Survey – OD Values for the Future
ISODC members are invited to participate in a survey regarding the OD values for the future.
We are looking for volunteers to participate in a 3-round survey study to identify organization development (OD) values for the future. The idea for this study began during the 2nd OD Gathering, attended by approximately 100 OD practitioners and researchers.
Given the fast-changing world, the purpose of this study is to work with a diverse group of OD practitioners and researchers, from around the world, to reach initial consensus on OD values for the future with labels, definitions, and behavioral indicators.
We will share the results of this study at the 3rd OD Gathering in December 2019 and disseminate them to the OD community at large for feedback.
The research team adopted the following perspectives in the design of this study.
- We are identifying values of the field of OD for the future.
- OD values should guide how we practice OD.
- OD values can distinguish OD from other practices.
If you are interested in having your voice involved in identifying and defining OD values for the future, please click on this link and complete the demographic survey.
We will randomly select 40-50 participants ensuring maximum diversity in terms of geographic location, professional identity, age, gender, etc.
Here is a tentative timeline of the study for all three Delphi survey rounds with approximate time required to complete each survey:
- Round 1: June 15-June 30 (40-60 minutes)
- Round 2: July 15-July 31 (20-30 minutes)
- Round 3: August 15-August 31 (20-30 minutes)
If you have any questions, please reach out to Dr. Hyung Joon Yoon.
Please consider being a part of this important research and add your voice to the discussion of the future of OD.
