The E&A Landscape of Organisation Development

The E&A landscape, for those who don’t know it, is a powerful framework (developed by Craig Yeatman of Worldsview Academy) to, amongst many other things, orient Organisation Development practitioners and other people in organisations experiencing change.

Glass Rungs on a Wooden Ladder: An Anthropological Perspective on the Establishment & Adaptation Landscape of OD©

The E & A Landscape logically and coherently leads the organisation (and OD practitioners) down the path from concern (issue) towards clarity (resolution), but try convincing EXCO and senior management that something like OD (or as I am happy to call it: “corporate culture consulting”) can be beneficial for more than just group bonding, cutting flowers and singing songs around a bonfire.

Why should you register for the Higher Certificate in OD and Change?

As you get clearer on what organisation development can do for the organisation, you can help to grow this powerful alternative to the traditional ways of managing organisational life. Those traditional ways clearly just don't work. Selling "buy in", controlling change and thinking that organisations are linear "machines" does not deliver the effective organisation that is needed today.

Where Are We Now?

I was at www.flourishconference.org – and if you weren’t there, you missed the beginning of a powerful conference series about OD, for OD practitioners, with a South African flavour. Bill Zybach did a brilliant job of conference design and hosting, Keith McCandless (www.liberatingstructures.org) was generous with his time in preparing the presenters, the South African OD Network (SAODN) were visionary in their commitment ot the concept – and the 50 people who showed up at this “unknown” conference were inspirational.
