Build a Body of Organisational Development Knowledge
The SAODN has just announced a new strategic direction and the development of a new alliance partnership (more details to follow) which we believe will clarify our identity and allow us to focus our attention on the most important organisational development issues facing business in the 21st Century.
A key new driver for the SAODN is the growing need to create and share a strong, cohesive, professional body of African knowledge about Organisational Development in the Digital Age. We will be working to build OD capacity, improve the audited scorecard on defined OD standards and to collate and publicise collective OD wisdom.
Join us for an event organised collaboratively between Engagement Dynamics and the SAODN, where we will explore Collaboration and Strategic Partnering and their implications for Organisational Development practice.
The commercial appearance of train networks began in the 1820s and resulted in the hyper-connection (at least in those days) of places, people and products and the increased pace of innovation and development which characterised the first industrial revolution.
As the fourth industrial revolution opens gateways into dramatic new futures, collaboration and partnering will be vital ingredients in creating value and realising the opportunities which emerge.
