What is Organization Development?

Organization Development, or OD, is the study of organizational change and performance. Unlike organizational development, which provides methods by which to develop an organization's staff, organization development's purpose it to develop the organization itself. By studying principles with which to create change, improve processes or manage projects, leaders can align their organizations and effectively engage employees toward better outcomes. At the UW Tacoma Professional Development Center, we offer a variety of programs and workshops designed to train working professionals in the rapidly growing body of knowledge surrounding Organization Development.
