How do we realize the vision for healthy and productive organizations that most OD practitioners have shared for over 50 years? DDOs (deliberately developmental organizations) may give us the answers.
We OD practitioners care deeply about people and we care deeply about organizational life. It’s people, after all, who make up the engines driving our businesses and agencies. But after years of trying to apply various OD theories and approaches, much of organizational life in the US is still pretty awful for a lot of people.
This program will focus on Keegan and Lahey’s DDO model with examples from current companies using this value-system to help everyone grow (see Immunity to Change or An Everyone Culture). Diana Goldberg, Adam Malaty-Uhr, and Scott Tang will share the model, give some personal examples, and facilitate conversation that will give you new energy on how to make this happen!
