Strategic Interventions is an exciting virtual OD program which integrates the knowledge and methodology of facilitating strategic planning with the skills and artistry for designing and delivering group and organizational interventions, the heart of OD work.
Strategic Interventions require change agents to manifest knowledge, skill, practice, and grace in helping organizations grow, change, and develop in the short term and in meeting the challenges of the future. This program combines the content and exercises of two programs from Step 4 in the NTL’s OD Certificate Program, Facilitating Strategic Planning, and Intervention Strategies, to expand conceptual frameworks on strategy and build the skills and knowledge to intervene at multiple organizational levels. The desired outcome is to be more capable and confident in delivering an OD approach to strategy and intervention work.
