The Future Trends of Organization Development

Monday, March 2, 2015 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Catherine Haynes, Ph.D. Candidate; Leen Zaballero, Senior Partner, Rothwell & Associates; and William J. Rothwell, President, Rothwell & Associates

Predictions are commonplace in the stock market and real estate, but they should be just as common in organization development (OD), which can be as volatile, with people moving from one organization to another for many reasons. As OD practitioners, can we predict how or why employees leave? Where is the OD field going? What will it look like five or 10 years from now?

A successful OD practitioner must be able to see around the corner in at least three areas: work trends, global trends, and technology trends. In this session we will discuss current business issues that practitioners are facing today, identify emerging trends that will impact the future, and discuss how an OD practitioner can stay ahead of these trends.

Upon completing the session, participants will be able to:

  • reflect on past and current conditions in the OD field
  • compare their predictions about the future with other professionals
  • review existing literature about emerging trends
  • discuss how to prepare for the future
  • brainstorm how OD can support future challenges.
