Organization Diagnosis and Change
Change is a reality of life for government, not-for-profits, and private sector organizations. Leaders are making concerted efforts to flatten their hierarchies, empower their workers, reconfigure how work is done, build partnerships, improve quality, make diversity an asset and build strong cultures. In examining these efforts, one finds stunning successes, dismal failures, and a lot in between. Doing it better is the goal of this workshop. The subject matter helps participants understand how to diagnose organization problems and create constructive processes to strengthen organization performance. These topics and others will be explored in a highly interactive format that emphasizes dialogue and reflective thinking. Participants will be engaged in facilitated discussions based on short readings, group exercises, and case analyses that come from everyday experience.
