    Generative Change – an alternative to the Planned Change Model with Gervase Bushe


    Special ODN Lifetime Achievement Award Presenter Gervase Bushe

    Live via zoom meeting.

    In this session Gervase will describe the Generative Change Model that has emerged from the research he and Bob Marshak have done into what makes contemporary OD methods succeed or fail.  Generative Change provides a way of thinking about how we use large group intervention methods that makes them more likely to be transformational.  Compared to the standard Planned Change Model, the Generative Change model is a better fit for today’s organizations that require greater agility and engagement.  His new book (The Dynamics of Generative Change: BMI Publishing, 2020) describes how a low-tech warehouse and distribution operation transformed into a highly engaged, collaborative, agile and fully digitized one in a little more than two years after the first phone call between the consultant and the Director. They accomplished this without a vision, without a plan, without training, any resistance to change, and only 1 external OD consultant.  They did it through an emergent, generative change process.

    Trust Repair Strategies


    Wendy Fraser

    This session is online via Zoom Meeting

    Trust permeates relationships. When there is trust within groups, information flows and issues can be resolved easier. However, working effectively as a team is incredibly challenging when groups experience a lack of trust. If left unaddressed it can seriously disrupt relationships and work systems. When this happens, the question arises:

    Is it possible to repair trust?

    Based on experience and research, the answer is yes! This session shares specific trust behaviors that can be used as a diagnostic instrument and a repair model that draws upon facets of OD. We will engage as a community of practitioners and explore repairing trust at the individual, interpersonal, group and organizational levels. Considering the pain the country is experience with racial injustice, this body of work can provide a strategy for healing.

      Lean Six Sigma meets Organization Development –

      The Rise of Systemic Coaching & Consulting


      Bill Braswell

      This session is online via Zoom Meeting

      Bill will share his professional journey that led him to adopt these two important disciplines to help him address the social and technical aspects of organizational performance improvement. Bill will share his insights on the differences and similarities of Lean Six Sigma and Organization Development and give examples of how he has integrated Lean Six Sigma and Organization Development in his consulting and coaching practice.

      The integration of LSS and OD has led to the emergence of a different way of thinking about coaching and consulting. He will introduce the concept of systemic coaching and consulting as a new way to think about a future approach to delivering value to organizations in our roles of coaches and consultants. How might a systemic approach disrupt our current thinking and practice? What might be required of coaches and consultants in the future? How might this impact our continuing education? These and many other questions abound when we explore the implications of Systemic Coaching and Consulting.
