WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE LANGUAGE OF OD

The Language of Organisation Development represents a library of OD definitions condensed into a handy toolkit. It is a valuable resource for HR/OD professionals who can very quickly and easily refer to the relevant pages whenever they wish to gain a better understanding of certain terms or to convey the meaning to others. The illustrations peppered throughout the book are creative, humorous and reflective of Lily and Peter’s personalities, making the book an entertaining read. I would recommend this book to other professionals in the industry seeking to consolidate their thoughts on OD!

I believe organisations can improve dramatically if their management have better understanding of how to anchor their HRD/OD competencies. HRD can only spearhead forward if the management is skilful in utilising this weapon of mass improvement. The language of OD is a great read for management leaders to understand the essence of people development. The book makes a technical topic engaging to read and easy to understand.
