The L&D Guide to Organization Development

ATD’s Organization Development Handbook is a tactical, hands-on book for those in learning and development looking to make that first step into organization development or those who are a one-person band doing both. While many books and textbooks exist on organization development—the effort to improve an organization’s capability through the alignment of strategy, structure, people, rewards, metrics, and management processes—this volume is the first of its kind to address OD from the talent development and, specifically, L&D perspective.

More than ever, L&D professionals are taking on organization development work to drive organizational effectiveness and performance. Sometimes this happens out of choice when seeking a new career challenge, and other times out of necessity when the organization adds OD to their responsibilities. In either case, L&D professionals need new knowledge and skills—as well as insight into how to utilize their analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation abilities—to become successful in creating OD solutions.

Edited by OD practitioner and expert Brian J. Flores, this volume includes in-house experts and consultant contributors from the OD field itself as well as those who crossed over from L&D to OD. Readers will learn how to apply the foundations of organization development to their multiculturalism, upskilling and reskilling, soft skill development, and succession planning processes and programs.

“As the lines between L&D and organization development continue to blur, professionals in both disciplines require time-tested principles and practices from thought leaders who’ve ‘been there and done that.’ That’s what ATD’s Organization Development Handbook offers—expert insights and strategies to support the results demanded of today’s organizations.”
Vice President of Consulting, Talent Metrics
"ATD's Organization Development Handbook is an excellent text for experienced and novice practitioners. It provides a strong foundation for those who wish to practice OD as well as those who are looking to reinvigorate their existing OD practices."
