Organization Development and Change

Organization Development & Change

Description of Track: The Organization Development and Change track invites submissions related to developing and changing organizations through the application of the social and behavioral sciences and a wide range of interventions designed to improve organizations. The "conversations” around OD and planned change are immensely diverse, and it is hoped that theory, research and practice explored in this track continue to stretch its boundaries while drawing on and informing OD’s foundations.
