Join us for the CIPD Organisation Development Conference on 24-25 September 2019, London

Organisation Development is still surrounded by a certain level of uncertainty when it comes to its role and effectiveness within the business. Yet, most organisations are doing it even if they don’t realise. Building great teams, developing future skills and changing cultures are all key activities of OD that will make a huge difference in driving performance and productivity.

Recognising the key role of OD in organisations and ensuring that we build effective OD skills is essential to drive change effectively, and support our organisations in their journey to success. The CIPD Organisation Development Conference 2019 has been designed as a combination of two days of best-in-class case studies, expert-led panel discussions and practical interactive sessions to provide current and aspiring OD professionals with a holistic experience of how to increase their skills and performance.

From facilitating a collaborative culture, increasing engagement and managing organisation change effectively to increasing and profile and impact of OD, the two days will provide you with all you need to increase your confidence and skills as an OD professional and ensure you can create positive and long-lasting change within your business.
