Virtual delivery for all short courses

As a response to keeping you and our facilitators safe during the COVID-19 situation, we have converted our short course offerings to virtual delivery only, via Zoom, allowing you to continue learning and developing during these challenging times.


The goal of organisational development is to improve how the organisation functions through theory and practice. As HR practitioners increasingly move from transactional to transformational and strategic roles, OD provides a theoretical underpinning for practitioners to effectively embrace strategic and change initiatives.

This introductory course provides an overview of fundamental OD theories. It gives HR practitioners a toolkit with which to apply an organisational development mindset to their work in order to create awareness, alignment and commitment to working with business partners to achieve long-term success and viability.


This course suits HR professionals with 1-3 years' experience who are seeking an introductory course in organisational development.
