In this lecture Drs. Woodman and Pasmore will reflect on the past three decades of research and practice that have passed since the first volume of Research in Organizational Change and Development was created.
Woodman and Pasmore note a number of shifts that are causing us to re-think what we know and how we intervene in organizations today. These shifts, and their attendant effects on individuals, organizations and society, have opened up exciting possibilities for the advancement of O.D. These two great minds will also discuss how high rates of failure in organizational change efforts call attention t the need to identify and address persistent problems that threaten success.
Come visit us on April 22nd to learn how to combat these new problems through their reflections on utilizing motivation, leadership, creativity and teamwork!
