Case study: raising the profile of OD to gain buy-in from other departments

OD is a complex discipline and its role is still not always understood or recognised by other teams and departments. In order to enhance our reputation and raise awareness of our roles, we need to spread our message effectively. But how can we do it in practice? The case studies in this session will focus on:

  • spreading the purpose of your OD initiatives within your organisation
  • making OD an open, welcoming and inclusive function within the business
  • articulating and communicating the impact of OD on growth and productivity
