OD Partnership Series - Learnings from the Field: A Collaborative Approach for Creating Organizational Values
Judith Sugg, PhD Alisa Blum Erin Newton
This training will be conducted live via Zoom. The zoom meeting details will be sent out prior to the training.
How are organizational values determined? How are they defined? What are the distinctions that make a difference?
Values permeate the culture. The values of an organization guide decision-making and clarify what is important. Values are more than a statement of intent; they are reflected at each level of an organization, from strategy formulation to decision-making to daily communications.
In the next offering of our “Learnings from the Field” series, you will learn a process to uncover and determine organizational values inside a large non-profit. This elongated effort engaged myriad levels of the system in an all-inclusive change effort. It was successfully implemented by our network’s Community Consulting Project team, our OD community’s pro/low bono OD consulting arm. Community Consulting Project (CCP) - ODN OREGON
