise-or potential. Written by the luminaries in the field, this book examines why OD hasn't grown in importance. Why, in fact, has it shrunk, and importantly, what can OD professionals do about it?
