Dear all,
As we all know --as management Practitioners-- in HR field that OD is a HR tool used by top management to study, assess the ways of their thinking,, practices, goals, managerial talents, growth and whole gamut of business they are in. OD Grid is an advanced tool to use for attaining the above objective. This is essentially an management intervention with the support of top management at conceptual level and the process of this OD intervention spreads over a period of time. Usually over 2 to 3 years.
This is a high end HR tool to apply over selected managerial personnel.It is internalised after getting the basic knowledge through formal training from the experts in the field.
Is their any institution or organisation which conducts such a senior level programme?
Can some one throw more light on this topic?

Dear Mr. Ranagarajan
What do you wish to achieve through this senior level programme?
Organisations are manage by a group of dynamic/strategic professionals or entrepreneurs. These professionals or entrepreneurs need to adopt and follow ETHICS, SET THE BEST WORK CULTURE, CREATE PROFESSIONAL AMBIANCE, PROVIDE AMPLE OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYEE GROWTH FACTORS etc. If this exist in organisations, you don't have worry about the OD CONCEPT.
The MINDSET of TOP MANAGEMENT should be tuned on TOP PRIORITY BASIS. If MANAGEMENT can apply these BEST PROVEN POLICIES, "PUT YOUR EMPLOYEES FIRST" and "TAKE CARE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES, EMPLOYEES WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR CLIENTS/ORGANISATIONS", i am sure, the organisation will meet/achieve their GOALS/TARGETS.
With profound regards

Many thanks. I am of the same opinion but you see the executive development or organisational development progragamme is planned at promoters or top management level when they envisage imminent changes within the organisation due to technological advancement in the near future or market share is slowly but steadily is eroded to other players. with all good HR practices in place. May be let us wait for others to comment if they have seen our thoughts.

Shaikh Saheb, even after adopting best practices within the organisation, OD is required for many reasons which include adapting new technolgy/ies, trainig to develop capabilities/skills of employees to meet new technolgy changes, policy changes, legal changes etcetra, and hence taking organistion to a new level than the last one.

EMPLOYEE TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT is a part of Organisation's STRATEGIES/POLICIES focusing ORGANISATION's and EMPLOYEE GROWTH FACTORS/STANDARDS, to bridge the gap or to develop SKILLS/COMPETENCIES in all employees. It is not the organisation that embraces change but, the EMPLOYEES AT LEVELS.
I suggest you to study, as how and why OD came into existence and also, what exactly is OD? In simple words, it is meant for TOP MANAGEMENT as they are the DECISION MAKERS and they are one held responsible for everything.
Please do correct me, if i am wrong. My experience and knowledge says that, bringing changes in TOP MANAGEMENT is a MAMMOTH TASK because, they feel that, THEY KNOW EVERYTHING.

In a organisation, on the TOP PRIORITY basis, whom do you think to embrace POSITIVE CHANGE, to support "systematic process of implementing effective organizational change"? With profound regards

Organizational development is the main task of the top Management level of persons who design the goals and objectives for the development of the orgnization. Each and every employee from top to bottom must put an helping hand for the development of Organzation. For this task the top management must design decent policies for the growth and development of the organization. Policy framers are mainly responsible for the Organizatinal Development. Not only creating a business policy, but also they should take care of its proper implementation in true letter and spirit for the growth of the firm.
