Hi Mansi
Good to see your post.
Your questionnaire is very subjective. The entire Idea of a questionnaire on OD must not be to quiz employess on their knowledge of OD. Rather formulate questions asking them What OD techniques have they used in the past, the implementation details , etc.
Go through the idea about OD ... what it does, why is it appplicable... why would any organization like to implement it etc.
Also select a couple of sectors of your interest .. connect with their OD specialists and try to find out about their practices.
Your questionnaire can be either generic or industry specific depends on your preference.
Incase you need more help feel free to connect with me.

Thank you sir for your reply.
My idea was to ask experienced people in their field..irrespective of the industry..just to collect some information about the current scenario in the industry. I wanted to understand if textual concepts like survey feedback, t- groups are used in organizations or if new techniques are created and applied.
I really appreciate your reply sir, and if you could share and industrial example with me it would be extremely helpful sir.

Hi Mansi,
A questionnaire is to be made in such a way that you get opinions rather than answers. Opinion may vary from person to person & from organization to organizations; but answers remain the same.
In a questionnaire, any option could be an answer and it is totally dependent on the person answering. But, here, in your questionnaire, many of the questions have only one answer and remaining all choices are wrong. The questionnaire is framed like an exam question paper.
Do not frame questions directly from your text book. Do think for a while and frame questions in such a manner that there could be 4-5 answers for a question and the user has the freedom to pick the most suitable one depending on his organization.

Dear Manasi

Your questionnaire is good if its purpose is to test some one's text book knowledge of OD. It is perfect for a university exam on OD! However your objective as you mentioned is 'current trends in OD' so I assume your survey is targeted at HR professionals.

For example the following is your question:

In T group method an increased awareness to _______ is created.

• Emotions

• Teamwork

• Loyalty

• Culture

It can be changed as :

Have you employed the T Group approach in your organisation. If so , on a scale of 1 to 10 rate its effectiveness.

Now this question will give you an idea on whether organisations actually use T Group approach and if they do what is their success rate.

After each question it would also be ideal to include a comments section so that any additional information that the respondent wishes to furnish can be recorded.

You can even use open ended questions like

1) What are the common OD interventions used in your company .Please name atleast 3

2) Out of the mentioned interventions, name the one that has been most successful

I hope this helps. Please write back to us and let us know if you need any help.

can anyone answer this??? What are some of the traditional and current sources of recruitment used by organizations? What are their pros and cons?
