Why a Global OD Practice Framework™?

Career Development. Define a clear set of knowledge, skills and behaviors in order to calibrate performance and plan, and manage development.

Professional Standards. Develop a set of standards for the OD profession, and clarify expectations for impactful results.

Common Language. Provide a global, common language to define the work of the OD profession and better understand what is important to know and do for success. It helps answer the question “What is OD?”
