  • Overview

    Organisation development is a planned change process to meet individual and organisational needs using behavioural and organisational science theories and techniques. The objective of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and tools to help organisations develop a vision, to conduct a diagnosis of individual, team, and organisational problems, to make an intervention plan, and to evaluate an intervention. In order to meet this objective we will explore the nature of the planned change process and we will have an in-depth look at behavioural and organisational theories and techniques which can be used to stimulate individual, group and organisational development.
