Summary of Organization Development
Principles, Processes, Performance
The everyman’s guide to the organizational development consulting business.
This simple book introduces the profession of organization development. It is written so clearly that a relative novice could probably read it and set up shop as an organizational development consultant (or at least know how to hire a good one). Gary N. McLean explains everything and does not unnecessarily complicate straightforward steps. In fact, some steps may be more complex than he makes them seem – although he does caution companies that organizational development may require outside expertise. getAbstract finds that his book will be most useful to those considering working in organizational-development consulting, or to managers who are new to the field.
In this summary, you will learn
- What organization development (OD) consultants do;
- How you can work as an OD consultant; and
- Why you need boundaries and standards of behavior.
