Not quite L&D, not quite HR, OD sits somewhere in between (or perhaps above?) the two. But what does 'organisation development' actually mean, and what skills do you need to do the job effectively? 

This week on the podcast, Ross D and Ross G are joined by return guests Julie Drybrough and David D'Souza to discuss: 

  • how OD differs from L&D and HR
  • the skills of a successful OD practitioner
  • the extent to which the name 'organisation development' is about internal branding
