The future of OD and the acceleration of change in organizations
LISLE, Ill., Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Four years ago, in the throes of the economic recession, the canned food manufacturer Del Monte Foods reported a 14 percent increase in profits after taking a new approach to its market drivers, use of data and realignment and positioning of systems and processes.
Identifying, planning and implementing this kind of strategic and comprehensive change is what students in Benedictine University's Master of Science in Management and Organizational Behavior and Ph.D. in Organization Development (OD) programs learn in order to increase an organization's effectiveness and viability.
Benedictine University's OD programs are recognized locally, nationally and internationally as a leader in providing education toward managing the human side of enterprise, which includes global interdependence, workforce diversity and the management of change – the hallmarks of excellent managers and leading-edge companies.
The internationally acclaimed programs are overseen by Peter Sorenson, Ph.D., a leader in the field and an integral founder in the development of one of the country's first master's programs in OD. He, along with Therese Yaeger, Ph.D., another recognized name in the field and a leader in corporate organization dynamics, have put Benedictine on the map in the OD world.
In November, Sorensen and Yaeger will host a special lecture series with an extensive lineup of the world's top organizational change leaders in recognition of the more than 50 years the program has existed. Renowned authors, practitioners and thinkers in the transformational field of OD, including David Cooperrider, Ph.D., and W. Warner Burke, Ph.D., will gather for a two-day conference providing insight on the future of the industry.
This is an exceptional opportunity for people around the nation to come and dialogue with the best in the industry.
The event will be held from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 2, and from 8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 3 on Benedictine's main campus in Lisle, Illinois, 30 miles west of Chicago.
Tickets for the two-day event are $100 per person. Space is limited. To buy tickets and register, visit www.ben.edu/50plus.
